K2GXT, RIT's Amateur Radio Club, will be once again attempting to bounce a radio signal off of the Moon! Using a powerful antenna, careful aiming, and special signal encoding, we hope to be able to send a message from RIT to a remote location via the moon. Certain frequencies of radio waves can pass through the atmosphere unaffected, and the Moon acts as a distant reflector. By encoding a digital message onto our signal, data can be passed between any two points that can see the moon. This project takes advantage of advancements in antenna construction and digital signal processing to demonstrate the interesting and fun possibilities of amateur radio.
