2007

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

Data lost to abnormal propagation conditions at the following times:

2007 10 13 22:00 UT - 2007 10 14 21:00 UT (inclusive)

2007 10 23 11:00 UT - 2007 10 23 13:00 UT (inclusive)

Some additional short periods with adverse propagation conditions noted in the last quarter of the month.

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

The Orionids are responsible for the peak of activity around 21/22nd October.

The Zenith logging computer was replaced by a Dell Latitude on the 2nd October 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 October 2005. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT). 

There was a reported outburst from the Camelopardalids on the 5th October 2005 (not seen in my results). You can read the report into this outburst here.

The Orionids are responsible for the peak of activity around 21/22nd October.

2004

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

The Orionids are responsible for the peak of activity around 21/22nd October

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

 

The peak around the morning of the 6th October is most likely due to the delta Aurigids (DAU) stream. The cause of brief burst of activity on the evening of the 8th of October may be due to the Giacobinid (GIA), also known as the October Draconids, but this is not certain. The Orionids are responsible for the peak of activity around 21/22nd October. Data from the 25th to 26th October was corrupted by electrical interference and has been removed. The loss of data on the evening of the 29th October and the peak on the evening of the 30th October were not due to meteor activity, but to ionisation of the upper atmosphere caused by a coronal mass ejection from the Sun. This same event also caused widespread aurora.

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

2002

The following colorgramme shows the radio meteor counts for the month of October 2002. The horizontal axis shows the date and the vertical axis the local time (UT).

 

The two discrete peaks on the 28th and 29th October are not attributable to any known meteor stream.
