One of the most unusual ham radio operating modes is meteor scatter or bouncing signals off the ionized trails left by space dust from meteors in the the earth’s atmosphere. Shelby Ennis, W8WN has operated this mode for over 50 years, first on CW using tape recorders to send a high speed bursts, then using the K1JT digital modes. We learn that meteor scatter is a reliable mode for morning QSOs and much more in this QSO Today with W8WN.
