15th International EME conference

EME, short for Earth Moon Earth communications involves using the Moon as a passive reflector to enable beyond the horizon communications on frequencies where this would not normally be possible. The very small signal levels involved demand that all the station components, antenna, preamplifiers, transmitters and signal processing have to be optimised to achieve the required system performance.
These conferences provide an opportunity for those involved in this challenging, science based aspect of amateur radio to exchange ideas leading to improved techniques in EME communications.
