METEORSCATTER



The station was created at the end of 2013 with the aim of identifying and cataloging the meteor passing in our area and joins the already
earlier VLF station for detecting SID (Sudden Ionospheric Disturbance) .

Using Doppler effect of objects passing through the signal of Graves radar transmitting pure carrier at 143.050 MHz and captured in Turin
with a simple receiver Icom ICR 1500 in CW with a discone antenna .

All is connected to a 16 bit soundcard and a server that stream online data each minute : http://www.sidmonitor.net/gallery/station2.html
The software used is Spectrum Lab : http://www.qsl.net/dl4yhf/spectra1.html

The main purpose is to be able to detect the correspondence between the passage of meteors or atmospheric phenomena in the
VHF ,in the optical and even in the VLF. We then added in order to have a relationship in the field of optics a Moonglow All Sky
Camera that should allow a panoramic view of the sky from the station itself.

As we can clearly see many traces of planes that reflect their Doppler signal on the main spectrum, we added the free FlightRadar
useful application that allows you to see live aircraft tracked in our area.
