Re: Repeater on the Moon



Hi Erwin:

RE: "As a certain fictional engineer once put it, "Ye canna change the laws
of physics!"

This "fictional" quote was very appropriate, since "It just wouldn't work"
is also "FICTIONAL".

Like PE1RAH, William pointed out earlier today, with factual, mathematical
data, there is a BIG difference between very weak reflections of EME signals
from the moon's surface, and a signal from a transmitter located on the
moon.

It will work, and we can do it, as long as we do not accept the "impossible"
that the "experts" keep repeating every time this subject comes up.

73,

Woody
