An overview of the radio observations during February 2021 is given.
The graphs show both the daily totals (Figure 1) and the hourly numbers (Figure 2) of “all” reflections counted automatically, and of manually counted “overdense” reflections, overdense reflections longer than 10 seconds and longer than 1 minute, as observed here at Kampenhout (BE) on the frequency of our VVS-beacon (49.99 MHz) during the month of February 2021.
The hourly numbers, for echoes shorter than 1 minute, are weighted averages derived from:
Local interference and unidentified noise was quite strong at times, but no lightning activity was detected.
This month there were no eye-catching showers and overall meteor activity was low and declining over the month, but the activity of a few minor showers was clearly noticeable.
Only 5 reflections of more than 1 minute were observed here during this month.
A selection of striking or strong reflections is attached (Figures 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10).
If you are interested in the actual figures, or in plots showing the observations as related to the solar longitude (J2000) rather than to the calendar date, I can send you the underlying Excel files and/or plots. Please send me an e-mail; felix.verbelen at skynet.be.
