2008

The following colorgramme shows the radio meteor counts for the month of February 2008. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

Detection is operating on 55.25MHz, using a three element Yagi, bearing 180 deg ETN and 10 degree elevation.

2007

The following colorgramme shows the radio meteor counts for the month of February 2007. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

The counting computer was taken out of service on the 22nd February to perform other duties. A power failure during the early hours of the 28th February resulted in loss of data through to 08:00UT.

Detection is operating on 55.25MHz, using a three element Yagi, bearing 180 deg ETN and 10 degree elevation.

2006

The following colorgramme shows the radio meteor counts for the month of February 2006. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

There were a couple of significant meteor echoes recorded on the morning of 1st February 2006. These events may have been associated with the minor peak in counts at 09:00 UT on the 1st February 2006 312.28 solar longitude.  There were a many long meteor echoes recorded on the 7th February 2006

Detection is operating on 55.25MHz, using a three element Yagi, bearing 180 deg ETN and 10 degree elevation.

2005

The following colorgramme shows the radio meteor counts for the month of February 2005. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

The same information is presented as a daily rate in the chart below.

Meteor activity remains low throughout February 2005.

There was a daylight fireball reported on the 20th February 2005.

Detection is operating on 55.25MHz, using a three element Yagi, bearing 180 deg ETN and 10 degree elevation.

2004

The following colorgramme shows the radio meteor counts for the month of February 2004. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

 

Detection is operating on 55.25MHz, using a three element Yagi, bearing 180 deg ETN and 10 degree elevation.

2003

The following colorgramme shows the radio meteor counts for the month of February 2003. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

 

There is little activity throughout the month. There is a brief peak in the counts on the afternoon of the 25th February. This is most likely caused by another mode of propagation and is not indicative of meteor activity.
