MS sprint contest

"Final results 144 MHz Meteorscatter Sprint Contest 2022"




I enjoyed the competition. From my point of view the maximum was not as intended.
It's amazing how many colleagues heard me, but didn't respond to my CQ.
It is also noticeable that many people do not know the MS working procedure.
Congratulations to the winners and I wish everyone good health.

As usual the accent is - to promote ham radio, contesting and particular MS...among young and older friends!
Thanks for your work
73 and greetings from Victor and the whole team

It was disturbing that many close stations called, in direct mode. It is always disturbing but during the meteor scatter activity even more.
Those who called me through tropo I did not want to listen to I answered to the others to make the frequency clearer.
I do not understand, this mode was invented for the MS connections and the used frequency as well. There are other mode for traditional
connections (cw, ssb …) and a lot of free frequency.
Others did not like either.




This year from home QTH only with QSO#s above 1500km
Thank you for the processing of the logs.
Best 73's, Horst DF9PX
