EME (“Moonbounce”) Training Sessions

On Saturday mornings, starting at 9 AM on July 6, hands-on training will be available for club members interested in learning the capabilities of our Earth-Moon-Earth (EME) station.

You can examine and ask questions about all the important equipment, both hardware and software. We’ll do some simple radio astronomy by pointing the 3 m dish at the Sun to measure solar radio noise and check antenna pointing.  Then we’ll point at the Moon, transmit the message “CQ W2ZQ FN20”, and proceed to make EME contacts with stations throughout Europe and the Americas.

Earth-Moon-Earth EME Moonbounce communication is a very fascinating aspect of amateur radio so come join the fun and learn a little bit more about this ever-growing hobby.
