meteor pings from West Belarus 0754ut

66.08 & 66.32

I was so busy watching the more obvious target on 66.2 I nearly missed these. 66.08 was kultura (1748km) with talking
66.32 was Mx (1898km)
This is my favourite area of the world to dx (and my favourite part in general) so it's a nice start to the day

Apart from these pings meteor is very poor today on both FM bands.

Ambitalk comms on 66.325 and data burst tx on 66.2375 are not causing any problems to dxing


I'm trying a different Rx configuration today in case of winter e skip and to try to persuade myself I don't need to buy that used icom 7300 I'm considering :D

Airspy HF+ on oirt
Elad on R1
Reuter rdr54 on 87.5-87.8


PS: another ping at 0818 brought in Grodno/Hrodna on 66.2 (1718km) and a repeat of 66.08
Rx: Burkhardt Reuter RDR54D1, Elad FDM-S2, Airspy HF+ w/ CLP 5130 Log P ant on rooftop rotator V/H polarization options. Pira P275 RDS analyser
