To the Moon!

Please join LARC this Thursday, April 8, at 7:00 pm. Gray Faulk, WX4F, will present on Moonbounce, also called EME, Earth-Moon-Earth. This mode uses microwave, VHF and UHF frequencies to communicate with others by bouncing signals off the moon. It is a rare opportunity to hear and talk to someone active in moonbounce.
