Grazie mille for your point of view. Don't worry, you don't temper my
happiness :+)
It's because I guesstimated the EIRP of the contesters, the characteristics
of my receiving chain and a 252 dB path loss that I decided to "loose" some
to listen to the lower part of the 144 and 432 MHz bands last week end.
I was happy to conclude that theory and practice agree, and also happy to
check the performance of my CW DSP(you know, the fuzzy one we have between
our ears).
During the two times 2 hours I listened, I copied IK3MAC and also SM5FRH,
but no US stations.
It was no so easy, due to the lot of industrial QRM we have here near Paris.
I recorded the transmissions on some wav files (300 kb each). For those
interested, please drop me a line.
Conclusion: yet another virus invaded my shack last week end ...

Hi Jean,

I'd hate to trim down, even a bit only, your happiness. It is not my intent
but I just need to remind you that EME contacts, like any other contacts,
can and have to be budgeted on the table before going on the air.  That's
the only way to communicate from point A to point B.  Ham station like
IK3MAC and others have approached EME in an absolute 'contest oriented'
mode. Such stations are size-calculated to be able to work standard stations
to generate the maximum score.  IK3MAC, the more famous W5UN, and others
like them have really monster stations. It is a definite proof the fact that
you received those signals even without a preamp and perhaps some 20-25
meters of RG213 in front of your rig.  If you had at least a 100 -150 Watts
amp you could qso for sure.
It seems like their calculations were just about right, ah? Still the moon
is very far but, more than that, it is a very poor reflector.  Keep working
on AO 0.

Best ,
