Hi Rick, WA4NVM

As far I remember the 432-20T should be a 10 + 10 elements crossed yagi.
Do you remember if your antenna is connected for RHCP or LHCP ?

Since Arecibo transmit a RHCP toward the moon and the moon reflects
back a LHCP wave if you was able to copy the CW signal then your antenna
should be LHCP.

Please let us know if possible.
