If you are a EME beginner, contact a mega-station; I suggest W5UN.  He 
has something like 800 elements total in multi yagis, and 
polarizations.  For beginners, unless you have been doing lots of weak 
signal tropo, that is your best bet for 1st EME contact.   And for 
certain, get on the moon-net mail list.  Good luck.   ~Larry W7IN
