Thank you Peter G3LTF, VE4MA & many others. I enjoy 2M but my array is 22ft /7.5M high & this summer I did go up many times to fix some of the problems i had. I am 80 years old & it showed so this would be a back up plan for me.
I need a Dish i can handle myself & 2.4 or 2.5M is probably the answer. I will be looking for one.
Living in NS Canada is not the center of the world & no one but me within 1300km is on EME so you have to be self sufficient to some extend. Thank God for moonet.
Thank you again
Serge VE1KG

  Hi Serge, In the contest I worked, CW, completely random (I did not have HB9Q on at all) Alex UA3TCF who has 2m dish and 200-250W. I saw his trace on the SDR, listened carefully and the QSO took about 15-20 minutes. I regularly work G4BAO with his 1.9m dish and the same power. A 2.4,m dish will get you lots of QSOs on CW and of course many more on JT.

  For some of you that actually are operating on 1296 could tell me the minimum size for a prime focus dish or offset dish to operate on CW? after you have worked the big guys?? Would anything less than 10 FT/3M be worst looking at or not??.
  Thank you
