Meteor Scatter

Leonids '99

That was my first MS experience. I found it very hard and exciting. I worked nice DXs just within few hours! This sort of operating requires quick reactions and experiences: just different report rating made me think and lose rare time while you never know how much time remains till the end of burst. It is a good preparation for contest pile-up.

Pavel, OK2PMU and me were operating from OK2KJT club station in Dusna, JN99AJ. We used TCRV R2CW, PA 300 W and ANT 6 x 13 el. DJ9BV + 4 x 9 el. OK2ZZ. It is more contest than MS configuration. We alternated by the mike every half an hour.

All the acitivity has been recorded on tape. Later I sampled the QSOs into the .wav file using 8 kHz sampling frequency and GSM 6.10 compression. I used a great recorder developed by Petr, OK1IRG. Next time I will record my activity directly into notebook. It makes a typical file size of 30 kB.
