Using FSC to calculate EME paths

An EME path depends not only on the round trip distance, but reflection from the Moon depends on its distance (at the time) and surface reflectivity.

So, enter the actual one way path distance, a distance exponent of 4 and an Extra Path Loss of −100.7dB.

The above example shows the moon at perigee, 407,000km.
