Today I made my first EME qso on 3cm, tried to listen before on my small 48cm dish.

Started yesterday to build the system in the garden, today I tried to hear OZ1LPR on my 48cm, heard him fine with -16.

My rig is 15W and 1.8 dB NF.

Then I borrowed a 90cm Procom dish from Peter, here the setup in the garden :

2016-05-06 14.35.05

2016-05-06 14.35.28

2016-05-06 14.37.42

Now it was time to try a qso, and we did

oz1lpr-oz7z-first-eme

First EME qso on 3cm :-).

Equipment at OZ1LPR : 2.4m Offset dish, NF = 0.8dB and 250W.

Here a small video, recorded during the qso, the left signal is the EME and the right is tropo(10km).
