Welcome to the VHF DX opportunities of
HSCW Meteor Scatter Operation!
[No frames page]
Why try HSCW? Other than being something else with which to experiment, it is much more efficient than slow CW or SSB meteor scatter! How much more? That depends on conditions, etc. But in general, if you have a 10% chance of completing a MS sked on SSB, you probably have a greater than 90% chance on HSCW! Not only that, but HSCW is usable every day of the year, not just during the peaks of major shower. This is because HSCW MS needs only the brief pings of sporadic meteors. Fractional-second underdense pings are all that is needed. And these are available just about all the time. No, you can't complete if there aren't at least a few pings. But on over a year of daily skeds, an 80%+ completion rate has been common most of the time.
If you are not familiar with HSCW, we suggest that you bring up the whole Welcome to get a little background. Then explore the sounds (and sights) of HSCW. After this, take a look at some of the many papers and helps vailable. Note especially the FAQ, Semi-Technical FAQ, and Procedures. Then continue on from there.
If you are already familiar with HSCW but are looking for something specific, check out the various topics on the left. If you don't find it here, we suggest that you try the W6/PAØZN Web site. And hyperlinked from both that site and this one are a lot more VHF DX/MS/HSCW Web sites. What you need is probably there.
(Remember that this is only a backup for the huge W6/PAØZN HSCW Web site. Much more HSCW data is available there.
We hope to hear you on HSCW MS soon! Try it! You'll like it!
