ARI XV EME Contest Weekend - 20th and 21st September
I was active on 13cm only during the contest weekend, and had a great time. This was my first experience of an EME Contest on 13cm, and there was plenty of activity and some exceptionally strong signals predominantly from HB9SV, RW1AW, OH2DG and G3LTF.

I managed to make a total of 30 QSO’s, and added 15 Initials and 3 DXCC’s in my log... a fantastic result for me and well beyond what I had expected. Many thanks to ALL for all the QSO’s and especially Zdenek for another great expedition… lots of effort again, well done.

As promised, I took the opportunity demonstrate 13cm EME by streaming some video and audio through the BATC website, and at times I saw up to 16 viewers… I hope they found it interesting. I hope to do this again during future activity weekends, and will try to improve the camera position and include the TX audio next time.
