    This is a good excuse for me to buy that 32' extension ladder. I wonder if that will help....

    I'm thinking a long ditch along the appropriate azimuth that deepens and widens to accommodate the expanding beamwidth. Borrow Musk's Boring Company machine for a few days....:)

    Seriously, as pointed out up-thread, this was a spectacular opportunity for the ham community and we are extremely fortunate AMSAT-DL et. al. were able to accomplish what they have done. I'm hoping that this successful example spurs progress in other regions. If nothing else, it will stimulate a lot of ideas and gear for building 2.4/10GHz stations.

    I have a vehicle for you.


    This is from the wonderful Jacques Littlefield tank collection when he was still alive. I was lucky enough to have visited it a couple of times when he had an open house for his neighbors in Portola Valley (as a guest of my friend that lives up there).

    Many more photos on my website. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

    Looks like that thing could warm up the ionosphere for us !
    Then we could just talk to Europe via normal ionospheric propagation....grin.
