on 10 GHz
I've been using my Periscope
Antenna system on 10 GHz. Since my QTH is surrounded by trees,
I do best on rain and snow scatter.
The flyswatter reflector, which rotates and tilts, is fed by a dish on the ground directly under it.
The periscope antenna has worked great for rainscatter since the June 1998 VHF Contest. I worked four grids on 10 GHz during that contest, best DX >130 miles, with heavy rain. Since then, I have made many contacts, and worked two additional grids.
Here are some new sound clips of AF1T on CW and SSB.
WA1MBA has written a good explanation of rainscatter.

January VHF contest:
10 GHz Rain scatter recordings from 9 March 1997
Let me know how they sound!
DSP guys - can you find a way to improve copy?
