Meteors are lumps of rock which are floating about in space. There are always meteors which are entering the earth’s atmosphere. They normally burn up in the atmosphere. A few very large ones may hit the earth. Most meteors are only tiny specks of dust. As they enter the atmosphere they rip off electrons. This produces an ionized trail. This trail can reflect radio waves in the same way that a wire would.
Meteor bursts can be used as a short term means of communication, Meteor burst communication is a way of communicating using the ionized trails made by meteors as they enter the earth’s atmosphere.
