Perseid Pings

Posted on

A bit of Radio Astronomy here…

Here are some of the meteor reflections from the GRAVES transmitter on 143.050Mhz last night during the Perseids Meteor Shower. The peaks can be heard as tuneful ‘pings’ when a meteorite enters the atmosphere. The pings are displayed using ‘SpectrumLab’ software. I am using my Yaesu FT857D along with a 5 element yagi set to 143.049Mhz and USB.
