Hi Kim:

 Nope, the US is gone digital last year and my meteor rates plummeted!
I count on Canada but now end Aug/Sept.1 we go digital.

 FM is too difficult from Halifax, I tried to listen to a WGBH in
Boston but we have a station here too strong on that frequency and
it just walks over them. Actually we have too many FM crap stations
here that are bunched in FM that some US ones are on :(

 I tried the other metioned frequencies posted here 40.67MHz and
one in Canada near Ottawa at 38.15 MHz but no luck, either too low
power or just too far from me.

 Also, I am very limited to what size antenna I can put on my balcony
and the new owner would not be happy with a big Yagi!

 My data is stored at Radio Meteor Observing Bulletin:


 check the text archives, you can enter the year and month and all data
from those who send it in are there.
