The performance of meteor burst communication at different ranges for a number of antenna configurations is analyzed. Characteristics of ideal antenna patterns for short- and long-range meteor scatter communication are described. An ideal antenna configuration matches its illumination pattern to the spatial arrival pattern of meteor trails. The analysis is used to compare the performance of several commonly used antenna configurations. It will be demonstrated that the characteristics of antennas which perform well at short ranges are different than those that perform well at long ranges
