144 MHz Meteorscatter Sprint Contest 2016
Important notification: published results on MMMonVHF are a bit different then those published in DUBUS or elswhere. Reason is correction of log received from UR4EWZ that was rejected by Norton E-mailscanner. This resulted in loss of 64 QSO's. These have been added to the processed log of UR4EWZ and resulted in correction of final score.
The 2016 edition of the "144 MHz Meteorscatter Sprint Contest" was held from August 11, 2016, 22:00 GMT until August 13, 2016, 21:59:59 GMT. The final results for this contest are as follows:

|Class 2: QRO (ERP > 1500 Watts)|
As contestmanager for the 2016 edition of the "144 MHz Meteorscatter Sprint Contest" I certify that the results above are thrue and correct to my best knowledge and belief.

Here comes the SF3NR group contest log with some pictures.
The main priority was to activate JP92 from a great qth wich was at SM3LIC land
as it is private area also the hill topp where SK3MF is located on are on a private fenced area wich clearly is meaning private region.
The idea to activate JP92 came as I have seen how many have tried to do as /p and landed on a camping site low terrain below somethin , yeah abit of mission impossible..
1 year ago I planted a idea why not to get over and do the ms sprint from JP92fw but I wanted green light from both of SM3LIC and SM3UZS that we wanted to do and lukely I knew thrue my father OH6PA SM3LIC/Hans so I asked kindly if it was possible and yes it was a go.. then as we got industry holidays in july/august shift it fitted perfectly to do it, while the idea started to grow all went in as a train , the beast at place we heard was in good shape and ready to go. then came the Bonus.. OH6ZZ/Jussi wanted to do join on aswell and this time without his own radio gears, what a bonus it went SM3VAC /Magnus came along too and wanted to run even if he had QRL but that fitted in well ,so 3 operators did do the thing of it, this operation wouldnt been possible from a such great QTH and setup if we would not have had help from Hans and Johan..
We made total qso then I count started MS and EME qso also some double and NC almost 250 MS qsos and 9 EME ,
this tripp I hope also gave some boost to local SM3:s which visited that MS qso can be done even if its big or small setup..

Thanks for all QSO's and see you in 2017!
We dedicated this activity in memoriam of my wife XYL Ceci/LZ2CI (SK at age 50).
A special callsign LZ0C was issued to me.
We spent a week in the mauntines but we had to QRT during the maximum of the meteors because of terrible weather/rain and wind/ and high static noise.
CU you all next year.

Great activity and a lot of fun during this dx-pedition in C3. As you know, the radio MS-activity wasn't only on 144MHz, but also on 70MHz and 50MHz. So we had to be very busy.
Mni tks to all staton's who did work us or who did follow us as SWL.
This year again I participated /p , operating from nice place in mountain Lyulin, and very close (less than 10km) from home.
Working outdoors gives opportunity to combine contest participation, visual monitoring the Perseids shower....
I invited many friends to join me even for a short time, but to get acquainted with MS activities. Thanks for all who visited contest site - more than 15 people!
So we spent a pleasant night under the stars in spite of technical problems with power generator and ( relatively ) low temperatures.
