Ok, now we're cookin' with gas.  Here's what 'ya got to work with...

Bob, I've taken the information that you found on the web about several (commercial?) meteor-scatter stations that seem to operate successfully and re-presented the data in chart format for easier comparison.


Freq  Pwr    Antenna Data  Msg.  RX    DX to  Success  Rate
             Gain    Rate  Size  Stns  RX stn Min/hr Max/hr
(MHz) (W)    (dBd)  (kbd)  (b)   (#)   (mi)   (full deliveries)
----- ----   -----   ----  ----  ---  -----   ----    ----

38     200   10+10      2   150    1    600     18      46
38     400   10+10      2    50    1    500     15      60
38     400   10+10           50    1   1000      8      30
38     600    2+10      2   130    4    600    360    1200
38    2000    6+12          130       4-900     75     240
46     750    0+11      2                       12      30 (June)

The questions are many, but this can serve as a first step to know what has been successful in the past so as to know what to engineer for future duplication in the Amateur service.

I have what I hope to be constructive input...but will share a bit later in the day.

Kind regards,
Ev, W2EV
