ONOEME is a moon bounce beacon transmitting 1296.000 MHz.

For background information here is the website -

TX freq is GPSDO and very accurate.   Transmit power is nearly 500w
and the signal reflected back from the moon is LHCP.

The beacon is on nearly continuously when the moon is visible.  Signal
mode is CW ID and Clean Carrier.

It is possible to see this signal with a preamp - Funcube Dongle and a
single yagi with linear polarization.

Bottom line - if you can detect (or hear) this beacon - you will have
no problem receiving L-band signals from any satellite in Space.
