Předmět: [Moon-net GG] FW: Update VP2EMB, EME DXpedition on 2 mtr, 70 and 23cm.
 
Hello EME-ers, 

In about one  week we will travel to  Anguilla Island ! 

Just some info:

-  Online log, info and pictures will be on  QRZ.com:  VP2EMB

-  Some pictures at PA2CHR website: http://pa2chr.nl/News.html

 

Important operation notes:

* We expect to have moonrise at about 15 degrees of elevation!   This was a choice because the house is partly in front of our antenna if we will keep coax short.   Short coax gives us the possibility to operate both 2 mtr. and 23 cm. at the same time.   All the VK, JA and ZL stations can be worked only during moonset from VP2 anyway; so no problem    for them and our moonset is very good overlooking the ocean.

* If we finish the setup very fast on 11/4  we might become QRV that day on 2 mtr.

* Operation on 22/4 depends on activity, we don’t expect to be QRV that day.

* 23 cm. operation after being QRV during 3 moonpasses on this band depends also on activity.

* In spare time we plan some activity on HF bands with a High End Fed and/or dipole antenna.
