I have Moon rise at 0130 utc 15Nov. which is my quiting time at my 
workplace, so I probably will be QRV about 0200 to around 0900 or 1000utc.
I may be QRV again on Saturday morning (1600-1800utc).  I am net 
control for a local VHF net at 1800utc so that will end my 
participation on the Moon.

Efforts have focused on getting the 4.9m dish ready for mounting and 
refurbishing a 50-foot tower to be raised with HF, 6m, 1-1/4m, and 
70cm antenna.  We now have the boom truck scheduled for Tues. pm on 
Nov. 18.  So we have much work to accomplish during the daytime this 
weekend which will preclude operating beyond the first night.

This has also resulted in having no time to devote to the 2m-8877 
PA.  So we will be QRV on 144.116 & 144.148 JT65 "assisted mode" 
running QRP with 180w.  Several stations have written wanting to work 
me so this is the best we can comply with.  We received another 
3-inches of snow today so winter wx is challenging us.  Last Sunday 
was -2c with 35-40 mph wind (not nice to work out in).

We will call CQ a fair amount of the time on or near the cited frequencies.
GL to all.
