There was very nice CW activity during ARRL contest this year (on all bands except 2m from US) and it is unfortunate I did not have a lot of free time for it.
I also “worked” JT65 logger eme (I thought: who is going to find out anyway??) and apart from constant chatter I also found JAMMING.... a lot of Jamming, even from its own creator!!?
Check a small part of it from N0UK logger:
11/19 17:04 VE3KH you being jammed by K1JT and W6YX (W7IUV Larry WA DN07dg 18.104.22.168)
11/19 17:05 Why Larry .... they on 142 also? (VE3KH Kevin ON FN03aj 22.214.171.124)
11/19 17:06 They are calling me to get a contest poitn and it ain't gonna happen!! (W7IUV Larry WA DN07dg 126.96.36.199)
11/19 17:08 Thansk Larry 73 ... Yes, I have been jumped by a quite a few stations (VE3KH Kevin ON FN03aj 188.8.131.52)
11/20 17:47 Also hr k1jt calling me -22 but not ans him (KN4SM/5WL/KW Jerry VA FM16qt 184.108.40.206)
11/20 18:02 Contest = reduced courtesy! (K5DOG/2M Stevedog NM DM52xw 220.127.116.11)
11/20 18:04 Yes, K1JT and W3SZ can hear on gold tooth. (K5DOG/2M Stevedog NM DM52xw 18.104.22.168)
One thing I wouldn’t regret missing on EME is JAMMING!!!

I have this QRO-amplifier for sale but because of the weight and size, only local pickup is possible.
Think ít´s only interesting for amateurs located in Sweden.

I bought this powersupply SNT Emerson BML 231 204/5
It is standard set to 54Vdc output and contains a fiber optical interface.
No further adjustments at all.
Is there any-1 who has experience with this kind of powersupplies and configured it down to 48Vdc?

The container that I send from China with some personal stuff has arrived at my home, in it I also put some mesh dish antenna's to fill up some left spaces ;-)
These are professional antenna's from COMSTAR brand, I have a few ST-10 type (3.0m) and ST-12 type (3.7m) available.
Specs can be found on internet, e.g at:
The ST-10 I have available for 750 Euro
The ST-12 I have available for 1500 Euro
The price turn out a little higher than I estimated before, mainly due to the many charges when it entered European land.
All antenna's are new and still in the box, as it came from the factory.

I wonder if anybody else is using an SDR-IQ receiver with Windows 7 64 bit OS. I am
trying to transfer my programs over to a new computer and I am having difficulty
getting Windows to accept the SDR-IQ USB driver that was provided when I installed
Spectravue. Windows 7 just automatically installs a USB DRIVER everytime I plug in my
SDR-IQ and it won't seem to ever let me change it :-( There just MUST be some way to
force Windows 7 to use the correct driver...but I sure can't figure it out:-(
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! MNI TNX and VY 73, Lance

Very limited participation today.
Last weekend was impossible with the Field Day activity.
VE6TA Checked is this morning.
WB7QBS Glenn is still working on combining two 432 amps for his EME system.

No other news.
I looked for Europeans on SSB and CW but no signals out of Europe.I will continue to look that way and give a few calls on CW every weekend.
I have for sale a LT2S MKII 2 meter linear transverter. I run a Flex-5000 radio and do not need it anymore. Output power is 20 watts. I have used this on JT65B for a long time and it does not drift. I also have the manual for it. Asking $300 + shipping. If you like a picture of it? I would be glad to send.
