Dear Jack:
Thank you for your great comments.

Let’s find the problems and find the solutions.
We solved the difficulties for working AO-10 and AO-13. 
The Moon is the Next Generation.

Lets work together to find an affordable solution.
Which band will work the best (assuming limited antenna and power recourses from an Un-manned Moon lander.)
The Moon will not be an “Easy-Sat”, it will be a challenge.  
However, it should be much easier to access than true EME.

Thanks all Miles WF1F MarexMG.org
