Morning 2 of a poor Leonid session. Two very weak minute long trains produced nothing. The log above was the product of one hour long session. I abandoned the remaining four one hour sessions as I didn't have a lot of free time and found that Asiatic medium wave DX was far more interesting.

It's weird. Several years ago, I would have been glad of a meteor log like this. Now I'm moaning about how poor conditions were. But I didn't have an SDR receiver years ago.

Good DX!
