I woke up at 3am to just try the radio n them, heard only 5 in 3 hours! damn location after the
sun rose I lost everything an we had hevy rain and just now it cleared up.
I heard that trees can interfer with radio listening thus my antenna is in a tree no options at all here.
plus location sucks.
So, my big thought is to just quit doing raidio observing, I've stopped telescope observing no were to
setup, so after 57 years.. that's all folks...

Just got in from a 1.25 hour pre-dawn watch under mostly top notch skies down at the Matanzas Inlet site. I didn't see any obvious candidates for the Daytime Arietids (ARIs), although I did see 14 total meteors during the session and had a lovely golden-yellow -3 Anthelion.
A couple of the sporadics did generally line up with the projected radiant, but it was still below the horizon at the time and their path length was all wrong for where I saw them in the sky, so I called them SPOs.
Oh well, the -3 ANT made the watch worthwhile and I'm just glad I had a chance to get out at all and look or them, considering 24 hours earlier, I was caught in a TS Colin torrential downpour! . Did anyone else have any luck catching any?
