** Personal First

The Perseids became more active during the morning of the 12th. I received a surprisingly large number of Danish locals, all of them personal firsts. 105.4 had a punch up between two Danish locals. Each time I played the recording through I managed to squeeze more RDS data out of them. The PI codes of both stations appeared each time. I uploaded a few videos of these to my YouTube channel:

** Personal First

Disappointingly low numbers of meteor bursts during the hours of dawn. Once again, it's hard to believe we are in the midst of a major meteor shower.

Good DX!
