My activity on 144Mhz.
Next to my EME activity at home, I installed a portable station for EME 144MHz communication.
The station is located near the Northsea coast in the North of Holland between Den Helder and Alkmaar, a small town called Schagen. A must-see village for tourists!!
Summer 2015 I decided to dismantle the GHz station and prepare for 144MHz EME with a small set-up.
Summer 2016 I spend time to modify the antenna mast with an elevation and polarisation utility for the DK7ZB antenne.
July 2016 DK7ZB antenna is installed with full AZ, EL and Pol installation
July 2016 First results of RX EME with this small set-up.
Jan 2017 Finished SSPA and modified IC201 to be driven from PC for JT65B
May 2017 Station installed; ready to go for 1st EME QSO on 144MHz
June 2017 Replaced 7el yagi for 9el Yagi, with 2db more gain.
June 2017 1st QSO OK1UGA!
