Geert Jan de Groot PE1HZG reports  that radio amateurs will be using the PI9CAM Dwingeloo 25 meter dish during Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) this weekend. On the AMSAT-BB he writes:

In the Netherlands, the CAMRAS foundation took over the large radio telescope of Dwingeloo. This year during upcoming JOTA weekend, several stations will try to make QSO’s using QRP EME via the moon using WSJT and the telescope (accessible via WebSDR) as Receiver With Large Ears.

Information, in Dutch alas, can be found at

You should be able to listen in using the same WebSDR station.

Please join me to congratulate the volunteers of CAMRAS, and especially
Frans PE1RXJ, for organizing and facilitating this impressive feat.
