I think this a First… (see comment below)
Back in October I posted about a monster 15m antenna (read ES5TV’s description here) going up in Estonia. It is composed of eight 5-element monoband Yagis on a 230-foot (70m) tower.
Tonno ES5TV, the lucky owner, pondered at that time whether it might be possible to use such a high-gain antenna to work EME on 15 meters.
With an antenna fixed on the horizon, attempts were restricted to moonrise and moonset only and Tonno’s third attempt was recorded in the video (below).
The only problem with having such a gargantuan 15m antenna is that there’s not likely to be anyone who can reciprocate and offer a traditional EME QSO – but Tonno’s own echoes as received by him are as amazing as a QSO would be.
Check out the video of Tonno receiving his own echoes from the moon:
