Abstract: The theoretical radar meteors Range Distribution Model of the overdense echoes developed by Pecinová and Pecina (2007a) is applied here to observed range distributions of meteors belonging to the Quadrantid, Perseid, Leonid, Geminid, γ Draconid (Giacobinid), ζ Perseid and β Taurid streams to study the dependence of the ionization coefficient β on the meteoroid atmospheric velocity. The dependence in question is studied and confronted with the analogous dependence obtained by other authors. Also the mathematical form of a new dependence is evaluated and presented.
