I just started to explore MS and EME after a friend of mine, EA1FAQ, told me how much fun is is to do. My first contact was with F9ARR on 13 september 2011 and it us not much time to complete the qso.

The second qso was with IZ2SVA on 15 september and a over more then 1600km without pre amp on this site.
This is my set up: Icom IC-7400 70 watt output and a 9 elements GB yagi at 160m ASL.
So you see with a simple set up you can make MS qso's, now waiting for my first EME.
Look here for a MS qso from EA1RJ, Ricardo in Valldolid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFpPRNjYz3s&feature=player_detailpage
