EME

    Earth-Moon-Earth communication

    13

    EME, or Earth-Moon-Earth communication, involves establishing contact with a distant station by directing antennas towards the Moon. The signal travels through space, reaches the Moon, reflects off its surface, and returns to Earth. EME operators are highly respected in the ham radio community due to the technical challenges they overcome. They utilize high-gain antenna systems, rotors, powerful transmitters, preamplifiers, etc., operating on VHF bands and higher frequencies from 50 MHz to 10.5 GHz. To enhance success rates, EME QSOs are often conducted using CW (Continuous Wave) mode.
