ARRL EME CONTEST 2020
In the first round of this year's EME ARRL I was a QRV with a parabolic dish offset of 2.6m diameter. For the contest I made a new collar for the septum feed, which I have been using since 2000. New dish has F/D 0,6. Because I had finished making the feed just before the start of contest, there was no time for any experimentation and positioning. The next days after the contest, I saw the feeds and optimized the feed itself by having the SWR feed at -36dB and hearing my own -16dB reflections back. S/CS is 10dB. I look forward to round two in the November. Worked in first round were:
