Re: Lunar Short Wave echo experiment lookingfor Listen er reports



Your absolutely correct Dave. I missed the fact that the U.S. Naval Observatory page was giving me local time instead of UTC that I was thinking. Damn, now I better get the coffee pot ready. Looks like it will be a late night. To keep this post in line with satellites, if this experiment proves successful does it mean it's possible we could have a bird circling the moon with say a mode K transponder ? :-))

Thanks for the correction Dave... Keith

I think you are confusing time zones.  Here in Maryland, the moon  
sets Saturday morning at 4:54am EST, and the experiment is midnight  
to 2am. For me, the moon will be between 50 and  28 degrees elevation  
during the experiment.
