I would like a few reports on the Leonids meteor shower yesterday. Was it
really a storm - those who saw it around the year 2000 remember how good it
was. For one period of about an hour it sounded like 2 meter Es.
Since almost all meteor contacts are now made by FSK441, you will have to
judge if it was significantly better than random. The software is so
powerful that contacts can be made - and often easily made - on nothing more
than random meteors.
I am most interested in the more difficult 2 meter reports and particularly
in ANY reports of 222 [or 432] meteor contacts.
