Front cover photo of the huge 6 Meter moonbounce (EME) array of K6QXY.
Interestingly, a few elements are barely visible and the rest invisible.  Is
this the sign of the future for digital images on magazine covers?  Brings
back memories of the high-end audio debates regarding LPs and CDs.  Anyhow,
more details are provided inside on the station and custom M-Squared yagis.
