|DSLWP Lunar Satellite.|
My first receiving attempt was 4 weeks ago. My yagi antenna and preamp was ready for reception. Power to the preamp was fed via the coax cable. However, the preamp oscillated, and S9 noise was generated. No JT4G signals received.
The second attempt was 2 weeks ago without the preamp, and no antenna elevation. The Moon was high in the sky, about 40 degrees. No signals detected. I have to aim the antenna directly at the Moon!
My third attempt was done this morning. The antenna was controlled in azimuth and elevation, and this time the preamp was fed via an external power supply. But preamp oscillation continued; lots of noise, no signals.
I am not giving up. I will continue listening for the lunar satellite DSLWP. Next time, my antenna will be equipped with azimuth and elevation rotators, and NO preamp!
