EME System ?
|This system is primarily suited
for EME operation. It helps to :
the moon or any selected radio source with :
- A high accurate (16 bits)
Azimuth/Elevation display (runs also without the interface)
- A complete real time dialogue
with the hardware interface to point your antenna toward the moon
or the selected source with the same accuracy
Manage the traffic procedures
in real time with :
- The DXCC Common window world
map including the moon footprint, the spatial polarization offset,
a complete DXCC database
- The traffic management including
the Doppler shift calculation, the RX/Tx corrected frequencies and
RIG dialogue, the elapsed time during the Rx/Tx sequence, a text grid
to memorize your traffic information (Date, time, freq, call sign,
report…) or skeds
- The brightness sky map with
the sky temperature at the working frequency, the location of the
different radio source (hot and cold), the antenna beam to the sky,
your own radio electrical horizon and some astronomical information
about the moon (range, hour angle, declination…)
Calibrate the station
- The measurements of received
The 2 axes antenna
diagram measurement with an automatic scanning
- The tracking of radio-sources
- The complete calculations
for an EME budget or noise measurement
- The 2 axes angular corrections
Plan the EME activity
to prepare your skeds or traffic period.
system is divided into:
- A new front-end module (launcher)
to manage EME System and launch directly the other modules
- An initialization module (emesetup)
to set the parameters ( callsign, location, serial port, end-stops,
station parameters, frequency...) called by the control module.
- A control module (tracking)
capable of handling an EME station in real time ( Automatic tracking
of sources, traffic periods, Doppler and RIG
dialog, polarization, signal level, common window, sky noise temperature,
Rx/Tx management ...).
- A module (planner)
to plan the EME activity (Moon location, Common window, Doppler, sky
temperature ....) or analyse the EME months
- A module to edit the prefix
and countries DXCC database (dxccedit).
- A module to create an angular
correction file of the antenna system (included to emesetup).
- A module to help the operator
about EME calculation to evaluate the average performance of the EME
- A new hardware interface
between the control software and the EME station (Motors, angles monitoring,
|The software is a 32 bit application
running under MS Windows (from 95 to XP version).
- It needs a free RS232 com
port to connect the interface.
- This version runs on a PC compatible
with Microsoft Windows (95 and up) and VGA or SVGA monitor.
- The new interface
is 100% compatible with the current one.
- It uses numerical inputs
(TTL compatible : 16 bits for Az & El).
- It includes 4 relays ( 2A
max ) to drive azimuth and elevation motors (Up, Down, CW, CCW).
- Moreover it adds
- a new RS 485 interface
to support USD encoders,
- a new analog input
to allow an easy antenna diagram measurement
- a new analog output to
implement speed control option.
- The interface needs a single
12V supply (or 5V without regulator).
- The new PCB (double sided,
plated through holes and silk screen) is available.

EME System read the documation downloadable in the Download
page. If you wish to use
this software, you don't need any card to download it. It is free of
charge and available in the Download page.
Just I will appreciate a short email of information about your station
If you have a special need or remark
about the software, send me an email. EME System is continuously updated
