Abstract: 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.
