It was very much fun for me and I took holidays for the Perseids and I wanted to make as many QSOs as possible. I liked the activity and called myself many times CQ on 370 and was pleased that a lot of stations answered on my CQ.
I am very happy about working ZB2 first time for me on 144Mhz.
During my CQ-Calls (of course with splitted RX) I found out, that you can run WSJT twice. So I was able to monitor the 370 and my split QRG at once. This increased my effectiveness of QSOs worked.

Did not make so many contacts this time. I was hunting for new squares but this starts to become challenging as it often involves long distance and/or stations using low power. I had a couple of unsuccessful trials when I was in JO59IX. Not sure I was QRV during the peak, reflections never lived up to usual “Perseid style”. Was lucky to complete with IW7DEC Roberto over 2123km, quite a long distance for medium power. Nice and unusual QSO also with TF3CY Benedict who produced big reflections over 1742km. Thanks for all contacts!
Victor, LZ1NY, was active near Sofia in KN12OP. The team was visited by Bulgarian "Nova TV" and they made short broadcoastvideo dedicated to Perseids and radio-amateurs.
