Dave W9DCO (left) gave a talk about contacts he has made using Earth-Moon-Earth communication,
also known as
moon bounce. He explained EME is a radio communications technique
which relies on the propagation of radio waves from an
Earth-based transmitter
directed via reflection from the surface of the
Moon back to an Earth-based receiver.
