The Russian TV-carrier on 49.750.00 MHz can also be used (in Europe) to monitor Es and meteor activity. When listening for meteor "pings" the receiving frequency in CW mode should be set to 49.750.00 MHz or in USB mode 49.749.50 MHz. "Pings" and sometimes longer lasting "pings" are always heard, even when there are no well-known meteor showers happening.
