I understand that now.
So I don't know if I will continue entering he current meteor shower or not?
Guess I might as well since it doesn't have any meaning even if it's wrong.

...and if you set the propagation mode, you are only guessing. Just because an MSK144 qso took place during a shower, does not mean it wasn't lite Es, ionoscatter or tropo ducting or even F2. (far fetched right now)
We have been testing ionoscatter on 6m lately and have observed meteor pings, lite E skip, and tropo ducting all during the same qso.
The actual mode is a complete guess, and there is no way to verify any mode for any award. In other words, the entry is your opinion for your own consumption.
It would be different for EME, of course, there you know the prop mode with a very high degree of confidence.
It has no standing with anyone else.
