agreed upon frequencies. There has been some discussion of JT65 frequencies
for EME, but again it is mostly done by schedule, or someone announcing
where they will call CQ.
Speaking of which, Thursday evening I worked HB9Q on his JT65C CQ, at
moonrise, on 432.133. I subsequently worked Dan on CW as well.
On JT65 I was running 400 watts to my single 432 Yagi at 108 feet. No
elevation. On CW I was running about 900 watts out, and Dan gave me a 449
report! This was only the second time I've ever worked EME on 432 (from
home). The first was in 1993 when I worked VE3ONT with their 150 foot dish
at Algonquin, Ontario. But that time I had a 120 element 432 array (and
sigs were SSB quality).
Anyway it appears easier than I thought to work the big stations on 432 at
Back to calling frequencies for JT65. There has been some recent talk about
changing or setting a call freq on 432, for EME. Until now there had been
an unofficial call freq of 432.040, but now some stations are trying to move
it up the band. I think around 070 or 080, not sure what the latest is. I
have not heard any discussion for two meters lately.
