Radio Meteor ObservationsThe society also has links to members observatories near Lincoln. The 'Hykeham Observatory' runs a radio meteor set up 24/7. On this page is live information from that observatory.The images are the doppler frequency and amplitude vs time of the ionised trail left by a meteor in the upper atmosphere.There are two radios running. Both receive signals using the GRAVES transmitter in France. The 10 dB antenna plot for this system meets the height of the ionised area above Grantham. It fans out south passing over the coast of the UK above Bournemouth and east of Ipswich. The receiver picks up signals as far away as the Mediterranean Sea. All times on this page are GMT. For live views from the vertical system please follow this link. Vertical System Unfortunately, the upload facility is suffering from an intermittent fault but usually restarts itself within five minutes. Please refresh this page on each visit or wait one minute for this to happen automatically. For more information on the observatory.

This is the current "live" waterfall
image. Frequency is across the top axis and time down the left hand side.
S/N is a measure of the brightness of the object whilst Dur is a measure
of the duration of the trail.
Some trails have been known to last over a minute.
