After some years of non-activity, I've decided to operate 144 MHz EME again. The equipment is in store, and I want continue in this exciting branch of ham radio. Full description of my EME station: http://oz1bxm.dk/eme/eme-station.html
The different categories within 144 MHz EME stations are shown below.
Category Ant-gain Example antenna
Monster 24 dBd 16 x 9 element yagi
Big 21 dBd 8 x 9 element yagi
Mid-size 18 dBd 4 x 9 element yagi
Small 15 dBd 2 x 9 element yagi
QRP 12 dBd 1 x 9 element yagi
I've assembled a small EME station with 15 dBd antenna gain. The antenna array is 4 x 6 element yagi which provides 15 dBd gain. The picture below from 26-april-2022 shows my array.

Azimuth rotor is Yaesu G-600 and elevation rotor is Kenpro KR-550. Both rotors are controlled by PSTRotator running on my Windows 10 PC.
I'll be a frequent visitor to the N0UK EME chat where EME-amateurs meet and arrange skeds.
I hope to work many initials in the time to come!
