picture of the antenna 70cm and 23cm EME signals recorded using the 25 m dish in Dwingeloo.

Currently, there is no live EME reception. Instead, we're playing a recording made during the EME activation of the 300m Arecibo dish during the Echoes of Apollo project. This recording was made on April 17, 2010, around 19:00 UTC, on 70 cm.

We're also playing a recording made during the 2009 EoA project. This recording (made on 23 cm) includes a QSO between PI9CAM (that's the callsign we use at the Dwingeloo dish when transmitting) and HB9MOON, around 1296.040 MHz.

6m receiver for meteor echoes

The 6 m band receiver uses a 3 element yagi antenna bearing south, 10 m above ground in the radio quiet zone near the radio telescope. Its main aim is to listen for meteor echoes from the beacons at Dourbes and Ypres in Belgium.

Next live EME operation: JOTA weekend on October 14-16, 2016. We hope to have the dish running on Friday (Oct. 14) and Saturday (Oct. 15), both days from about 17:00 UTC (moonrise) till 01:00 UTC (which is 3am local time) early next UTC day. The main aim is to let scouting stations have a go at EME, but of course others users are also welcome.
