Just what it says -- this is the place for any discussions not related to Buying, Selling and Trading ham gear. The discussion must be related to Ham Radio.

OK....here is the question:

On our first moon landing, everyone anxiously waited for Apollo 11 to come around from the dark side of the moon on their first orbit. Communications ceases on the dark side, obviously. So they had to wait for Apollo 11 to come back into "view" before re-establishing communications.

Houston gave Apollo 11 an RS signal report (just like ham ops) when they first checked back in after coming out from the dark side.

What was the signal report given by Houston?

Email sent.

Neat contest.....brought back memories.....
