Most hams think it takes a big antennas and high power to work Moonbouce.  This short course will show how you can get started will very small antennas and low power – EME is even possible from an apartment balcony from where it has been done many times.  The course will cover all aspects of EME including choice of band, operating modes and procedures, equipment requirements, antennas (inexpensive) and mounting, Moon tracking and polarization, Doppler considerations, system evaluation (Sun and Moon noise) and EME dxpeditions.  Ample time will be allocated for questions and answers.
