    Lance Collister, W7GJ, has had a fascination with VHF, six and two meters, for over fifty years, when he had a Heathkit Twoer and a three element yagi. Now Lance travels to the far corners of the Earth with his Elecraft KX3 to bounce his six meter signal off of the moon. Lance tells us how he does it in his conversation with Eric, 4Z1UG, on QSO Today.

    I have held Lance/W7GJ in high regard for several years. He is a great example of "You Can Do It" in amateur radio today. He has documented his experiences over the years which have been a great source of learning for me. He is one of the reasons why I finally jumped into EME this year. Great show.

    I like Lance as well. However, he does not bounce signals
    off the moon. As a demonstration of his skills, he has a
    high power 6M repeater on the moon.

    6 meter eme is not for the faint of heart! Big antennas, big H frames... I won't attempt it! Horizon contacts yes but single yagi!
