All,

I was browsing the net and came across an interesting modification to a Tek2000 dish being used for moon bounce experiments by amateur radio astronomy enthusiasts.

He's done a detailed write up which is well worth reading. For those who are curious, the moon will reflect about 20% of the microwave power beamed towards it, which means it is possible to establish a radio link relay for communicating over long distances here on Earth. Unfortunately, the moon is not in geostationary orbit with respect to the Earth, so you need a steerable antenna to track it. Also, unfortunately, due to noise constraints, you can only transmit and receive at very low bit rates if you use 12' antennae.
