Moon Bounce on a Dipole

On Saturday the 8th of September, the Essex Dx Group achieved a world first by making a moonbounce EME contact using nothing more than a dipole.

The contact on 432 mhz was with super station DL7APV Bernd's 128x11 element yagi array. The antenna was an DG7YBN 'Blade' dipole. This was in fact the GTV2 2 element yagi with its reflector taken out leaving just its dipole
