Amateur Radio at the Deep Space Exploration Society

The DSES amateur radio club call sign is K0PRT (PRT for Plishner Radio Telescope).  In addition to our radio astronomy work, we plan to use our 60 foot radio dish for ham radio, include EME moon bounce and tropospheric scatter. Also, we operate on the amateur high frequency (HF) bands.  We have on the Haswell site a multi-band folded dipole antenna, as well as dipoles for 80 and 160 meters, and a 6 meter 3-element yagi.  We operate for specific projects, as well as casually for fun.  We do special events.  And sometimes we participate in contests too.

We periodically upload our logs to ARRL Logbook of the World and eQSL.  We also respond to traditional QSL cards by mail.  If you contact us on the air and would like to receive a QSL card, please send a Stamped Self-Addressed (SASE) envelope, one that can hold a 4 inch x 6 inch card, to our new address below.  Please include your QSL card if you have one, or the QSO information for verifying the contact.
