Whilst I slept, my automated radio reflection meteor detector recorded this Perseid. Equipment was a homemade 2.4mtr dipole aerial taped to the rafters in my garage fed to a RF amplifier connected to an ICOM PC-R1000 scanning receiver tuned to 62.25MHz (Skalafell TV transmitter in Iceland). The sound is analysed using Spectrum Labs on a netbook and I can listen to the "pings" anywhere using Ventrilo audio server
