RE: [wsjtgroup] ms ?
- Hello Daniel. It depends on if you are interested in High Speed Meteor
Scatter (HSMS) or conventional voice (SSB) meteor scatter. For SSB, simply
listen on the calling frequency. If there is no local activity, you may
occasionally hear 'bursts' of signal from stations 600 to 1400 miles away,
either calling CQ or chatting. These bursts may be as short as a partial
syllable or any length up to a minute or more (very rare).
For HSMS, you can hear activity on the HSMS calling frequencies (50.260 and
144.140), but it is not decodable by ear. It sounds kind of like a BUZZ or
sometimes like motorboating. You should download the program WSJT, and
connect your receiver audio output to the sound card mic or line input on
your computer. Then you will be able to decode the HSMS signals (use
Just listening on one of the calling frequencies will work, but by
monitoring the internet Ping Jockey page, you can observe stations making
schedules and then tune to their specific frequency.
