Thank you for your reply. I understand the limitations of radio meteor detection and the differences there are between different radio observers (IMO talk about this). I too produce continuous counts allowing me to detect the diurnal and seasonal change in the background non-shower echoes and of course the shower peaks. There are also the results from daytime showers that are cannot observed by video or visual observers. Are these of scientific value to the meteor community (at BAA) ?
You suggest that radio meteor detection are used as a adjunct to visual/video observers, but how are they used in their studies? Would I be right then to assume that the only use of radio meteor data is when it is used in this way and that continuous records are of no separate scientific value?
