Hello Tonno:

Thanks for continuing to try 21 EME.

Although no where near moon position optimum from Western PA this evening, I
will aim the 28 element array from here toward the moon as best as possible
- to see if I can hear you or Paul starting at 0300 Zulu.

Hoping for the best ES5TV to WA6PY on 21 EME tonight.

Hi, the previous effort was hopeless as the band was wide open at the time.

Anyhow, we have arranged a sked now with Paul, WA6PY tomorrow morning,
Thurday March 28th, 03:20z on 21070.

I will start to transmit towards moon (ca 245 degrees) at around 3 UTC. From
03:20z will start calling WA6PY in 1 minute sequences (3:20...3:22...etc).

Anyone hearing the echos can also try to inform me over email, skype
(tonnoes5tv) or phone +372 56 800 447.

I see moon setting at the same time in UA1, UA3, UR, down to African Eastern
coast to 5R.

The moonrise though occurs on West Coast (down to FO) so if we are lucky
west coast may copy me.

By all means there should be no direct propagation at this time of the day.

So listen out for me on 21070 from 3 to 4 UTC tomorrow morning.

I will try to do EME tonight 20-21z on 21060 and perhaps will try EME QSO
with RU1A.

Anyhow, anyone is welcome to listen to 21060 at this time and see if can
copy anything... and if so can try to answer over moon:)

Those having moonset around the same time are on the line from me through
southern Italy to TY in Western Africa. Moonrise is happening from
Kamtchatka pensinsula through central Pacific to VP8H:)

I am in skype as tonnoes5tv if anyone wants to synchronize.

Phone +372 56 800 447
