An Unexpected Use for a Cardboard Box: Listening to the Moon

By Roland Turner

At last year's Geekcamp.SG I spoke about amateur satellite communication, my intention to build an automated tracker to simplify the process, and my longer term objective of communicating via the Moon. The tracker is now built and working but, in the best tradition of side-projects spawning their own side-projects, I have since realised that the tracker has direct application to Earth-Moon communication when combined with ...a cardboard box.

I am not making this up.

Come and hear how this insane experiment will work (or, if I am very lucky, did work).
