Leonid meteor shower activity observed in 1995-1996 by a forward scatter
radio system along two baselines is analysed and discussed. The overdense echo
maxima of echo duration larger or equal 8 s exhibit multiple peaks consistent
with similar backscatter radio and visual data, with three peaks at the solar
longitude 235.36 deg., 235.49 deg. and 235.57 deg. in 1995 and two peaks at
235.07 deg., 235.27 deg. (2000.0) in 1996. The mass distribution exponent s
derived for both Leonid returns shows a higher representation of larger
particles in the 1996 return (s=1.56) with respect to the 1995 return (s=1.69).
