The results and approaches of meteor scatter observation in RI NAO by using of radio method are represented in the article. The radio-technical equipment and processing method for detecting of meteors echo reflected from meteor trail in automatic mode are described. Statistic analyses of received data are given.

Keywords: meteor observations; radio signal processing
