EME contact

Saturday, moonrise. I had noticed Sam RN6BN, he of the 32 long yagi's, on the chat and with a full moon he was going to be busy with digital EME. Sure enough, moon comes up lines on the chat map start streaming out of KN95 like a spring spider. I tuned to 144137 and heard the JT65 tune playing, wow! I called him on SSB we exchanged reports easily and he peaked at S8 on my meter, fantastic. Very exciting, heart racing, must do more EME. Only one contact in the log but an enjoyable evening.
