Jamesburg 32m AZ/EL dish antenna.
Yup. More dish.
This dish needs a wash.
Back of dish blocking the sun for me.
The white thing on the left is an old radome that's being used as a shed. Wild stuff.
Jim checking the dish motors.
More dish ass.
Almost identical shot, but with right color tone settings.
Dish steering computers. It is tracking the moon for the EME contest.
Fuzzy picture of the dish AZ/EL display.
Jim and Kevin go to work on the 9cm transverter.
This is where the signal comes into the dish.
A shot from the steering deck up to the level directly behind the dish center where the radio signals enter.
Testing 2m EME station.
On the steering level deck.
Looking down the stairs from the steering deck. The number of steps is significant.
Looking up behind the dish.
Al, looking at the 9cm station.
Dish in nearly birdbath position.
Note the van in the picture for a sense of scale.
More dish as it tracks the moon.
Entrance gate to the facility.
Shot of the dish and the extensive facility.
I'm pretty sure the owner added that tiki statue (or whatever it is) after AT&T sold it.
Al and Bernhard walking up the stairs.
Jim working a 9cm contact.
Behind the antenna waveguides, amps, LNA/LNB, transverters, etc.
Color corrected shot.
A light shines down the waveguides. Wicked.
Equipment securely strapped down. The dish antenna room moves around us, so it better be held down good.
A little bit of dish, a little bit of that...
The surrounding valley.
Surrounding valley taken from steering deck. There's the radome shed.
More behind dish antenna room.
Al watches as Bernhard operates 9cm CW.
Love that ancient straight key. Bernhard broke it, BTW. ;-)
Kevin and Jim try to fix a broken transverter on the lower part of the 9cm band.
Al working an EME station.
More of behind the dish room.
More dish + facility. That place is HUGE.
Me doing a 9cm SSB test.
Me calling 9cm SSB CQ. Of course, nobody answered. Few people have a 32m dish. We were even able to do 9cm FM with some success!
Al looks over a 9cm transverter while Bernhard operates 9cm CW.
Undershot of behind the dish.
Group photo time!
Can someone say, "New QSL Card!"
