> This coming weekend, October 17-19, is the 57th annual Jamboree on the Air,

A point of trivia, related to AMSAT as it is using OSCAR zero:

You may know that in the Netherlands, the CAMRAS foundation took over
the large telescope of Dwingeloo. This year during upcoming JOTA weekend,
several stations will try to make QSO's using QRP EME via the moon 
using WSJT and the telescope (accessible via WebSDR) as 
Receiver With Large Ears.

Information, in Dutch alas, can be found at

You should be able to listen in using the same WebSDR station.

Please join me to congratulate the volunteers of CAMRAS, and especially
Frans PE1RXJ, for organizing and facilitating this impressive feat.

Unfortunately, I'm too busy with other aspects of JOTA but I wish the
stations doing this experiment / demonstration the best of luck!

Geert Jan
