Moon Bounce Communication

Before we had man-made communications satellites, a technique called the "Moon bounce" was used to send long-range radio signals. Radio waves were sent up from Earth, bounced off the Moon, and then back down to a receiver on Earth. The technique is still used by some amateur radio operators.
