first 23cm EME QSO
OK1DST with G4CCH (JT65c)
in enclosure I send some pictures and print-screen of
QSO, use it if you want to.
BTW you can use anything you want from my yesterday
mail + my equipment info.
Transvertor DB6NT 144/1296
PA 2x 2C39 (max. 160W out, WSJT cca 120W)
Rectangular feed with septum polarizer
.. maybe you're curious about "doghouse" - yes it's
really doghouse and it works FB, it's from stiff plastic material :-)
(they have similar one for bigger dogs as well...)
some pictures I'll send you tomorrow because of lack of
time... I did it in the afternoon and I still
have some problems with dish rotation control. I have to complete triac
regulation - so I'm rotating semi-automatically yet (PC is shaking with
dish and I have to make eye-metric manual correction :-))
That drift I've been
[note of 1teh: thermal signal drift during each period],
lucky I have on intermediate frequency (I'm running via db6nt transvertor
from 144 MHz) IC-910 with 23cm module, so I can listening on SUB rx and
I'll put there Spectran and I'll see my output signal - then I start with
fan experiments :-) I've almost completed QSO with Franta, OK1CA during
last week, but he didn't decode me (he saw me -17dB) and at that time he
hasn't CW paddle, so we didn't make it (we hrd each other on speaker so CW
QSO would be easy). At that time I had my equipment below antenna on the
grass, HI. I never imagine, that completion takes more then one week..
So greetings and
thanks for help with info about my signal!
