Title: SLR Hit Rate 2015
Post by: Toshimichi Otsubo on May 11, 2016, 04:38:42 AM
Hello from Tokyo.

The following link contains the quantity (not the quality) statistics for the productive 20 SLR stations last year.  Please have a look.

  Pass-based hit rate and Normal-point(NP)-based hit rate.
  Average number of normal points per pass.
  Average pass duration, defined as the time between the 1st and the last NP. (

Yarragadee's hit rates are really awesome.  Note that the hit rate of the microwave techniques will be almost 100%.

I would also like to point out that some stations do not (try to?) track a satellite for a long time as seen in Figure 3.  I think low orbiters should be observed from horizon to horizon unless there is a conflict with other low orbiters.
