In DUBUS REF EME Contest - on 23cm

Good activity during the contest. Unfortunately my score was not as good as last year.
Worked 77 stations, and missed DF2VJ, G4IDR, LU1CGB, PA3FXB, OK2ULQ, HB9Q, ES6RQ
Added one initial G4CDN #450

Here's the log - with reports omitted, so as not to compromise contest details

Future Activity

Next activity will be on:
Hopefully on 29th & 30th April 2017 on 9cm in the DUBUS/REF EME Contest - weather permitting

23cm

All that you need to make a JT65c QSO with me is >20dBi antenna and >100W... why not give it a try sometime, you might be surprised.

I can be QRV again over the next few days on CW and JT65c.
If anyone else wants to try then please E Mail me - howard(at)g4cch(dot)com

When I am QRV (but not during contests), you can usually find me on 1296.015 CW or 1296.085 JT65c. I have Internet access in the shack, and check HB9Q's logger and ON4KST microwave chat for possible activity. 

13cm

Please email me if you want a sked, otherwise you should find me during the various activity weekends... I will announce when I am going to be on.

 

Worked All States (WAS)

So far I have had 23cm EME QSO's with stations in 37 of the 50 US States. To complete WAS I need the following 13 states:  AL, AR, DE, KY, MN, MS, MT, NE, NV, OR, SC, SD & TN.

I would like to hear from anyone who could activate these states on 23cm EME either on CW or JT65... please email me if you have a 23cm EME capable station or have plans to build one, or if you intend to do an expedition to any of the listed states.
