2008

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

The Quadrantids are seen to peak on the 3rd and 4th January 2008. There is a more detailed analysis of this shower here.

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 January 2007. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

The Quadrantids are seen to peak on the 3rd and 4th January 2007. There is a more detailed analysis of this shower here.

Suffered a system failure (full hard disk) on 10th January. Corrected and restarted on the 11th January. Data lost to sporadic E on the afternoon of the 24th January.

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 January 2006. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

The Quadrantids are seen to peak on the 3rd and 4th January 2006. 

Somewhat surprisingly, the target transmitter was received directly, by non-meteoric propagation, during the afternoon of the 7th January 2006. The resultant elevated counts have been removed.

There were several larger radio meteor events recorded by European observers during January 2006. There was a long echo at approximately 09:14 UT on the morning of 12th January 2006. A second significant event was seen over Europe in the early hours of 15th January 2006. This was recorded by several European observers. There were several long echoes recorded during the morning of 26th January 2006.

Established high-pressure resulted in tropospheric ducting on the afternoon of the 29th January and during 31st January. Both occasions resulted in loss of data.

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 January 2005. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

The 2005 Quadrantids are seen to peak on the 3rd January. A coronal mass ejection from Sunspot 720 swept past the Earth on the 21st January. This resulted in local aurora and the increased counts for the hour 19:00 - 20:00 on 21st January.

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 January 2004. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

The 2004 Quadrantids are seen to peak some time between 05:00 and 06:00 on the 4th of January. Results from Jan 24th onwards have been removed because of interference and other problems.

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 January 2003. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

 

The 2003 Quadrantids are seen to peak some time between 02:00 and 03:00 on the 4th of January.
