Abstract: The initial results of a new cycle (since 2016) of meteor observations in Kazan (56°N 49°E) which is associated with equipping of Kazan Federal University (KFU) with the new meteor radar SKiYMET are given. Simultaneously with the processing of experimental data using the built-in (native) software SKiYMET, the processing was performed using the new software developed in KFU. A comparative analysis showed a significant increase in the number of registrations due to the processing of meteors that are weaker with signal-to-noise ratio. The seasonal and daily dependencies of the meteor number for the period 2016-2019 are given. The obtained distributions of entry meteor speeds and their dependencies by seasons and heights of meteor trails are separately considered. The method of data processing for obtaining coordinates of meteor shower radiants in the equatorial coordinate system is described. The results of observations of the Geminids, Eta Aquariids, Arietids, April Lyrids, Northern and Southern Daytime Omega-Cetids, Daytime Lambda Taurids and Daytime Arietids meteor showers are presented.
