      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

      Good luck!

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