Re: Voice QSO at 1819

If FCC rules state 1.5 kW erp maximum how do you manage Moon Bounce etc.?

A friend of mine here in Australia has 25W input at 10.368 GHz into a 3.7 m
parabolic dish which has 57db of gain (=12.5MW) which is allowed by the ACA
and the reflected signals (CW) are hard to hear in the noise!
