Steve you can add my witness of the Lunar orbiter signal on S-band 
received on a ten foot comm dish that my supervisor with JPL set up 
in his yard using a diode mixer and a microwave signal generator for 
LO.  The signal exhibited expected Doppler shift and every 20-minutes 
or so it dropped out (occulted by the Moon as the orbiter orbited 
behind).  This was not Apollo-11 but one of the other missions 
afterward, to memory (long time ago - 1971).  We both worked at 
Goldstone tracking facility back then.  We only detected the carrier 
since the dish was insufficient size for recovering the modulated signal.
