Lunar repeater?

Gimme a break!   Arne Coro, CO2KK, worked KB8RQ and W5UN off the moon on 2m
with 22 watts and two 5-element Yagis, and that was using CW.  Now we have
JT44.  There is no need whatever for a lunar repeater.  It's a concept
invented in the 1960s by Nick Marshall, and if Nick were around today he
would have re-thunk it.  If you want to work EME, go work EME.
