First EME tests with the new dish

06 May 2000

The final steps towards testing the system were made.

Calibration of the tracking system took a little longer than it should have due to not checking  that the time and location settings were correct...doh!!!

My first real echoes were heard at 1500 on 06 May and the first QSO with the new dish was with GW3XYW.

I made a total of 28 contacts over the next few days including LW5DX in Argentina... which qualifies me for the Worked All Continents award.
