ARRL EME Contest 2007:

After a long year of heavy work, this weekend we had the last weekend EME contest, plenty of activity, many station on VHF on JT65 has provide us of many hours of enjoyable operation.

On October weekend, my station setup was IC-275 with home made preamp in the shack, a 4CX1500B amplifier, with a 19 single yagi antenna. The weather was not cooperative and heavy QRN during first pass make very difficult to receive any signal, after storm was gone, some stations appear. On the next day, weather was OK, and 14 contacts was made, a big improvement from last year (3 QSO´s on both weekends, running only 100 watts)

In the middle, I finished 4 x DJ9BV yagis, mounted horizontally, with a new ARR MGF1402 preamplifier mounted in the top of the tower with relays, with 2 coaxials Andrew 7/8" for TX and RG213 for RX.

 In November, on first pass, Friday night (LU time), we can heard many station making QSO, one every Khz, but none of them answer my calls, for a couple of hours, this introduce some doubts regarding some TX problems, but after that, I started to works one station after another. On Saturday morning after minutes of moonset I worked JM1GSH on my first Japan contact on EME.

Here you can see operation in live video during the contest in a QSO with DH4FAJ.

On the finals, I worked KL7UW in Alaska great QSO !, with a total of 59 QSO, an impressive 1900 %

I have to mention that this was not possible without the help of many people, but in particular of Fernando LU2ACN and Nestor LU8AJ, who help me with this project, Thanks a LOT!
