Modern 2 Meter Earth-Moon- Earth(EME) and Weak Signal Operation

EME Communication, also known as moon bounce, has become a popular form of amateur space communication. The concept is simple: the moon is used as a passive reflector for two way communication between two locations on earth. With a total path length of half a million miles, EME may be considered the ultimate DX.  Presentation includes pictures and screenshots from this year’s winning EME contest station K1JT.  Presentation also includes photos of modest stations, links to obtain open source executable software, scheduling sites.
