** Personal Skegness 'First'
I did it! I won a Gold Star award for Outstanding Incompetence. Regarding my comment yesterday about fouling up my overnight recordings three mornings in a row ... well, this morning I actually remembered to plug the antenna into the correct receiver, but I forgot to delete the previous day's recordings, so my hard drive filled up after a few minutes worth of recordings. I think that definitely qualifies for the Gold Star award.
I know the conditions were appalling for a meteor peak as I was awake half the night and I was only aware of one brief meteor ping which affected only one frequency. That's all my MS DXing for a while as I want to be prepared for the Es now. I didn't manage to get the five remaining frequencies for MS: 94.5 98.3 99.3 99.4 & 101.5. Hopefully later in the year when meteor activity improves.
