Today was the last microwave activity day of the year. Vienna was cold and somewhat foggy. Nevertheless, OM Gerald OE1GAQ, Taulant, and OM Chris OE1VMC withstood the creeping cold on the institute’s roof for two hours and OE1XTU made three SSB voice contacts on the X-Band at 3 cm wavelength (10368.1 MHz +/- 6 kHz, H-Pol.) using 0.25W Tx power and 16dBi horn antennas. The OE1XTU transceiver was identical to the setup used on Sep 18 and yields 40 dBm EIRP.
