Escape the noise!
« on: December 07, 2018, 0155 UTC »
Finally, somewhere I can go to get away from the neighborhood buzzies and interfering devices!

The lunar far side always faces away from Earth, so it's is free from interference from our planet's ionosphere, human-made radio frequencies and auroral radiation noise. Solar radio emission is also blocked during the lunar night.


I bet 43 and 48 meters are hopping with pirate activity up there.
Just somebody with a radio, a computer and a pair of headphones...

Just ask some of George Noory's guests. They'll tell you all about radio on the dark side of the Moon.

Where do you think Dr. Tornado went? The Reptilians gave him his own network.

True, with the exception of the ongoing mining of cheese and the sound effect-purposed manual cash register Pink Floyd left behind in 1973. I think that's why Pink Floyd recorded the album there by that title.
