Aug12 04:21 troposcatter making recording anything hard tonight. Stupid LPFMs - En35 (
Aug12 03:35 102? I'll be sitting in the fog with jackrabbits and coyotes ... Mike (
Aug12 03:27 [2342] Yes, correct. But forget an hour of listening to static in 102F heat. I did hear KMMS, KEGA and a couple others during daytime Ms bursts before. > Yakima CN96 (

Aug12 01:16 It's fitting that is started 'on-time' at 0001 UTC - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Aug12 01:14 Hope it peaks past 200+ ZHR in the hours ahead - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Aug12 01:11 JimT: I think our friend has just arrived with its steep 25 deg. climb angle - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Aug12 01:00 JAW, did you see its back on the upswing. Last hour ZHR was 120, this hour finishing 131 - JimT/MO EM37 (
Aug12 00:55 The meteor scatter ZHR dipped to 26 during the 19U hour; the lowest during the whole UTC day. - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Aug11 23:52 On the channel 2 graph, you can see the autologger had a bunch of Ms activity from 9:30-11 am today (CDT) - JimT/MO EM37 (
Aug11 23:51 [23:29] I have sat waiting during that overnight period for the peak that never came, but had better luck earlier as well as later ... Mike (
Aug11 23:49 Sorry about the green. Forgot to put a space at the beginning :-( - JimT/MO (
Aug11 23:48 Ms on those graphs are the sharp spikes. I have had my VHF 2-6 antenna due East all week, as that's the least amount of *noise* on the autologger - JimT/MO (
Aug11 23:47 That was DTV 2. This is DTV 3. Keep in mind, the HDHR detects BOTH digital and analog - JimT/MO EM37 (
Aug11 23:46 IF you go here, you can see Ms pings on my HDHR autologger early this morning - JimT/MO EM37 (
Aug11 23:46 By the way, that KZWB catch was during this afternoon... afternoon. Not night. Rick is right - En35 (
Aug11 23:42 Yak, just my opinion, but seems to me that gearing recording FM signals based on peak _viewing_ time means you're missing some good stuff. The activity doesn't stop because the sun has risen. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Aug11 23:38 If I use the FM6, DT 5 may be in order!/cdEL96 (
Aug11 23:37 Still not sure whether I should set box on DT 3 or DT 8, because my TV antenna may still act up, and the FM6 will have to do the dirty work./cdEL96 (
Aug11 23:36 Well for me, below is good news. I just hope no t'storms, as both antennas should be working hard. :) /cdEL96 (
Aug11 23:30 Randy, if so this year, it'll have to hurry. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Aug11 23:29 I had several bursts on 101.5 between 3:30-5AM, seemed to be this morning's peak. Always had success overnight. The media tells us 'the peak time is after midnight to sunrise'... > Yakima CN96 (
Aug11 23:27 Aaron, no I don't. We don't really get tropo, but some enhancement, which was most evident on the 9th but certainly gone now as high pressure weakened. Ms happened anytime, but more prevalent late afternoon/early evening and 11 PM to 3 AM. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Aug11 23:26 that's not true the closer to the peak you get the burns become longer, stronger and more frequent. At least it has been that way here the last 12 years of recording - RZ EM60 (
Aug11 23:14 Rick - do you have any explanation for that data? I'm wondering if tropo adversely affected it. > Aaron, FM 29 (
Aug11 22:52 I will have to remember this. I just know that there wasn't that much green in the last 10 days on this board, was there?/cdEL96 (
Aug11 22:44 The closer we get to the peak, the less Ms we have. Very good pings where an ID possible if at right time: 8-1: 3; 8-2: 6; 8-3: 2; 8-4: 7; 8-5: 8-5: 6; 8-6: 3; 8-8: 5; 8-9: 4; 8-10 & 8-11 1 each but too short to ID. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (

Aug11 21:44 Too hot to go out and check open freqs. Next recording tonight 12-7am. Either 96.1 or 97.7. 98.5 had too much KMNA splash and KEYW was enhanced - so lots of 98.3 interference too. > Yakima CN96 (

Aug11 17:43 BTW, I was listening to the Kittitas SDR for a while today and I had a short Ms burst with 'Faithfully' by a band called 'Journey' (Shazam recognition) around 04:15 PDT. Couldn't find out who that was - Finndx (
Aug11 17:41 [16:38] True. And also true that Ms is hit-and-miss. Not having Ms on 99.5 doesn't prove that I didn't have it on any frequency. 101.5 is a much better freq than 99.5, but it's one I don't have. Other clearest freqs are 95.3, 104.3 & 104.7. Possibly 101.1 or 103.1 if some constant signal is acceptable. Other tries on 101.1 have been unsuccessful. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (

Aug11 16:54 Yak, like I said yesterday, Aug. 1-5 this year tops any Ms monitoring I've done since I started trying for Ms during showers in 2012. And so far these are the worst Perseids in those six years. I know, they're not done. But I feel like they are! - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Aug11 16:53 Unable to confirm KEGA either as they had a syndicated show in that hour! No IDs at all - but glad I'm getting activity. Tonight 96.1 or 97.7. > Yakima CN96 (
Aug11 16:50 Unable to confirm KGFM as their playlist only goes back 30-45 minutes. Checking KEGA > Yakima CN96 (
Aug11 16:49 But remember, the peak is coming up in a couple days - 80-100 meteors an hour. > Yakima CN96 (

Aug10 21:29 Clarification: This year's Aug. 1-5 more active than any Perseids period I've monitored from 2012 on. That's why I'm wondering if more aggressive monitoring in early August could yield better results than Perseids monitoring, at least here. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Aug10 21:24 I don't know, Jim, but it may change the way I DX. I first noticed the upswing accidentally when I got Ms on a channel where I didn't think it was possible.

Aug. 1-5 more active than Ms periods from 2012 on. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (

Aug06 21:30 Bill, that seems to be the logical answer, since it's nearby and uses the Wolf moniker. And that just may be right. But I just can't hear 99 or 5.

Aug06 12:57 [12:48] I'd love to see that. Since pings affect different frequencies, I'd think it would be a memorable, exciting experience.
