Re: MS technique questions

Don't know where you got the info from about the kappa-serpentids, but it was incorrect. The next meteor shower is the Lyrids which peak on 22nd April at 07:00 UTC. The K-Serpentids are a minor shower with a ZHR of only 4 Hi, Yes, the k-serpentids are already over and are a minor one. If I said som...

Re: MS technique questions

Thank you you Peter, I asked Simon for the possibility to put the buffer recording feature back to Console v3. As you pointed out, it is essential for Meteor DX. I have been using SDRPlay RSP1A for k-serpentids. In the quiet rural place where I live, sensitivity is a plus with no front-end overload...

Re: MS technique questions

Hello Jorge and all. When looking for Meteor Scatter live, I prefer to use SDR Console V2.3. This has a de facto "meteor scatter mode". One can set a buffer of up to 30 seconds (I use 10 seconds), chose a folder, the all you need to do when you see a meteor burst is click the red record button. The...

Re: 339km Aircraft Scatter 1kW station

Hello Jorge,
Aircraft scatter builds slowly, becomes strong then decays slowly. Total duration is around two minutes. Meteor scatter is usually shorter duration and starts and/or ends suddenly. Meteor scatter tends to be longer distances than aircraft scatter.

Re: Afedri LAN-IQ standalone SDR

There is also a version without the touchscreen that is a bit cheaper. Can be bought in the box or just the completed circuit board.

Meteor scatter, very pingy this morning

Anyone else notice that MS became very pingy this morning after 0900 UTC (after 11am my time)? I was getting better than 1 ping per minute, but only of the under-dense variety (less than 1 second). Pity they weren't over-dense type (greater than 1 second. My "hot" frequency was the most affected. (9...
