Project Moonbounce

Radio Communication over a distance of at least 2 Light Seconds using the Moon as reflector. Anyone interested in actually talking to him/herself? We can do that - you're welcome.


Project Moonbounce's aim is to provide the visitors of 2011's Chaos Communication Camp some interesting insights into Amateur Radion in general and into one of its most spectacular varieties in particular. Earth-Moon-Earth (EME, Moonbounce) radio communication directly on the campsite and for everyones amazement. Since the camp's language is mostly english due to the very international audience, this site is as well.

Project Moonbounce is part of Metalab's Leiwandville 3.0 and provided by the people of MetaFunk in cooperation with Amateur Radio operators from all over the world - tnx, you know who you are!
