Radio spectrogram of the time of the above meteor.  61.250 MHz reception above white line, 83.250 MHz below white line.
Meteor reflection begins during the 0748 UT minute.

Due to time constraints I am posting a composite .gif of all the night's meteors and fireballs and will hopefully
archive each separate event when time permits.  -  TA
