Signals were weaker than expected. Signals had a very strong QSB, being perfectly readable for few seconds every minute or so. We made a few calls, but obviously, no answer.
Fortunately KP4AO team did some wideband recordings using a SDR receiver, and they put them on the Internet. After downloading the huge files (1GB each) and synchronize them with out own recordings, we were able to localize the file recorded when we was calling KP4AO.
The question was: Will we find our calls in the recording? After almost a week looking deep into the file using SpectraVue, we were able to localize our calls, received by the big dish:
After this small (but very exciting) step, I'm sure we will improve our small station to do real two way EME with some big gun soon.
