Satellites and Space in Amateur Radio
#1
Many radio amateurs have traditionally had a deep interest in aviation, astronautics and space sciences. In the immediate pre-WWII era, Dr. Grote Reber W9GFZ invented the science of radio astronomy, which to this day serves as an important source of information about the universe in which we live. And by 1953, Ross Bateman W4AO and William Smith W3GKP were successfully bouncing amateur radio signals off the surface of the Moon.
