I am extremely pleased with myself for just having completed my 1st ever EME QSO. The QSO was with Lance W7GJ during my moonset.
The QSO was not easy, since I had terrible wideband pulsing hash noise in the direction of the setting moon. Fortunately with the patience and experience of Lance the QSO was completed. I cannot describe the joy and disbelief when seeing the 1st successful decode of the calls and later the much needed “RO” reply. Signals were pretty much hidden in the noise and were neither visible on the waterfall nor audible at any stage.
This WSJT JT65 is just amazing. Decoded Lance at -27 dB
To think my little signal traveled all the way to the moon was reflected and was copied by someone else some 730,000 km round trip. Simply amazing…..
