Forget this boring moonbounce stuff--I want to know more about this other strange phenomenon you've reported, where you get to do fun ham stuff while the XYL does the yard work! I don't think I've ever heard of such a thing before!
Outstanding accomplishment, OM!!

I tried the same thing with one of my FO432 11 el beams handheld with a bare FT817 this afternoon. This was right after getting home from the VHF Conference in Connecticut. I could hear KP4AO very well on JT65 right out of the speaker. My XYL heard the tones 25 meters away while she was raking leaves in the yard. I handheld the antenna...
