created maps for worked QSO from Crete Island
1.ES opening at Crete. Worked lots of Italian stations
Worked one F and one RU station.
Arrived at the house at Crete at night day 29.05. Setup of antennas this
Time 2 x 8el. stocked over. QTH is excellent great takeoff all directions.
QSY from Santorini Island KM26 to Crete Island KM15
As I can stay longer in the house until the ferry goes to Crete Island I`m
able to operate 29.05.2022 in the early morning hours again for some
Means I operate 02UT on 144.165 MHz in MSK me always in 1.period.
Last chance to get KM26.
SV8/DK5EW worked maps
Have been 1.5h QRV then power fail in whole area. In this 1.5h I had not a single caller so
guess KM26 is not interesting anymore.
last operation will be Saturday 28.05.2022.
I will be QRV 2 UTC what is 05 local.
Meteorscatter 144.165 / MSK144 / SV8/DK5EW in 1.period
My beam to central Europe
Please call me with rprt to speedup QSO .(if you hear me)
Please click “SH” in software to decode long callsigns
Staying QRV till evening dismantle of antennas Sunday morning before
leaving to SV9
PA failed no EME.
Worked via Meteoscatter:
System is setup and RIG is working. Did first MS QSO with Sakis, SV2FPI.
QRM noise daylight is OK will see what´s it in the night for EME.
Arrived today in KM26ri. As you may read before my origin QTH was canceled by host and I had to search urgent a new one. This new QTH is far as good as the 1. one if
not to say it is worse. Blocked in several directions except moonrise east to south. For EME with this low elevation it is nearly blocked to moonset west.
Tomorrow I will setup the antennas and check the conditions. If you are able to work me in any case you should be happy about this super rare square. I will give my best.
All RIG is final tested and ready for packing. PA was tested last 3 month without any issue.
Accommodation at Santorini was canceled today by host without reasons.
Found another one in KM26RI but I don’t know how suitable this QTH is for EME and if it is possible to do radio operation. I will check it when I am on site.
