77 reports arrived so far

There was a fine peak in Europe in 2002. Few say that we saw 3 peaks. It was more or less a fireball event, of course not like the 1998 event but pretty nice though. Next Leonid storm in 2099 :-).

I heard lots of parcials callsigns, and activity but not long to copy full callsigns. Much more than the ones indicated below.
I believe many of the heard stations were beaming to another directions, BackScatter.

Hello friends, again the Leonid-shower was a very nice event. This year I was looking especially for new squares, so the QSO-rate is not to high...hihi

*2 I "hunted" him for over 2 hours, but then we were successfull in a super single burst.

Hi all,
hard job this night, but funny at all. Seems that i missed the beginning of the 1st peak due to sleep...All QSO`s were done around 144.200 in SSB random, only one sked with the Trans Atlantic Crew EI2TAA was done, finished after 3mins.

Most of stations worked in 144,220 , because .200 was chaotic, only latter 0700 was useful to make contacts. Station was a ts711, 2x4cx250, GaAs-fet pream., 2x9 El yagi. Shower seems to have two peaks, about 05.. and about 07.. was really fine!
All the very best to all, cu!

had a lot of fun this morning during the peak of the shower. I was only able to be QRV for about 5 hours (from 03:40 to 09:00 utc) but in that time I worked 51 stations in 38 squares, mainly in SSB but also a few in FSK441.

Help please !

I have placed in my web site the recordings of SSB MS signals heard during the peak of the Leonids. You can listenthem at any of the following URLs:

Shower peak not family friendly ! couldnt work USB until 0730 however when dtr went qrt then I used WSJT for the first time in a shower.Pleased with the results and congratulations to the small number of cq callers using CQ(freq) ie CQ385 this worked very well.However some Big Guns who didnt use this system made life a misery for others by calling on 370 for long periods. Please let us look at this for standard operating procedure - its better than the letter system I think !

Hello dear VHF-Enthusiasts
While last years Leonids have been better than expected, this years Leonids seemed to be totally different. Ok, everybody expected a storm but I just believe it was a good short shower this time, about ten times less than compared with all predictions made in the past.
I made much more contacts last year, this years result looks a little smaller. I missed a lot because of QRM or weaker bursts, maybe next time again. I am not yet familiar with WSJT mode but maybe I will start with it once in the future.
All following contacts I made in SSB during one-burst- conditions with 400w and a 7el from JN37sm:

REMARKS:
Typing errors are possible and most locators I took from the VHF-Database at the cluster DB0MDX. Please contact me if one is wrong!
Remember that a lot of clusters offer this fine function "sh/vhf <call>" and we should even use this function as well! So please try it and if it works you don't have to use "sh/ann/f" for asking in the future!
For next years they don't predict a storm, so please watch out carefully! ;-)

Hello VHfers,
I am still with a little bit of disappointment regarding this storm predicted shower. I was there from 22z on 18 Nov to 12z on 19 Nov. and I worked more or less an half of stations I worked last year in 4 hours (when no storm was predicted). It seems that a common rule should be : " when a great event is strongly expected you can be sure that nothing will happen ". Anyway there were a lot of newcomers as well as a lot of big guns active so was very funny also with few meteors. This is the list of QSO, all in SSB except the first.

Number of QSOs listed: 25
I did not have seen one realy big peak in Leonids'2002 like 1998 or 2001. Only 03-05 utc have observed longest reflections, max 2 min. Maybe reason was big QRM from military radar station near my QTH. Anyway have made some interestings QSOs (UX0FF, UY5HF, OH8K, F4CKV) and4 new locators. Longest QSO - F6CRP at 1928 km.
Rig here: IC-821H, PA 300W, ant 1x16el. 4wl at 200m ASL.

