Quick Update

I finally managed to complete the repairs to my dish on 20th April, and after a few problems made my first QSO with SM3AKW at 2120. Over the next few days I made some 37 QSO's and added some Initials with AL7RT, KH7X, JR4AEP, OY/DL3OCH, TF/DL3OCH x 2 and PE1HNG. All seems to be working as before, and I hope to resume work on equipment for 13cm EME very soon.

Here's the log (all contacts are on CW unless otherwise stated)
