Trying to cut down trees around the dishes for a better window towards the west.
To the left of my right ear you may see the edge of the 8m dish, next to be lifted.

I have worked another 11 stations on 13cm, only needing Africa for WAC.

I am now QRV on 6cm with the 4m dish and during the Dubus test I managed to work 23 different stations. After the contest PA3DZL and VK3NX were added. Output from the amplifier is 48 watts and echoes are solid most times.

Here is the ODU (Out Door Unit):

DB6NT Transverter with a 10 MHz ref. from the shack, LNA with 0,8 dB NF and the SSPA built by SM6PGP.
