Nope, antenna gain, a byproduct of its directionality, is absolutely
bi-directional unless there is something in the near field to absorb
power. Pringle cans are wunnerfull things when you need to reach several
miles, the record being 39 miles I believe. A google search will spit out
at least 50 designs based on the original pringle can idea.
And if the moon wasn't such a sponge due to surface roughness dispersion
at those frequencies, a couple of 10 foot well shaped old c-band
satellite dishes could probably be used for moon-bounce. Their gain
would be 50 some db if still in good figure.
