V5 - Namibia - 4.25.11
On May 1 I'm travelling to Namibia to activate a 6m EME station for 2 weeks, Martin V51W is living in Namibia and operate a top class HF station, now he is expanding his operation to EME and he will start with the "Magic Band", Hanspeter HB9PHJ travel 2 weeks ago to finish the Antenna setup, now we have a 2 antennas M2 6M7 with 7 elements already installed, first E-sporadic and tropo contacts was done during last days, power will be a 400W SSPA amplifier, no preamp, no elevation but we can move manually the array to any elevation and fix that position for some skeds.
V55EME operate in a very wild area in Namibia, the place is far away from any town, internet access is very restrictive and we will not operate with loggers but we will able to update one time each 2 days our log via Moon-Net GG. I will be the operator (V5/HB9DRI) and my main job will be to teach Martin how to operate JT on 6m, he lives in Namibia means this will be a initial operation and he will remain operating regular from his place. Later a preamp and EL will be added.
I invite the 6m enthusiastic guys to contact me and pre-organize some skeds, frequency operation etc. We need as much as possible 6m EME stations on the air.
The station in Namibia will be:
Call sign : V55EME
Operators: V51W (Martin), V5/HB9PHJ (Hanspeter), V5/HB9DRI (Alex)
antenna: 2 x M2 6M7 (e el each)
