    I've been seeing some disagreement in T/R duration for 6M meteor scatter.

    Any consensus?

    I've had good success with anything from 5 secs to 15 secs.

    It seems 15s is what mostly is used by People announcing/ chatting on Ping Jockey when running MSK144.

    I was kinda' debating this in my mind, thinking 5 secs might be enough to complete 2 aspects of the contact as the trail persists, but 15s would up the odds of getting the initial ping.

    I have used 30s as well for MS. 5s is too short but 5sec is a hoot when there is eskip .
