VE2ZAZ-First EME Radio Contact with HB9Q. Post 1688.

The thrill of discovery awaits those radio amateurs willing to try something new.  In this video, VE2ZAZ documents his first EME (Moonbounce) contact with HB9Q.  A comparison between the two stations is fascinating.  While HB9Q's station is quite impressive (50-foot/15 meter dish running about 1 kw of power), VE2ZAZ's equipment is much simpler--a 13-element yagi cut for 432 MHz running around 80 watts.  With a little ingenuity, you can get on EME with modest equipment and a stable digital mode such as JT65B. That's the mode HB9Q and VE2ZAZ used in this video.
