Just for the sake of conversation and thinking.  What would the link budget look like for a transponder on the moon.

to bad there cant be an amateur radio payload even a really small one...this probe should be "longer lived" then most as it should have a constant energy source... 

Wonder why the Europeans are thinking of sending Phase 5A to Mars?  It will probably never fly and almost no hams can be a part of that...so well why not send it to L2 in the Earth Moon systems...a halo orbit...
