    EME In 2006

    I managed to hear some of the bigger stations about including OK1DFC, OE9ERC, ON7UN, G4CCH and probably a few others i could not positively identify!. All these stations have been on cw but have heard a few stations on JT65c also..

    This is with the home made 1.8M dish, 12.5mm steel mesh and 15mm square ribs manually hammered into shape using a jig!
    Feed was a 3 turn helical at this point.


    OE9ERC the strongest JT65 station i heard..

    On CW the loudest station heard was OK1DFC...
