Radio observations of the 1995 Lyrid meteor shower by a forward scatter
system on the baseline Bologna-Lecce (Italy) are analyzed and discussed. The
1995 Lyrids have shown a distinct maximum only for overdense echoes (echo
duration >1s) with the peak rate on April 23, 03 UT (solar longitude 31.88 deg,
eq. 1950). The flux of underdense echoes (duration <1s) appears to be very
variable; the smallest particles (<0.07s) follow the trend of the overdense
stream activity with an exceptional peak at solar longitude 29 deg (April 20)
and can be ascribed to some kind of fragmentation.
