17Jan 16:48 another day  Jay   I do operate 6M   but usually keep only 2 or 6M on at a time --figure it might save the front end of the radio 	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:47 OK thanks.  Need DM61 for FFMA still - 73-	(W9RM/6/2/QRO Jay CO DM58xn 216.189.31.27)
17Jan 16:46 Jay    nil right now  every thing turned off    thinking about  breakfast  	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:45 K5LA Floyd, are you QRV 6M ?	(W9RM/6/2/QRO Jay CO DM58xn 216.189.31.27)
17Jan 16:45 Gedas when my ant's get some elevation then everything changes  sure makes a difference	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:45 we got ice rain B4 the snow	(AA2UK Bill NJ FM29pv 73.178.191.132)
17Jan 16:44 antnnas iced up here	(AA2UK Bill NJ FM29pv 73.178.191.132)
17Jan 16:44 ahhh, I have too slow an internet connection LOL.  GM Bill	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt 173.30.161.187)
17Jan 16:43 gm Ged	(AA2UK Bill NJ FM29pv 73.178.191.132)
17Jan 16:43 on an EME setup that is a different story....IF your background is very, very quiet and you can elevate ur antennas then that 0.5 dB reduction in noise floor can be of value.	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt 173.30.161.187)
17Jan 16:42 Gedas we are talking about EME---true with tropo  just too much noise  	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:41 R notice that 0.5 dB different on a tropo setup.	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt 173.30.161.187)
17Jan 16:41 W8PEN, adding the LNA at the antenna when you have 0.5 dB line loss wud be wasted effort & added complexity IMO (for what it is worth) esp considering ur background ambient noise level. You will NEVE	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt 173.30.161.187)
17Jan 16:40 73  Don  thanks	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:40 Don I can switch out my lna and there is a 5 or 6 db gain in sensitivity with lna  at ant--I use a kuhne tr-144 Pro transverter  which has a noise figure around .5 db  	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:40 K5LA Floyd, Go to go.  Thanks for the try.  I got something going on upstairs.  73 and would sure like more pointers on eme as I go along.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:39 K5LA Floyd, I live out about 2 miles, but there is an industrial park within 2 miles of me.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:38 I live in the big city also Don so lots of noise  here also	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:37 K5LA Floyd, RR on that.  I think amp and all will go there.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:37 K5LA Floyd, For sure.  In case you did not catch it, I got noise here on rx so I quit transmitting.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:37 Don put it right next to the power divider	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:36 nil  Don   nothing on 2M MS yet===little late also for MS between us	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:36 K5LA Floyd, Well, when I put it on the 10 ft tower, it will be right up there.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:35 you can work eme with lna at the radio but you will have much better results with lna at the ant--as close as possible.	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:35 K5LA Floyd, You or Mike didn't hear anything from me did you?	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:34 I calculated my loss uning a watt meter and came out at less the .5 db.  I will consider putting the lna at the antenna.  Have heard a lot of pro and cons on it.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:33 .5 db loss  --you would not think so but it really does make a difference	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:32 loss	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:32 I use about 75 ft of 7/8 in heliax plus 1/2 inch at ends      around .7 db loss in feet line	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:32 K5LA Floyd, I figured with just 60 feet and less than .5 db less, it would not make a difference.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:31 Don the lna at the ant works better than at rx---I get a 5 or 6 db gain in sensitivity with my lna at the ant	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:31 K5LA Floyd, Thanks for the try.  Will have to try in the morning when rocks are more plentiful.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:30 K5LA Floyd, I just started picking up a lot of noise on 2 meters so I stopped transmitting.  Helpless right now..	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:29 Vertical wud be great for europe or japan   ---many times I know they are coming in vert pol  because they can switch pol and I can copy them then	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:29 K5LA Floyd, m2-5wl, then 60 ft of 1/2 inch Heliax, then a .5 db Advance Research preamp.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:28 K5LA Floyd, can we try to work on 6  - need your grid for FFMA	(W9RM/6/2/QRO Jay CO DM58xn 216.189.31.27)
17Jan 16:28 K5LA Floyd, Been trying for months.  Waiting for good conditions at the end of the month.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:27 you should be able to copy some of the big guns  especially around your moon rise  	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:27 K5LA Floyd, Unfortunately, I already have the two antennas.  They will either be horizontal or Vertical.  Vertical would be much easier.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)
17Jan 16:26 many times pol switches  on eme  --wud save you lots of time  waiting for fatraday rotation to shift  back	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
17Jan 16:25 K5LA Floyd, So far, I have not been able to copy any eme with my single antenna.  Think I am picking up too much noise here, so I plan to go to 10 feet or so.	(W8PEN/6/2/LP Don OH EN80sj 24.210.33.84)

17Jan 16:23 great Don you will have lots of fun on eme  	(K5LA/2M Floyd TX DM61tv 170.72.68.191)
