So Joyce and I took the RV and camped nearby to give 70cm EME a shot. Using a single 9wl Yagi, 500 watts, and a Honda generator I worked the following folks during a single moon pass: WA4NJP (-18), OK1KIR (-17), HB9Q (-14), DK3WG (-16), DL7APV (-16), UA3PTW (-19), OK1DFC (-20), UT6UG (-20), LZ1DX (-16), G4RGK (-21), DL9KR (CW 559), UT5DL (-24), DL8GP (-29), UX5UL (-22), OH6UW (-27), K2UYH (-18), and DF3RU (-18 State #50).
Could this be the first EME operating from Yellowstone Park?
|Simple, quick EME setup.|
|Folks were there waiting for my first CQ!|
|That's DL9KR's awesome CW signal going down the screen.|
