Earth Moon Earth communication is a very demanding challenging and exciting way of making contacts to other amateur radio stations all over the world.

Using the moon as a passive reflector gives the possibility to work stations all over the world. This page is aiming at EME interest for 432 MHz and above frequency's. In making EME contacts the antenna and equipment in use most have very high performance. Large antenna arrays or large dish antenna's are in use to get enough antenna gain to overcome the total loss involved in an EME contact. 

This picture gives a real presentation on the distance between the earth and the moon.

Time at PA0EHG

I started EME on 10 GHz because I was able to get a 3 mtr Andrew dish and a TWT with high power for this band

My First EME QSO was on 15 September 2001 working W6HD

More information on the equipment and my dish
