In the year since The SETI League's W2ETI 1296 MHz EME beacon went online,
we have received reception reports from the Arecibo Radio Observatory in
Puerto Rico, the Sir Bernard Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank UK, an
undocumented "I heard you" from a ham in Oklahoma, and some very detailed
reports and screen dumps from member Tom Hutter, who is close enough to the
transmitter to receive both the direct wave and the lunar echo. That's a
good start, but where are all the reports from the hundreds of 1296
moonbouncers all over the world?
As we continue to upgrade our moonbounce beacon facilities, The SETI
League would find reception reports of great value. If you try to hear the
beacon, and fail, that information would be useful to us as well. Details
about the beacon may be found at <http://www.setileague.org/eme>. There is
an email link on the "Latest News" page linked from there, to which your
reports can be directed. Or, simply drop me an email, indicating your
location, date and time of reception, and a signal report. Feel free to
attach screen dumps or DSP files in your emails to me (though attachments
should NEVER be sent through a SETI League email list).
To heat things up a bit, we will shortly be adding random strings of Morse
code characters to our EME transmissions. Each string will be associated
with a known (to us) transmit power level. Awards to those of you
demonstrating reception of various weak EME signals. Watch the website for
the formal announcement, shortly.
Please feel free to forward this email on to anyone you know with 1296 MHz
moonbounce capability, whether a SETI League member or not.
