Just for the record, I alternated my beam heading from due north (copied
W3ADO), to NW, 315 degrees (copied N8DEU), and due west (copied nothing).
By my calculations, Lincoln is at a heading of 316 degrees from my qth.  If
you had been beaming toward Florida when a meteor entered, there is a good
chance I would have heard you.  What direction where you beaming?
