50W to a dipole via the moon. Have a look at this:
Wow! What an effort. Berne deserves a lot
of credit for building a monster like that. Hope it works as
good as he expected. Cheers!

That statement is
unfair. Bernd has put a lot of effort into the
project. Take your blinkers off and read the story
including the performance data. What he has achieved
is remarkable and he helps to promote 432MHz EME.
Large EME stations like Bernd’s really increase
Lots of homebrew and

For some people cocaine is the signal that they
have too much money. I think this guy has a quite
different and far more respectable signal that he
has too much money - and time - on his hands. That
must have taken awhile to get phased in and fed
properly. I wonder if he really gets the 21 dB extra
gain that should give him over a single beam. (18 dB
would mean he has a lot of patience and very low
loss feed lines across the array.)
Has he started the second one so he can use SDR
techniques as he rotates them together for another 3
dB of gain.

counting one. Also looks like the whole array
rotated both horizontally and azimuth.
image, Larry. Aren’t there 10 yagis,
8 on top and 2 on the bottom? And it
appears the two on the bottom might be
oriented with the elements in the
vertical plane, as opposed to
horizontal like the top yagis.
rotatable is better!

You could try the Antennenland

thanks to Brexshit.
