UK amateur hears Jade Rabbit on the Moon

| February 14, 2014

Beijing’s Jade Rabbit lunar rover had been thought to be dead but its radio signal on 8.4GHz was received by radio amateur Paul Marsh, M0EYT on 12 February. This is a remarkable achievement as the relatively low-power transmitter was never intended to be received by amateurs on Earth. News outlets including CNN have reported on Paul’s feat. Pictures and the full story can be found via the AMSAT UK website.
