Moonbounce Operations Scheduled from Bonaire, Curacao

Operators Peter PJ4NX, Johan PA3FPQ, Jurgen PE1LWT and René PE1L will be active from the island of Bonaire (SA-006, WLOTA L1279) as PJ4X on 144 MHz moonbounce between April 7-11th. The locator is FK52ud.

It was announced this past weekend (by popular demand), the PJ4X team will also be setting up a horizon-only 6 meter EME operation from PJ4-land for the first time ever. PJ4X will be operating on both moonrise and moonset when their moon is below 20 degrees elevation providing them with ground gain lobes. 

Experienced 6 meter EME operators know that these ground gain lobes can make your horizon-only antenna perform like a four-yagi array.
