MScatter good here last night

Last night was the first time I've monitored Leonid scatter.

Here is a list of some of the stations monitored here in 
south-east Iowa (EN40in) on 144.200 ~ 144.205 MHz from
11:00 p.m. to  1:30 a.m. CST.

W7XU   EN13lm   533km
W1AIM  FN34uj  1574km!
W2QK   FN30    1555km
N3FA   FN21bg  1309km
N4PZ   EN52gb   210km
N8HTV  EN82ml   730km

Other stations were heard in South Dakota, Texas, South Carolina,
New York, Virginia and Oklahoma.

Signal were very sporadic, as expected, but at times 5/9!  Could 
have worked some good DX with a kilowatt, but had a lot of fun
just listening from this 'peanut whistle' satellite station.

This was a fun diversion, and good use of the excellent receiver
systems most of us have for satellite work.

Good Luck and have fun tonight!
