We will be trying to access the birds but I won't promise anything as
the past few years have not met with great success at another FD site.
Plus we will give a 'try' at 23cm EME this year. Only using a 5 foot
dish with a three element WA5VJB pc board yagi <
http://www.wa5vjb.com/pcb-pdfs/Yagi900.pdf > as the feed. I know this
is NOT optimal for this but all we want do do is really pick up the
signal from the Echo of Apollo < http://echoesofapollo.com/ > event
this weekend and this is what I have available. Last I heard they are
'planning' on using 1296.1MHz.
Will be operating as W8UM from Ann Arbor, MI (EN82dh) next to Domino's
