Echoes from the Moon


This is a picture taken with the "Echo mode" of WSJT when the Moon already was below the optimal path of the old 4x6 elements array (extimated around 4 of elevation). The echo was clearly audible even if the antennas were beaming in a particulary noisy zone, between 100 and 160, where I calculated a noise 4,5 db higher than normal. When it's possible I try to avoid EME skeds when my Moon is inside the previous range. Here, at the bottom of the page, you can see the strongest echo I ever received from the Moon running the new array 4x7 elements.
