Jean-Louis F6ABX and the group,
1. We wrote a post about our EME operation for the ARRL EME contest on November 20 &
21. This is what Jean-Louis wrote us about:EME (Earth Moon Earth) Moon Bounce
Communicating on the weekend of November 20 & 21, 2021 – Deep Space Exploration
2. I replied to his email this morning directly:
Thank you very much for writing me about the EME contacts. And thank you for identifying
those mistakes for me. Yes, those were typos. I was the person making the CW contact
with you. I do remember hearing you on the air, during our contact and at other times
during the contest. On our electronic log record, I did log you correctly. I confirm our
Station F5KUG with K0PRT (operator WA2JQZ) CW, 23cm EME (1296.007 MHz) sent 539, received
569, power 150 Watts, 60-foot dish antenna.
I revised the post on dses.science.
The QSO data was uploaded to ARRL Logbook of the World. You are welcome to write us by
mail for a hard-copy QSL card if you wish. (K0PRT - Callsign Lookup by QRZ Ham Radio)
I mistyped DL7UDA also. In that case I mistyped that on our log as well. But I kept the
hand-written QSO CW messages I wrote during the contest to check, in case I made a
mistake. I now corrected that error too. I remember looking up his callsign during the
contest, because I have been to Berlin, where he is located.
We plan to be on the air again for the last round of the ARRL EME contest in December.
Look forward to meeting you via the Moon again also.

Hi EMErs I am F6ABX main operator of F5KUG Radio-Club.
Who can help me to email Gary WA2JQZ ? I can't find his address .
This weekend I was reading his report on K?PRT during ARRL EME 1296 .
He typed a typo on F5KUG's callsign ,F5KUJ reported .
I would like to know if it is a typo or if he did not correctly copy the
callsign F5KUG in CW ?
(Yet I heard :" F5KUG de K?PRT " at his come back! )
In this case our QSO is not valid and we will have to try again !
Only 35 QSO's this first leg against 43 last year .I hope to do better for
the second leg .
