144 MHz EME
16 January 2011 I2FAK went (again) into the log. I spent some time receiving with 2 receivers (Flex-1500 and SDR-IQ). With the MAP-65IQ software I am able now to decode a whole portion of the band at a time. 12 stations were monitored randomly and 5 of them were never copied before.
15 January 2011 Again on EME I worked EB5GP #99 and EB5EEO #100 (!). I have been listening to the CW event, and copied a few stations.
14 January 2011 I worked EME DF2ZC, RK3FG, DM1CG #97 and F5GHP #98

Finally I got it. On 15 January I worked EB5EEO as station number 100 on the 2m band. 2m operation here in Kiel began in 1990 when I worked W5UN in CW as my first station. In 1997 we (DL3LE now and I) put up a 4*17 Element antenna and I worked about 20 stations all in CW. By 2004 I became QRV again with a marginal station with 150 watts and a 9 element antenna via EME on 2m. Now with the digital mode JT65B things became easier and it was possible to work stations with smaller setups. The majority of stations was worked in that mode. Nevertheless a few CW stations were added. Some are worked in either mode (CW or JT65B). Thanks to all for looking to my weak signal.
