Microwave EME weekend

Last weekend on EME microwave started on Friday, when was QRV Zdeněk OK1DFC from the meeting in Gajow on 24GHz with callsign SP0VHF. OK1KIR and OZ1LPR were QRV also, which I heard OZ1LPR well during the tests, so we made easy QSO at 16:57 UT by mode QRA64D -16/-15 at 150Hz signal spread. Afterwards, Zdeněk also started the tests, I started decoding it from the -18dB signal level and at 19:10 I worked him with the -18 / -20 reports. At that time I had a moon noise of 1,9dB, the weather was clear but the relative humidity was 88%. On Saturday morning started shortly after moonrise on 6cm in DUBUS EME Contest. The first QSO I made with SA6BUN followed by QSOs with JA4BLC, JA1WQF, JA8ERE. I worked SP0VHF as my 80th CW initial on 6cm band. An interesting QSO was also from TM1MOON, a special prefix for the moon's human landing. I made a total of 25 QSOs on Saturday, I missed only IK3COJ. On Sunday I was QRV shortly after the moonrise and did HB9Q and I only heard JA8IAD and JA6XED.

I was QRV in the DUBUS Contest in 13cm in last weekend from Saturday 11,00 Tue to Sunday 01,00. The start was interesting with the activity of JA, 4 stations in total, of which the new JJ1NNJ # 150. Then followed VK3NX, the one at 2301.975 MHz. Were missing the stations from G, F, PA, ON, probably due to bad weather with strong wind. The new station was also UA3TCF for me # 151. The NA was not too big, the new station was WA3RGQ, with a good signal, but CW ignorance. Total I did 30 QSOs. On Sunday afternoon I was QRV for a while at the beginning of the last part, but I just heard a few known stations.
