The subject line is ignored. Enter the following text in the body of your message: 

· From the ARRL's World Wide Web home page, at 

1. Object: Two-way communications via the earth-moon-earth path on any authorized 
amateur frequency above 50 MHz. 

2. Date and Contest Period: Two full weekend 48-hour periods (0000 UTC on Saturday 
through 2359 UTC Sunday). The 2002 dates will be the weekends of October 26-27, 2002 
and November 23-24, 2002. 

3. Entry Categories: 

3.1. Single Operator: One person performs all operating and logging functions, equipment 
adjustment and antenna alignment. 

3.1.1. Multiband. 

3.1.2. Single Band: Single-band entries on 50, 144, 222, 432, 902 and 1296-and-up 
categories will be recognized in awards offered. Contacts may be made on any and 
all bands without jeopardizing single-band entry status. Such additional contacts 
are encouraged and should be reported. Also see Rule 8, Awards. 

3.2. Multi-operator: Two or more persons participate; includes neighboring amateurs 
within one call area, but with EME facilities for different bands on different team 
members' premises, as long as no two are more than 50 km (30 miles) apart. Multi-operator 
neighborhood groups may use the same call signs at each location if permissible under 
national licensing rules and regulations. If not permissible, separate call signs may 
be used for the multi-operator neighborhood entry. When operating under this neighborhood 
provision, all logs must be submitted together in a single envelope or e-mail with a 
single summary sheet showing the combined operation, designating the principal call sign 
for the entry. All multi-operator call signs will be shown in the results. 

3.3. Commercial equipment: Stations using equipment that is not amateur (such as a dish 
antenna for lab equipment owned by an institution or government agency) will have their 
scores listed separately. 

3.4. Only one log may be submitted per call sign. 

4. Exchange: For a valid contact to occur, each station must send and receive both call 
signs and a signal report in any mutually understood format, plus a complete acknowledgment 
of the calls and report. Partial or incomplete QSOs should be indicated on your log, but 
not counted for contest credit. Stations may be worked once per band for credit. 

5. Scoring: 

5.1. QSO Points: Count 100 points for each complete EME contact. 

5.2. Multiplier: Each US and Canadian call area, plus each DXCC entity (not US/Canada) 
worked via EME on each band. 

5.3. Final Score: Multiply QSO points by sum of multipliers worked on each band for your 
final score. 

6. Miscellaneous: 

6.1. Fixed or portable operation is permitted. Stations operating outside traditional 
call areas must indicate so, identifying the call area of the operating site (such as 
W1AW/4 operating in Florida). 

6.2. Contacts may be on CW or SSB. Only one signal per band is permitted. 

6.3. A transmitter, receiver or antenna used to contact one or more stations 
under one call sign may not be used subsequently under any other call sign 
during the contest. An exception is made for family stations where more than 
one call has been issued, and then only if the second call sign is used by a 
different operator. 

6.4. There is no specified minimum terrestrial distance for contacts, but all 
communications must be copied over the moonbounce path, regardless of how strong 
(or weak) a nearby station's terrestrial signal may be. 

7. Reporting: Entries must be postmarked no later than December 24, 2002 (30 days 
after the contest) and must include complete log data as well as a complete 
summary sheet. Official forms are available in the ARRL Website 
( or with a self-addressed stamped envelope request 
to the Contest Branch. Your summary sheet should show a band-by-band breakdown of 
QSOs and multipliers, and include details of your station setup and a photo.

entry categories: single operator multiband; single operator single band (separate 
awards for each band); and multioperator. 

8.2. Additional awards will be issued where significant achievement or competition 
is evident. In addition, each station that successfully completes at least one EME 
contact during the contest period will receive a certificate commemorating that 

9. Other: See "General Rules for All ARRL Contests" in November 2001 QST.

Subj:    K7XQ activity report

From: (K9SLQ Wayne)
To: (Moon Net)
CC: (K1RQG  Joe)

EME  Hot Dogs
K1RQG Newsletter
I want to publicly commend K7XQ  Jeff for his fine activity report
posting.  I really enjoyed reading the nuts and bolts about what he was
up to.  In our recent work with him I noticed an aggressiveness not
easily found recently.   Thinking this guy has to be a kid, I looked up
info on and sure enough he is the same age as my daughter.  Gee
where is a guy like this when you need them,  I could of had an EME’er
for a son-in-law.  HI HI   
To increase activity awareness it has also been brought to my attention
recently that in addition to Moon-Net postings of activity, the
information should also be sent to Joe K1RQG to be
included in his EME 432 and Above 14.345 Mhz Net Newsletter.  I would
like to encourage all stations to post more activity reports both
Moon-Net and with K1RQG.  Many stations use the net news letter as their
only source for activity reports.
OH,  one other thing while I have your attention.  After almost a year
to the day I have finally got the Antenna system where I want it.
(Working) 70cm  knock knock   This means I am available 90 % of the time
for skeds,  any time 24 Seven.
Repeat customers always welcome and any sked information or activity
plans with other stations sent directly to me via email is appreciated.
