"Now, after the first couple hundred people make it there and back safely, and there's a moon colony to visit...and someone to put up BIG antennas pointed at the Earth....and a place to set up ham radio....and the moon count as another 'radio country' bet, I'd want to be the first ham to go there and transmit from there. you'd have pile ups of stations trying to make contacts with you that would be 'out of this world'.......You'd need a month and about 20 other hams to handle all the contacts.

Right now the best ham radio operators can do is bounce signals off the moon, and that isn't all that easy....and work other stations bouncing signals off the moon. Takes a lot of work to set up such a station (and money , too)." tele


Heh heh heh! I knew you'd know how to do it! If anyone could figure out about sending signals from the moon you could!

Tele is our resident expert when it comes to all things having to do with communications technology. Seriously.
