10/24 23:00 Lurking.	(K0ASK/6/2 Bob KS EM28in 75.105.70.26)
10/24 21:25 Hi Floyd...I am over on EME-1	(K5DOG/222 Stevedog TX EM00wh 70.112.147.116)
10/24 21:22 Hello Steve	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 24.92.122.187)
10/24 21:17 211200 12  -14  3.6 -581  3 *      LX0OHB-4M0310  nice signal.  Tnx Ged.	(K5DOG/222 Stevedog TX EM00wh 70.112.147.116)
10/24 21:10 Hello Rich	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 24.92.122.187)
10/24 20:08 JT65B	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 20:04 What mode of WSJT Gedas?	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 24.92.122.187)
10/24 17:31  For tracking go to this link :  http : // moon.luxspace.lu/tracking/ enter your LAT & Long & click on COMPUTE & you will have all the tracking information's for your location	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 17:30 FYI:  The Chinese probe going to the moon can be seen on WSJT SpecJT on 145.980	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 16:34 have fun 73	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:33 bout time for me to go do my upper body workout and put another layer of shine on the Mercedes...CUL	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:31 really	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:31 grrrrrr  100 percent wrong 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:31 100@rong*	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:30 but that trail still must be within range of both stations	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:30 must remember that using logic is a way to be 100@rong with total confidence 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:30 I can see where ur likely hood of working a station wud go up if he is within range	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:27 I would have thought using the METEOR TRAIL bearing from Virgo at a low angle point source would extend the possible distance 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:24 looks like if u go by AZ heading in virgo--it wud reduce ur max distance	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:22 really	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:22 can be hilarious too ...at times 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:22 sometimes it is difficult to fig mistyped word out  	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:21 I could type 65 WPM...as long as you can read Typonese 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:20 I have problem hitting more than 1 key at a time	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:19 and learn to type....maybe	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:19 geometry hust doesnt look right, but I am going to tae Gedas's word for it 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:18 but for very long distance seems it wud be bad advice	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:18 Looks like that info wud wk ok when station is near say less than 1000 miles	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:17 yessir ?	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:17 Rich	(K5LA/6M Floyd TX DM61tv 37.221.173.228)
10/24 16:11 CUL	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:11 Java is nudging his nose under the laptop telling me it's time to go play fetch......BBL	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 16:09 right, I think thats where my thinking was getting sidetracked	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:09 on a true random it does not matter	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 16:08 okay, i can see that.  So, on a random CQ, would pointing  at the source point be better ?	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:07 so given that, you use the info from Virgo to show you when the meteors will be cutting across the path between you & the other station to maximize the burn time of the trail, that's all	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 16:06 yup	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:06 ok look at it this way.....for a long haul QSO you know you are always going to point right at the other station right?	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 16:04 love a good random... but I am going against my "point and shoot" mentality when i use the antenna info in Virgo,, trying to beat that part of my head into submission 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:02 of course if the station you are trying to work is NOT in the direction it is indicating then it is saying good luck Charlie, ur on ur own and you better hope for a good random	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 16:01 yup, highest odds for a given period 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 16:00 it's just indicating the best directions at that moment	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 16:00 it's not saying to point ur antenna away from the station you are trying to work	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 15:59  time to try in order to utilize that 90 degree attack angle	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 15:59 RRR....I guess I don't have an issue because the radient is just that....it's a point where they originate from....they shoot out in all directions, 360 degrees, so what it is telling you is the best	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 15:56 indeed I have, and I grant you the theory aspect... its getting my monkey brain/fingers to move the antenna where its telling me to 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 15:55 ahhh LOL......have you ever watched a meteor shower visually ?	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 15:54 Yeah..but my monkey wrench mind has a hard time with pointing north when the loci is 10 degrees above my west horizon	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
10/24 15:53 the reason for the 90 degree path is to maximize the ionization time thus increasing the probability of getting more data across and it paints a larger area for ur rf to hit	(W8BYA Ged IN EN70jt 173.30.165.171)
10/24 15:51 anytime 	(KB7IJ Rich TX EM12mr 76.185.32.59)
