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

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfrPwdmmky4. 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.  For the latest Amateur/Ham news and information, please visit these websites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. http://www.arrl.org. http://www.arrl.org/arrl-audio-news (a weekly podcast which is updated each Friday afternoon). https://oahuarrlnews.wordpress.com. https://hamra
