9cm EME

I spent a bit of time today trying to figure out how to mount my 9cm RA3AQ feed to the cage on my EME dish.
This evening I managed to mount the feed to a surplus aluminium box chassis of the right height to bring the centre of the feed in line with the centre of the dish.
Tomorrow I plan to add the 9cm LNA and feed the 9cm signals back to the transverrter in the shack through a length of LMR600 that is already installed in the duct.
This weekend has been designated as the 9cm Activity Weekend (AW) when all those with suitable equipment for the band can make contacts, do measurements and generally check out the system without the inevitable pressures of a contest or new DXCC/Locator challenge!
