The ON0EME moonbeacon is active since the 31st of March 2012. The beacon antenna tracks the moon when above 10° of elevation and transmits a high power signal direction to the moon.


The signal is bounced off the moon and can be received with modest receive antennas. The smallest station reported is from Carlos, CS5RAD using a 1,35m parabolic reflector.


We hope to encourage other radio amateurs to attempt receiving the signals and improve their equipment.


On this website you will find all information about the 1296 MHz moonbeacon.
