The Eimac EME notes

I don’t know how long ago these were published but when I started EME (1983) it was one of the only information resources regarding EME. Another big sources was the Dutch DX-press / VHF-UHF Bulletin magazine. This was written by PA0BN. Henk Ripet NL314 continued to publish EME information a little bit later.

Nevertheless these Eimac letters were available on request and free of charge. However rather old, some information is so very basic that is will never expire. The construction ideas published stay very valid.

Some of the “dinosaurs” around are pictured in these EME notes. Truly the big pioneers in EME.

These bulletins were returned to me after a “many” years loan.

Were needed I will give a brief description.

These are all the issues I have!