Well the predictions were a little off. As I remember, most predictions said that this storm was going to be better than last years. Not even close, at least at my QTH. Wonder if anyone in North America hit storm levels.
I did manage to work 2 new grids on 6 meters, and 1new grid on 2 meters. Even tried 2 FSK441 skeds on 70cm. The first one copied both calls, but I gotnothing from him, and the second copied partial calls, but again, nothing received here. Need to find a preamp for 432, I guess.
The burns were strong when they were in, but they were few and far between. I did have a 5 minute period of constant scatter conditions on 6 around 0830Z. Worked 6 or 7 stations in that time period, and even had a pileup going. Heard some loud burns from K4QI, K9MRI, and K4ZOO as late as 1500Z. Was still getting good pings on WSJT at that time, but they seemed to be one way rocks as AF4O could not copy my signal. I was getting pings from him every sequence, and we are using the same antenna and similar levels of power (100 w vs. 180 w).
Well hope someone had good conditions. Lets hope for a good Geminids!!

I am not an experienced MS operator, but my Perseids experience was  definitely better. Here I have a small station: only 11 elements at 20ft and about 80W at the  antenna for 2m, preamp at the antenna. Stns attempted=10 Stns with some copy=6 Stns completed=2 New grids=1 Best distance=1837km (DM43di-EN30ll)
The highlight was definitely around 1030Z, while I was working K7UV on a  short N-S path, where the pings were running about 6-8 per 30 second sequence, most about 80ms, and occasional sequences with 20-25 second  burns. But that seemed to last only about 15 minutes.
Heard several very clear SSB pings from DM78. Judging from the traffic on PJ it would seem that intermediate N-S and NE-SW paths were best. Surprisingly I seem to have much bigger ears than mouth. Gotta get that  4CX250 amp finished, and replace the 120 feet of RG-213 with some 7/8" hardline!

Hi friends,
Nice Leonids shower observed, but not as spectacular as predicted....I was QRV between 18Nov 20.00 UTC and 19Nov 13.00 UTC and of course in the 2 days before the shower. Most interesting things have been worked before Leonids started: the GREAT DXpeditions by the OH8K team and the exped. by OH6HFX. THANKS AGAIN boys for another great job!!
Best reflections observed 19Nov 0400-0510 UTC, second "peak" between 0630-0700 UTC and the last one 1000-1100 UTC, The 04-05 peak was the very best with long reflections and far distances !! (10-11 UTC was just a "local-Europe" party, hi (800-1300 km). I was hunting for new grids and I worked all (3) possible new grids for a total of 748 grids now:-)))) (Great! Ed.)
Some 30 European DXCCC have been heard (did not bother to call everybody...) and 20 DXCC worked. I wanted to stay in good harmony with my neighbors so I did not call CQ :-)) (but the new PA is running fine...)
Score is 38 complete QSO's (random only) , 3 stations beyond the magic 2000 km (ODX 2225 km) and 10 stations beyond
1750 km (the others were "locals", hihi). I did not hear ANY activity in HSCW, until appr. 0300 UTC there was ONLY an enormous flock of FSK441-stations messing up at 144.370 and from 0300 on, I did not monitor .370 anymore. I must admit that FSK441 from a technical point of view really works fine now (changed SB-card in my PC) but the real thrill still is **hearing** and human decoding..... I am SAD that HSCW has gone, like in this years Perseids shower.
Hope to see all of you in 2099 in the next leonids (NO skeds yet pse), and maybe before that during coming weekends
ARRL EME contest !!

Nice shower, difficult to work stations with 50w, 13 ele. Hearing the big guns in this area working dupes again and again. Here wkd 9 stations no dupe wkd.
T94DU, EA6/DL6SAQ, EA6/DL1GGT, EA6/DL1SAN, EI2CA/P, HA6ZB, HA8V, SM5CUI, YO3FFF/P. Wkd T9 for #48 and 4 new squares. Stations who dont work between 190-210 were easy to work, because some only listen around 200. Loudest burst hrd from OH5LK, EA3DXU, I8MPO, TK5EP, EW1EW.
Hope activity also this big in perseids and good luck in geminids nice shower for hscw/wsjt!!

Hi All, All in all, a good shower for me. I've made 150 complete QSOs, plus several which have been made twice in the pileups.
I did'nt look for new squares and DXCC, as i prefer to offer TK and JN41 to a many people as possible. So not too many new #. I have had a loooooonng burst up to 6 min !! INCREDIBLE. Also a lot of short distance QSOs and side scatter.
Worked my first WSJT QSOs.... not very impressed by the S/N ratio. far less  what i was expecting. No CW QSO, i called several times on .100, but NIL. At the same time 144.370 was very busy... Times are changing !
