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 :-).

Hello all, wonder has someone wkd more than 2500km? I only have seen a view contacts in the 2400km range (congrats!!)
I have tried a slow cw (40wpm) sked with Ralph 4X1IF 0330-0430z. The distance is 2711km and i have a good take off in this direction. (wkd SV9/DK5YA 39/R49 in the arietids '98 with 100W and 8el 2018km).
Ralph has nothing hrd. I hrd a few pings, but i am afraid they came not from Israel. Just after the sked was 10min running a HA5 stn was calling 4X1IF followed by another and another - at all 7 different stns and very strange also a vy wellknown EMEer was one of the disturbers. Note they never could copy 4X1IF since they called him in his TX-periode. They always start to call after my bk and easy could find out by QTF that the sign never came from Israel.
You can imagine how sad i was, a lot of emails with explanations and thoughts where changed to arange the sked and i have set a lot of hope.... At all i've got only 12min at all with clear QRG.
Besides this the shower was better than 1999/2000/2001, but far away from 1998 in my opinion.
I picked up some by fun and never called cq - thanks to all. Only 22 QSOs and a lot of incomplete because of bad procedure.
I was very happy about EI2CA/P and YC3XM for the squares #498 and #499 without eme (and without fsk441).

Hello All,
This is my report from Leonids 2002. Though I worked some new squares (KP55, KP24, JM29, IO43) which add up to 555 altogether now, I am a bit disappointed with the shower. Personally I feel like last years Leonids brought much better reflexions. Also the "maximum" was not very strong this year, at least not as strong as expected and way beyond 1998's maximum. Sadly cloudy skies here, so no visual show.

Number of QSOs listed: 15
 
Called/incomplete/heard were 9A3PS, LY2SA (would have been new DXCC), LY3ED (?), SP4OFW (would have been new DXCC), OZ1LPR, YT1UV (new DXCC), F6CBH (tropo ?), EA3BFT (?), 9A3PO, HA5HA (?), S53VV, RW3PS (new DXCC), YU3EP, IW2HAJ, S51 ZO, LA3DK(?). Plus plenty of scraps ofcourse.
Equipment was FT847, BPF, 200W, MGF1302 and 12 El DL6WU at 7m AGL next to my car. Site 200m ASL in JO01DH. The radio, in stock form could not handle strong signals and I feel that with better strong signal handling I would have worked more stations who were close to the big boys in IO91/JO01. I
have ordered the INRAD filters for the 847 and I hope that it sorts the problem out. Missed a couple of stations in the pile ups only to hear the G at this end say "Hi again Fred". That frustrated me somewhat when the burn was "used up" and I missed a new DXCC due to what appeared to be duping. But then again If it was easy I wouldnt be interested..........

I was QRV from 0100 UTC but spent the first 2-hours looking outside for visuals. Active on the 50MHz & 144MHz bands between 0300-1200 UTC. I sensed a good peak in meteor activity between 0350-0500 UTC. Also 0600-0730 UTC was good. Perhaps more casual operators at this time.
I hope to meet you all again in the next meteor shower or aurora! David / G4ASR
PS: Actually the next aurora was tonight 20 November!
DX worked on 144MHz CW included DL/UT8AL (JO43), SM0KAK (JO89), EI2TAA (IO42 - nice square!). Heard LA3BO and YL3AG.

Other stations I heard but not worked are:
SM2GCR, LA2PHA, RX1AS, I8MPO, F5PEJ, F8DO, DL1EJA, HB9FAP and EB3DYS because he used the same frequency as EA6/DL6SAQ! I personally enjoyed this shower more than last year. Special thanks for those who worked me. My highest appreciation for the EA6/DL CREW for their effort and correct operation. This time the expedition was not only for DL but for the total community of MSers!
73 es DX! See you during the next shower.

Hello guys,was a fun two nights ago!
QRV btw 0 to 6 utc (due to QRL) I made 42 QSO all in SSB. Odx was OH6HFX (KP24ia) > 2300 Km, my new MS dx. 5 QSO over 2000 Km and another fine contact with SM2CKR. Finally two new squares (tnx Johannes and Andrea - YM3XC !) into a year with about 5 new squares collected.
In few days I'll push on www.geocities.com/i4xcc an audio file with a burst  from OH6HFX (a test previous the complete qso) with both calls and report to me.

Hi MSers!
Quite a lot of pile up around 200 and very few stations on other freqs.... very hard to make DX in this way!!!!!! BTW I could manage to work 62 QSOs with: LY,YL,ES,LA,SM,G,GW,DL,SP,F,OK,HA,YO,YM,YU,9A,ON, I,LZ,
Heard : EA,SV,S5,HB9,Z32
I was mainly on SSB though I made some good distance QSO with ES6RQ and others  on FSK44. Also an almost completed QSO with ES1RF (2116 KM, it would be my ODX if completed) . Results: 4 new squares + 1 new DXCC I chased for years "YL" HI! See all of you next Geminids Shower. Thank you for the fun,  73 de IK0BZY Enrico

PS Some back-scatter reflections were much stronger on Vertical Pol.

I knew I wasn't going to have much time to spend on the Leonids. Returned home from a public appearance at New York's Hayden Planetarium^* slightly after midnight EST, set the alarm for 0410 EST (0910 UTC), and went straight to bed. (It helps a great deal to have an extremely understanding spouse!) [No, the event was not about the Leonids, it was about the Museum's terrific new exhibition on Albert Einstein. See http://www.amnh.org/programs/hayden/index.html#einstein.]
About five minutes later, or so it seemed, alarm went off and I groped my way to the shack. Found 144.200 a zoo, as expected. Plenty of burns, and good signals from stations south and west of me, more or less wherever I pointed the antenna. Had the impression that a single yagi with 30-50 degree horizontal beamwidth -- or perhaps a stacked pair of those -- might have been better for this than my rather sharp 4 x 2M9 array. Had a couple of SSB QSOs on 144.200, adding to the seething mess there; and then QSYed down 10 kHz and called a few CQs. Worked several more stations there. Checked Ping Jockey Central for stations from needed grids or in the 1300-1500 mile range; ran a couple of quick skeds and easy completions using FSK441. PJC was incredibly busy: no sooner I clicked "Go" to post a message, and already ten messages were there following mine! Hooked up with KA9UVY on PJC and agreed to run a sked on 222 MHz. Completed easily there in 15 minutes using 15-second sequences -- finishing up with a one-minute burn in which we each had a couple of nearly solid transmissions and switched to SSB to exchange 73s and thanks by voice. Probably should have tried 432 with someone, but instead checked 6 meters. Many good signals there, but I didn't transmit. Went back to 2 meters and worked a few more on 2-meter SSB. Headed back to bed at 1050 UTC for another two hours sleep, since I had a full day ahead.
In the 1.7 hours I was on, the Leonids seemed good but hardly "once in a lifetime exceptional". Not as good as last year, but
part of the difference may be that last year it fell on a weekend, which helped a lot. (Last year, too, six meters opened for F2 DX as soon as ths sun came up -- I spent most of the day working 6m DX including states #49 and 50 and a number of new
DXCC entities, returning to 2 meters from time to time to work a few more SSB randoms on good Leonids burns.)
See you in the Meteor Scatter contest in December!
