Subj: [Moon-net] UHF:My first echo on 47 GHz July 24 2004
Date: 7/25/04 4:51:21 AM Eastern Daylight Time
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Sergei RW3BP)
Yesterday I got my first echo on 47 GHz. I started test at 15.40 UTC when
the moon came to limited sector of my dish (moon az 192.0 el 23.6). Very
soon I found my echo (thanks to F2TU - his EME Doppler programm is working
fine). Echo was weak but visible on Spectran as a cloud one second long and
300 Hz wide. Moon noise was 0.4 dB and falled to 0.2 dB at 18 degrees of
elevation when I lost my echo and then lost the moon. Signal was highly
diffused by doppler smear and atmosphere turbulence. It was hot and very
Dish - 2.4m offset partially illuminated by W2IMU horn (equal to 1.8m)
Rx - 12dB LNA + OE9PMJ filter + shottky diode mixer. NF 4.8 dB
Tx - TWT , output power more then 100W
