Keep in mind that any ham radio transponder on the moon will not be an "easy
sat". You will need an EME class station to work it.
If we build a lunar transponder, we can expect to see many, many postings on
Amsat-BB about how Amsat only cares about elite hams and is not interested in
building satellites for the common ham.
I'm not saying it wouldn't be fun to have a transponder on the moon, and we in
the USA might even be able to help you build it if they get ITAR fixed in
time, but we better put on the flame proof trousers when we announce the
project to the masses.
