Last night I make few QSOs on 2m (144.363) Meteor Scatter during the Geminids shower. 

The big surprise for me was the 2 Greek stations that I manage to work (SV6KRV and SV6KRW).

Conditions on band it's ideal the last 3 days with no QRN at all. Even the -audible only- weak signals was decoded. 

My setup is ICOM IC-7000 +13B2 Cushcraft 13 elements Yagi + MGF1302 ultra low noise preamplifier.

SV5KKR Experimental Remote Base...

As my FT-817 staying without any activity during winter time I decide to put it work on a remote base project.

 After my succesfull efforts last decade on remote stations (See on  and  and also ) the time for a public receiver comes.

I choose Remote Hams and make a request on my son's call after downloading  the neccessery Server software. All goes well and the system works just fine from the very first moment.  

Now the only thing you need is to download the Client Software from Remotehams and to play with receiver.....!!! (the register mail comes very fast)

Pse feel free to send me you comments and suggestions.
