Notes on meteor scatter on 432MHz

(2013-08-13) PE1ITR
This page are my experiences on 432MHz meteorscatter qso/sked I made. I made this page to document some findings. It helps me to remember and maybe it helps somebody else too.
OK1TEH has made a very nice page on the subject with also the history on 70cm meteor scatter.

Sked 2007-08-12 OK2POI (JN99AJ)
Freq.: 432.320MHz. Mode FSK441.

The two recording below are made and received by OK2POI of my signal. I was running 2x16el Yagi and 800w. An Example of good 70cm bursts.

Using the msrx software from DJ5HG helps to decode the fsk441 messages that are scattered into parts.

Sked 2013-8-11 19:00 - 21:00UTC I1NDP (JN45AL)
Freq.: 432.370MHz. Mode FSK441. Very short distance of 690km
Remarks: No complete QSO. Short Pings with high doppler. Head echo type. Receiver RIT to +400Hz. Meteors just to fast. Maybe next time using a SDR radio. Elevation 13 degrees en azimuth 178 degrees.

Interesting point is the antenna qth. 1. short distance and 2. To narrow beamwidth for ms. I1NDP is using 16x26el. PE1ITR is using 4x16el. For this test we selected the following direction. I1NDP to 330 degrees azimuth. PE1ITR to 178 degrees azimuth. Our test didn't work out as planned. When I look at the MSQTH program we had better selected other directions and create a backscatter situation: I1NDP to 330 degrees and PE1ITR to 260 degrees azimuth. Or I1NDP to 100 degrees azimuth and PE1ITR to 140 degrees azimuth.
