OMARC (the Ocean Monmouth Amateur Radio Club, Inc.) is celebrating the 70th anniversary of Project Diana, the first EME from North America.

On 10 January, 1946, the first intentional radar echo location of the Moon (also referred to as EME or Earth – Moon - Earth) took place. The event is known as Project Diana. It is widely regarded as the first shot fired in the Space Race between the United States and the former USSR.

During the event, OMARC will be receiving visors at the N2MO station at InfoAge, as well as operating a special event station on HF.

The TLM-18 Reactivation team, consisting of volunteers from InfoAge, OMARC, and Princeton University  will attempt an EME transmission on Sunday, 10 January, 2016,  using the 23CM feed on the TLM-18 antenna.

The N2MO station is co-located with the TLM-18 antenna system.. The 60 foot (18.2 M) TLM-18 antenna was used as a ground station for the TIROS I and II weather satellite missions,  Calibration station as part of Project Vanguard, and subsequently demilitarized by the US Army prior to the site transitioning to Wall Township (NJ) for adaptive re-use.

Additional Information will be posted at http://www.n2mo.org and here on eHam as it becomes available.

Amazing work! I recently took the kids to enjoy the historic site at InfoAge for the first time, and was lucky enough to meet some of you there. Thank you for taking the time to show us around and keep up the great work. 73

EME contacts will receive a serialized QSO card.   The 70th Anniversary QSO card is based on the 1959 EME QSL card by Bernard Christenson, W2KJR (sk)

Its a wrap!
The logs are in, the equipment put away, and the planning for the next event is already under way.
