VK5APN (PF95jg)


My introduction into EME, I was using a IC706MK2, no GPS lock, no ext preamp, 100 watt Brick amp running at 80 watts into 14mts RG213 to a 10 element YU7EF 6mts high, with no elevation

I was becoming frustrated with lack of elevation control, so have changed that now. Even though I managed 14 QSO in 7 DXCC's with the one yagi. Many more could be possible. With the new set up the QSO rate has increased :-)

If you think we could work each other off the moon then email me.
I am a shift worker and work odd hours, so you never know, I may just be able to be on during your requested time.
I have also copied some of the big guns when using my single no elevation yagi at 30 degrees elevation. Sorry about the quality of the mobile phone video.

See the following computer generated antenna plot, of my single yagi.

See the Earth profile out to my Moon Set (due West from my QTH).

I would love to have you in my Log Book

Here is my QSL status. See if your card has arrived, or if I have sent you one.

Here is my WAS list. See who was my first contact for the different states.

This table shows all of my 2m EME QSO's (JT and CW)

# QSO's # Grid's # SQR's INIT BEST QRB WAC WAS DXCC
590 229/262 45/47 354 18 598.7 km 6/6 28/29 58/60

The 18 598.7km distance set a new VK Digital EME Record (as of 20th Nov 2011). Can anyone help me extend this?
I would like to know if anyone is going to HM49. Or anyone activating CU4-CU9. Thanking you.
HM49 is the closest square to my Antipode.

This table shows all of my 2m EME CW QSO's.

# QSO's # Grid's # SQR's INIT BEST QRB WAC WAS DXCC
