Abstract

The meteor burst communications (MBC) technologies to identify, develop and utilize, amazing and essentially freely available communication resources, are discussed. A MBC network is organized with large base station (master station) with approximately 5,000 watts of radio power and a large antenna arrays is used in conjunction with any number of remote sites. The master station transmits a continuous, coded signal in a certain direction and angle, at a predetermined power level. It has been observed that, when a meteor appears with appropriate speed, size and trajectory (SST), it reflects the signal from the master station back down at the earth to the remote station.
