Been trying to knock the rust off the satellite setup lately, so I tuned into a couple FM birds this afternoon.
Here in Denverland we have the “Six Meter Invitational Net” – tongue-in-cheek of course; anybody can join. It’s a very laid back social gathering and I love it. A few fellas light up our 6M repeaters Sundays at 10AM and say hello. I wasn’t able to check in this week, but got a little audio from them.
Will be attempting to work AO-91 in between turkey cooking today! 47 deg pass from 1216 to 1230 Mountain time.
435.250 67.0hz uplink
Numerous reports that it’s a LOUD bird!

Here’s a quick sample of a meteor scatter ping on 6m.
Coming up this weekend – Leonid meteor showers!
We will be attempting to work Friday night/Saturday morning and Saturday night/Sunday morning on 6m and 2m meteor scatter from DM79 in west Denver.
If you are new to the meteor scatter modes, you will be very familiar with MSK144’s operating process – as it’s almost exactly like FT8’s!
Pingtalk as always is your clearinghouse for Meteor Scatter QSO scheduling. Lurk first! If you are planning to try to listen, early mornings (2a-6a) local time are going to be hottest. Aim east!
See you on the air!
