Mhz E.M.E. Antenna
Amateur-Radio Station iK8RIH
op. Alberto, QTH Trebisacce (CS)
Italy - Zone 15
Radio-active from 1,8 to 432
Mhz since 1982
and newcomer in Earth-Moon-Earth on 144
(Italian), in which Alberto describes his experiences
If your 2
meter station outputs 1500 watts or more into a 21dBi (or
more) antenna array, if your receiver front-end has
reasonably low noise and you have a D.S.P.
audio filter , you may be able to work ik8rih
via 2 meter moon-bounce.
Tune to 144,125
CW and point your
antenna at the moon when I must be able to see the moon
from Italy. I call "CQ" there regularly
whenever E.M.E. conditions are favorable.
A simple Moon Tracking
Software can help you determine the best
operating dates and times.
Check into the VHF-Net, Saturdays & Sundays on
14.345 Mhz,beginning around 1700 UCT to arrange a
schedule.....or write to: [email protected]
