Live Radio Meteor Detection

Posted by Dave Jones at 12:01 on 2012 Dec 20

For all that wish to see radio meteor detection "live" that works no matter what the weather you are welcome to view the S.P.A.M. Network (Solar Planetary And Meteor) that runs live 24/7 at www.merriott-astro.co.uk/spam3d.htmWe have recently added a live audio feed link (although this is experimental at the moment) where you can listen to the audio feed from the Merriott (Somerset) station.any feedback would be very much appreciated.ThanksDave Jones

Thank you Dave,I'm listening now at 06:37 and there appears to be a lot going on, from the Quadrantid shower, that peaks today.

WOWI was listening from work around lunchtime, and the screens were alive.Probably the best display I have witnessed in over a year of running a detection station.How was the sound Paul? did it stream smoothly?Dave

Hi Dave,Yes everything was OK. Between 0637 and 0650. I heard a lot of pings, some were very loud, whilst other were fainter.I suspect the louder ones where over your station?

Hi PaulDetermining the actual location / trajectory is not something that we at the SPAM group have managed to nail down yet, if it is even possible at all. But any thoughts gladly considered :o)From the network we can look at detections and see differences around the country that show us at times that the detection is centered closer to a particular area of the country, so we do postulate that this may give us an idea of basic areas of where the meteor occurred.
