(meteorobs) Beacon Transmitter

I am working to install a Beacon on a farm 36 Miles South of me (which may
be too close). Just like everything, it is a matter of money and time. Since
NAVSPASUR was turned off last September, I have missed being able to hear
Meteor Activity which I did for years. I was highly invested in monitoring
Meteor activity with NAVSPASUR. So I want to establish a Meteor RADAR Beacon
reference design so others can use the design to deploy many Beacons and
receivers. There are no Beacons near me, so I am desperate to build
something to satisfy my desire for Meteor Forward Scatter signals.
If I had the resources, I would develop Spatial Detection Arrays of Beacons
and receivers for mapping Meteor activity in 3d, but who am I to hope for
such a thing.

Fascinating paper, and hopefully inspiration for a lot more folks to build
beacons for this purpose. I notice that we're located nearly the perfect
distance apart for meteor scatter propagation. Do you currently have such a
beacon on the air that I could try to monitor?
