Abstract: An overview of the radio observations during June 2022 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 June 2022.
The hourly numbers, for echoes shorter than 1 minute, are weighted averages derived from:
Local interference and unidentified noise remained moderate to low for most of the month, but observations were sometimes difficult due to intense lightning activity (on 9 different days) and near-daily strong solar eruptions and even noise storms. This solar activity was obviously interesting in itself.
The general meteor activity was quite high, with the well-known daytime showers during the whole month which showed a clear maximum with the Arietids on June 8th in terms of overdense reflections.
This month, 13 reflections of more than 1 minute were observed. SpecLab-pictures of a selection of these and some other interesting reflections are attached. (Figures 3 to 13).
In addition to the usual graphs, you will also find the raw counts in cvs-format from which the graphs are derived.
The table contains the following columns: day of the month, hour of the day, day + decimals, solar longitude (epoch J2000), counts of “all” reflections, overdense reflections, reflections longer than 10 seconds and reflections longer than 1 minute, the numbers being the observed reflections of the past hour.
