    Hello,
    
    I have a question for this group. In the last months most I'm receiving very
    good reflections from the navspasur radar, lake kickapoo USA. (216,980Mhz)
    here in the Netherlands by reflection against the moon.
    http://www.itr-datanet.com/~pe1itr/live/live.html and
    http://www.itr-datanet.com/~pe1itr/navspasur.html
    
    My question: are there also high orbiting satellites who are big enough that
    can reflect the radar signals back to my location? I want to try to receive
    there reflection.
    I can put the keps of the possible kandidates into my tracking software.
    
    Details:
    Radar:
    The radiation pattern of the radar has the shape of a fence and is
    transmitting straight up. The fence is aligned in a straight line from east
    (91,4 degrees az) to west. The strongest transmitter is located: Lake
    Kickapoo 216,980Mhz Location N33 32' 46" W98 45' 46"; This is the strongest
    with 767Kw RF power and 40Dbi antenna gain.
    
    My location:
    N51 26' 43" E05 24' 04";
    
    Thanks
