The N2MO Station occupies a site rich in history:
• On the morning of 10 January, 1946, An experiment was conducted by Lt. Col. John DeWitt, W4ERI, Edwin King Stodola, W2AXO F. Slacker W2DMD, Herbert Kaufman, W2OQU, and Jacob Mofensen. A series of radio signals were transmitted, and in each case, the echo was picked up in exactly 2.5 seconds, the time it takes light to travel to the moon and back. We know this experiment as Project Diana.
• in 1959, the US Army Signal Research and Development Laboratory deployed the TLM-18 telemetry antenna. The 18 Meter dish was used as a ground station supporting the TIROS I and TIROS II satellites. The TLM-18 was used by the US Army until the site was decommissioned in the mid 1970's
InfoAge, OMARC, and our academic partner, Princeton University are restoring the 60' TLM-18 Telemetry antenna system to use for radio astronomy and EME. The project team has restored power to the TLM-18, rebuilt the drive system, and deployed computer controls.
Work continues on deployment of upgraded feed lines, new feed horns, and SDR /digital receivers.
