This year's Perseid meteor shower peaks on Aug. 12-13, and it promises to be one of the best displays of the year. If forecasters are correct, the shower should produce a peak display of at least 80 meteors per hours. (link) When the sky is clear and no clouds, go out there to see this spectacular sight. Best time to watch is in the early morning between 2 and 5 AM. If your station is suitable for Meteor scatter (Enough power >25 watts and horizontal polarized antennas) using FSK441 for 2 meter, you can make nice contacts. I wonder what WSPR can do on 10 meter or 6 meter. It would be a nice experiment, but I think WSPR activity on 10 meter is too low to make ionospheric scatter interesting. Tonight I see a gig in Paradiso, Amsterdam of The Animals with Eric Burdon. I like that sixties music. Oh Boy, they are getting old, and so do I. I am afraid I will have not too much sleep... Last night I worked on 40 meter with PSK31: DG8PD, RZ3DVP, SP3AXJ/3 and SP3JSD. On 80 meter: DL6ØDARC. This morning there was an opening on 15 meter. I worked RA9WJ with PSK31, distance 3320 km. Two hours later the band was closed again.
At 14.35 I worked OK1HAS Ludi from Hradek, Czech republic on 40 meter with CW. There was a lot of QSB on the signal and it was difficult to copy sometimes.
