Recently, tens of #amsat ops made their 1st #moonbounce QSO. The thrill of #EME with a biggun creates an illusion of similarity to other modes. EME is different. How small a station you can hear? This thread elaborates on accurate predictions. No magic, only Physics! #hamradio
2/10 #EME is the only field in #hamradio that allows reliable predictions of station sizes that one can work. No smaller station beyond this prediction can be contacted under any conditions! You cannot bend the theory. The link budget can be expressed in Signal-to-Noise ratio-SNR
3/10 SNR represents the ratio of System Gain to Noise Temperature. #WSJTX in Q65 computes SNR in the bandwidth B=2500 Hz. That is the report that you exchange with each other. We want to maximise it by increasing the numerator and decreasing the denominator

This is a simplified guide describing a bare minimum (!) for #EME operation of WSJT-X in Q65-60B on 432 MHz. A few settings are TRX-specific. Consult to your rig's manual for those

Step 1: Download stable version of WSJT-X at

#amsat #moonbounce #hamradio
Step 2: Install WSJT-X and open Settings
1) Fill in "My Call" and "My Grid"
2) Tick "Enable VHF and Microwave submodes"
3) Tick "Decode after EME Delay"
Step 3: Navigate to Radio tab
1) Choose your rig model
2) Choose your serial port and baud rate
3) Choose CAT as PTT
4) Mode and split operation depends on your rig. A minimum non-destructive set: Non and Fake it, respectively
You test CAT by a button

Bernd DL7APV asked me to QSP to the #AMSAT community that he will QRV this coming Thu, Sat, Sun and listen especially for #satellite setups. Use your chance to make your first ever #EME QSO - biggest challenge in #AmateurRadio 🌗

See how this can be done⬇️

If you work via #GreenCube, try #EME with big guns. I promise, you will be amazed! As a proof of concept, I made a quick #moonbounce QSO with DL7APV with just a Yaesu FT-818, 40W, 1dB NF LNA and 15 el Diamond antenna held by hand! Easy QSO. Read on🧵

2/9 There are a number of extremely capable #EME stations on 70cm: DL7APV, HB9Q, NC1I. If you are enjoying decode rates above 80% on #GreenCube, don't wait and try #EME. You will likely complete your first QSO over the Moon faster than on the congested #IO117

3/9 I used my portable #Greencube set: Yaesu FT-818ND - 40W amp / 1dB NF preamp - Diamond A430S15 14.8dBi on wooden extension, held by hand and pointed visually. With a low NF frontend you can go with a 7el Arrow

[1/n] Today I'm sharing the details of a research done by @vaber_b, @legezo, Ilya Borisov and myself on a UEFI firmware implant found in the wild, dubbed #MoonBounce. We assess that this formerly unknown threat is the work of the infamous #APT41. A 🧵…
[2/n] During investigation of anomalous UEFI level behaviour in our telemetry, we found a tampered CORE_DXE module, originally used, among other tasks, to bootstrap system startup through initialization of externally callable routines (Boot Services, Runtime Services etc.)
[3/n] The attackers appended malicious pieces of shellcode and a kernel-mode driver into a newly created section within the CORE_DXE image and caused the invokation of the former through inline hooks set in several Boot Services routines.
