Again raining cats ’n dogs all nite thru…. Nasty noise, lousy conditions. Didn’t see no signal for long periods due to noise and QRN-rain.

Moon pass was rather dissappointing. We had the strongest noise ever peaking +10dB on Hpol and more than +14dB Vpol. We found the noise source after investigating several days. Read the Daily Blog for more. Here’s the log:

Moon pass 4 was very nice, noise was lower than the nights before. It was still there but not all the time. The weak part was the ongoing Marconi CW Contest in Europe causing huge QRM in the EME range for most of the EU’s. 70 QSO this moonpass.

Moon pass on day 3 was not bad but still not satisfying. At 21.00UT we had power outage for severals hours. We still have that strange kind of broadband noise from unknown origin but we’ve learned, that locals are re-broadcasting TV signals on 144. That might be the suspect since the noise sounds like digital voice every now and than. The noise has a huge peak around 144.100 with wobbling sounds weakening higher at the band. The band starts to be silent at
144.250, unfortunately. This is why we changed our QRG to 144.144 where it is not as strong as on 144.114 before.
In addition we become perfect ant hunters. These nasty beasts are everywhere now and they are millions. Every part of the equipment is housing huge families….grrr. They are looking at us from the backside of the LCD inside of the K3. And they don’t pay no fee. Wait…we gonna buy some Philippine Ant Killer Spray. Har har.

Second moon pass was better than the first one, not as much T-storms as the night before. But we are still struggling with some kind of strange pulsing
noise from unknown origin. Unfortunately it peaks right in the EME range from 144.100-144.150 while it’s alsmost silent starting 144.250 and up.
Noise gives us up to +10dB in times, a mess. Anyway a lot of new inits in the log and the pile up was huge. Have patience please. We see >30 or even
more callers very often H and V!

This is the log from day #1. The system works fine but we are struggling with strong thunderstorms all the time. So we had to disconnect more than half of the moon time in the first pass since the t-storms were rigth above our QTH and that was pretty dangerous, In addition QRN was very strong in times due to the air filled with high voltage by endless lightning. We ask for patience and appologize.
