May 2002             - Although from calculation it was found that my echo's from the moon should be readable, it took until today that it really happens: My echo's

May 2004             - First experiments with JT65 mode. I believe this is a more confient way to check conditions for stations with poor echo capability like me.

March 2011         - First QSO's made since 2004!!. I used JT65B with only 20Watt on the antenna's and worked UA3PTW and I1NDP.

December 2012 - MAP65 now operational using FUNCUBE.

 May 2013            - Finally worked Africa Continent for WAC: Thanks to ZS6OB

January 2015     - Start to operate R&S VH501 Solid State Amplifier to replace GS35b.

April 2016           - Changed Antenna configuration to 4 x Horizontal coupled with 4 x Vertical Polarisation.

September 2018 - Restored original configuration 8 x Horizontal coupled.

September 2020 - Replaced defective couplers and RX coaxial cable.

April 2021           - The Yagi antenna's are now at PA3DOL. 70cm will now be integrated into the 3m Dish
