Gemenids – 2015

The Geminids are considered to be one of the more spectacular meteor shower during a year, with the possibility of sighting around 120 meteors per hour at its peak. At this year, maximum of shower was predicted between 13 -14th of December.
This time, again, I did not spent much time, but tried to be in the air around predicted maximum and looked for new MS initials. It was successive: from 81 QSO, the new initials were 40. I am satisfied.
Some statistic in graphical view is below.

But the most interesting was QSO with Przhemek, SQ2LYF. His antenna was small mobile vertical and only 2.5 watt output (!!).
What he is writing (by e-mail):

“”””” HI Genek
Thanks again for the qso. I was really happy.
I moved to other QTH last year and now my antenna contitions is… very poor.
Pleasesq2lyf4 see how I worked on pictures (RIG+ant). This was only a 2.5 W power and mobile antenna mounted not so high like You can see.
Many thanks for that qso and for qso’s on 6m earlier.. I have QSL from You.
I’m not a member of bureau but I confirms by LOTW
