Meteor Scatter on Saturday - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi,

how was the shower? Haven't heard much here in Euroupe. Have to wait until the nice November-shower of the Leonids!

I almost never get on any VHF other than 2m FM mobile in the truck. So I didn't even bother to get out of bed for the meteor event.

Hi All
I normally look for MS beacon pings on 6 and 10 but heard nothing either last weekend, nor the weekend before. The German beacons usually produce about 1 good burst every 10 minutes even with a dipole antenna, but not this shower. Let's hope the Leonids will be better.

Leonids have been very nice the past years with wideopened band for up to one hour! Unfortunately not so many stations QRV, since it's most often in the middle of night.
