      Hello Daniel. It depends on if you are interested in High Speed Meteor Scatter (HSMS) or conventional voice (SSB) meteor scatter. For SSB, simply listen on

        Hello Daniel. It depends on if you are interested in High Speed Meteor
        Scatter (HSMS) or conventional voice (SSB) meteor scatter. For SSB, simply
        listen on the calling frequency. If there is no local activity, you may
        occasionally hear 'bursts' of signal from stations 600 to 1400 miles away,
        either calling CQ or chatting. These bursts may be as short as a partial
        syllable or any length up to a minute or more (very rare).

        For HSMS, you can hear activity on the HSMS calling frequencies (50.260 and
        144.140), but it is not decodable by ear. It sounds kind of like a BUZZ or
        sometimes like motorboating. You should download the program WSJT, and
        connect your receiver audio output to the sound card mic or line input on
        your computer. Then you will be able to decode the HSMS signals (use
        FSK441A mode).

        Just listening on one of the calling frequencies will work, but by
        monitoring the internet Ping Jockey page, you can observe stations making
        schedules and then tune to their specific frequency.

        Ping Jockey: http://www.pingjockey.net/cgi-bin/pingtalk
        WSJT: http://pulsar.princeton.edu/~joe/K1JT/

        Good luck!

        73, Russ K2TXB

        PS: Be sure to read the help file for WSJT!
