After a long absence from anything to do with moonbounce I took the chance to activate the big dish antenna at DL0SHF in Kiel which can operate on 1296 MHz. I had some free time on the 24 November and I drove over to Per DK7LJ. Everything ran perfectly and after 4 hours and some 36 contacts in CW I was tired and I drove home. I had fun with working a lot of guys I met on the radio via the moon years ago last time. Signals were strong and listening to all this was real fun. I only worked CW (morse code) and allthough there was a lot of "digital" activity I stayed with CW.
Years ago - when being younger - I was able to stay up a whole night for this... no not anymore ;-) But from time to time I hope to activate this big station a bring some fun to others as well.

Every year suddenly we have this CQ WorldWide contest on shortwave at the end of November and every year I try do make at least a few contacts. This year I wanted my amplifier with some 400 watts behind my transceiver, but for an unknown reason so far it refused to operate properly and I put it aside. The transceiver ran "barefoot" with 95 watts into my little dipole. From time to time I sat down at the desk and I made a few CW (morse) contacts. I came out with 127 QSOs with 52 countries in five continents. Only South America is missing. Alltogether not bad for my little station ...
