SOLAR AMPLIFICATION by STIMULATED
The Jupiter Space Station (JSS) Group
(John Bernard - KF4UGB, Steve Foster - N4SZ, Doug Starwalt - KB4FEM) made
their first JSS EME (Earth-Moon-Earth) contacts during the second weekend
of the ARRL EME Contest. On November 14, 1997 at 11:58 pm EST, the
JSS group using the call N4SZ, exchanged data on 1296 MHz with OE9XXI,
an Austrian station. Approximately 12 minutes later, data with station
OE9ERC was successfully exchanged.
OE9XXI won the 1296 MHz Single Operator
division in last year's contest.
The following evening the JSS Station
successfully worked Denmark, OZ4MM, off the moon for a total of 3 QSOs
and 25 stations copied.
The JSS/SASER website carries more details
of our SASER efforts as the moonbounce concludes Phase I of the Project.
