R: Moon



Hi Bill,

I think that using that dish you cannot receive  the noise from the moon.
because the gain of it is too small.

Probably you are receiving withe noise from another side,probably a
terrestrial noise.

Try again please with the moon when it is in a  very different AZ and EL

How many dB of noise do you receive from the sun  at 2400 MHz ?

For example using 10 GHz and a 5 meters dish on EME the noise received from
the moon is barely only 3 dB and this noise is used to track the moon
