The San Bernardino Microwave Society has made arrangements with the Owens Valley Radio Observatory to use their 40 meter dish for Amateur Radio EME. This unique arrangement has allowed members of SBMS to construct and install transverters for 1296 and 10,368 MHz on the dish.
The project benefits both organizations in that radio amateurs have a truly unique experience in operating EME with a World Class EME station, and allows OVRO to augment their current educational outreach program through ham radio.
