144 MHz Meteorscatter Sprint Contest 2015
The 2015 edition of the "144 MHz Meteorscatter Sprint Contest 2015" was held from August 12, 2015, 04:00 GMT until August 14, 2015, 23:59 GMT. Sofar, the following logs have been received:
Class 1: QRP (ERP < 1500 Watts)
Class 2: QRO (ERP > 1500 Watts)
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.

Sorry, we could not work during the night 12/13 due strong thunderstorm.Strong QRM was few hours before and after this thunderstorm and we sorry, if we could not received any stations, called us.
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!
