Arecibo Moon Bounce Update

Kevin-KW4B and I attemped to hear the moon bounce signal from the Arecibo station today with no luck.  Turns out they had an amplifier failure and are in the process of repairing it now.  Should be ready for tomorrow.  They did make almost 100 contacts using low power (50 watts) so that's good.  They are streaming a live feed from the event at

Tomorrow's window is from 1340 to 1620 local.  We'll be meeting up at our club station tomorrow at the Southside Fire Station to give it another try.
