See the 2001 summary here

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 :-).

Hola to all,
A bit late ... here is my report of Leonids . Reflections were similars than last year and incomparable with 1998. First peak was more or less as predicted and second peak around 9 Z with less activity.

Dear friends,
here is my report on Leonids 2002. I enjoyed this event very much, even if I could not contact many stations because of my limited conditions (100 watts into a 16 elements F9FT). Below I list only the stations to which I gave a call, but I heard several more ones.
Please, can anyone help me in finding some pieces of information? Thanks!
1) The E-mail address of SM1A;
2) the call sign of a station ending in "EKC" (I lost the prefix in the QRM);
3) the locator of SM2EZ.
I am planning to put some recorded sounds in my home page as soon as possible (some good bursts have been lost since the recorder was not going, sorry). See:

Operation from my second QTH. 672 meter ASL. Wintertime - with snow and 18 gr C below freezing. Antennas are now fixed to the tower - and next operation will be in spring 2003 (mai/june).
Rig : IC746, MGF1302, 2x4CX250B and 4 x 15 el
All wrk on SSB random 144.200 +-. Sri for the station that are not in my logg. The pilup where tremendos when i called CQ - My notepad are full of partly copied callsign.

Found 1 ste. maxima a bit later than calculated. Fun, but
crowded on 144.200. Missed som good DX like YU1EV, I4XCC, IW2HAJ, I4RHP No second maxima (10UTC) was found in my loction. Made QRT at 10.45 UTC and spendt 6 hours in the car on slippy roads (ice) back to OSLO (JO59). CU all (during wintertime) from LA2AB (clubstation) , 73/Ken

HI all...I operated from LZ1KWT during the Leonides... We were using the EME sistem of LZ1DP 4x5 lambda cros pol yagis and 2xGU74b... The QTH IS KN22TK !!! LZ1DP will reply to the qsl's...and will send an E-log soon...
Bye for now and CU in BCC HSCW 73 73 Savi/LZ1UK

During such big showers, it is not always good to have a good location, mine is up in 860m NN. Received also a lot
of Stations in tropo. The full I4 & I2 land and DL to the French Border. However it was a great fun to work the
following Stations in MS during the Leonids.

Hello all,
I enjoyed the Leonids very much. The peak has been predicted well and I worked about 100 QSO. I was amazed with many UA stations. Complete log and audio records of all QSO are available on http://www.qsl.net/ok2pin

9A1CAL/P JN82iw
Here are the results of 9a1cal/p from jn82iw (Island of Korcula):
Tropo QSO: 41
HSCW QSO: 0
WSJT QSO: 60
MS-SSB QSO: 164
Total QSO: 265
Number of QSO is not to bad, but special sorry for HSCW! We spent lot of hours calling CQJ on 144.100, but no single ping response. At the same time there was lot of bursts at WSJT QRG. It seems there is nobody listening HSCW random QRG any more.
Here is the number of stations wkd MS SSB (total 164) by countries:
DL 49, F 34, G 19, PA 16, I 9, ON 7, EA 5, SM 4, SP 4, GW 3, OZ 3, EI 2, OK 2, HA 2, GI 1, HB9 1, LZ 1, SV 1, S5 1
All QSO's were random. Most of QSO's were single-burst QSO. There was lot of nice BS from I, S5, SV, and LZ stns. We did not succeed to complete 11 QSO's (NC).
Number of countries worked is not very high, reason for that is we were unable to rotate antenna because of strong wind (up to 150 km/h).
 
Most of the time our antenna was fixed beaming north-west. Pity we did not work any Ukrainian or Russian station, we probably missed some nice DX over 2000 km from that direction.
We had lot of problems (extreme wind, disabled antenna rotator, etc ...), but assuming all troubles we had, results are satisfying.
See whole story at
http://www.qsl.net/9a1cal/leo2002/9a1cal-p.htm (results,
location description, picture gallery, etc.).
Although shower ZHR was far from predicted, it was good shower for hams. Not as good as in the year 1998, but somewhere at last year level.
This shower was specific by lot of short bursts what is not typical for Leonids as well as big gaps between long bursts. Astronomers will probably determine much higher ZHR as most of hams are expecting, because of very high number of this short burst unusable for SSB MS QSO. This chart is showing number of our QSO's in 10 minutes time intervals. However, ZHR cannot be seen from chart, but number of QSO's is sure in relationship with frequency of long-duration bursts. In fact, it is efficiency of shower for 2m QSO in time scale.
