2312 JT65c VK7MO -29/R-24... started at 2.5 deg elevation at my end, and 50% of the dish blocked by his house at Rex's end. Rex continued sending CQ until 0010, at which point I lost him... his signal peaked at -19 with me as the Moon was rising, unfortunately no takers.

  VK7MO - Rex's shot at the Moon during our QSO. The Moon is setting to the left.   G4CCH - My shot at AZ 101 EL 8.5 deg, about 40 minutes after our QSO. The Moon is rising from the left, and in the clear above the houses and street lights
