Perseids 2012 – part 2

After the Olympics closing ceremony had finished at around 0030 local time 13th August, I set the WSJT gear up monitoring 144.370 for a second night.

As to be expected a bit less activity but still some nice reflections:

I8KEV (Best reflections of the night!)
ON1IM (Probably tropo or backscatter)
S51AT (Great consistent reflections)

Very encouraging to have copied all these stations. I’ve got the 2m PA available again now, so ought to be able to run enough power for some MS tests, even with the little antenna. I think it will be something fun to try over the quieter conditions of autumn and winter.
