FFTDSP Detection of NASA's Lunar Prospector

Shuichiro Hirakawa (JA6SNK/1) was able to detect the Lunar Prospector using a small DBS dish
(45CM in diameter) and a helical feed. The receiver was an AR-5000 scanner tuned to 2273 Mhz.

Here is the FFTDSP spectrogram:

   FFTDSP clearly recorded the signal from the Luner just as it went
  under horizon together with the Moon at 18:05 Feb. 27 '98 Japan Time.
