Meteor Detection by radio scatter
LRO’s biggest success has been in detecting meteors by radio meteor scatter from Graves radar station in Dijon, France. After initial problems, Bill Watson, a local radio amateur in Lichfield joined the team and his expertise in amateur radio and in making aerials changed the situation dramatically. LRO now has a fixed permanent meteor detection station and a portable station perfect for demonstrating the technique at outreach events by Rosliston Astronomy Group (www.roslistonastronomy.org.uk)
