Hi 70cm EME operators,
If everything goes as planned, I will be QRV on 70 cm for the EME contest this weekend.
I plan to be on both nights.
I have CW and JT-65 modes operational.
Plans are to work as many CW stations as I can, then switch to calling CQ.
I normally hang out around 432.012 plus or minus QRM.
My plans may change due to band conditions.
I have 8 FO-33 stacked on the horizontal side for transmit and receive, and 4 FO-22 stacked on the vertical, for receive only.
A lot of the stations I work last time was with only 2 FO-22 antennas on receive due to a lot of the signals coming in vertical not horizontal.
Due to this, I could tell with my water fall display, I missed a lot of stations just below my noise floor.
This time I have 4 antennas stacked in the vertical and a better preamp installed, so another 3 dB S/N may just make the difference.
I hope to work many more of you this time!
Please watch for me and work me!
