Activities and radiants of meteor showers detected by radio equipments at Adelaide from 1952 to 1956 are summarized. A composite picture of shower and sporadic meteor activity is compared with a similar picture compiled from northern hemisphere radio counts. The distribution of the radiants of the more important showers reveals a pronounced concentration to the ecliptic, with a component extending to high latitudes.
