Today in Ham Radio History: Moonbounce

From Frank via the HamRadioHelpGroup mailing list:

Today in 1946, the United States Army Signal Corps at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey successfully conducted Project Diana, bouncing radio waves off the moon and receiving the reflected signals. 65 years later, ham radio operators all over the world conduct moon bounce or EME communications (Earth-Moon-Earth), with relatively inexpensive equipment.
