Uum but if the moonbase is at the south pole then it wont even be line of 
site to the earth for >50% of the time.

Hence this idea of three satellites in elliptical lunar orbit


Or maybe it would be cheaper/simpler just to have a nice big telescopic 
tower to see over the horizon or even some lunar repeaters on nearby 
hilltops which have  been delivered and placed by unmanned rovers which 
would help with base to mobile comms on the lunar surface and have moon<-> 
earth comms capability as well.

Sounds like they really need some ham "experts" to work on these issues:)
