By using the diversity factor as a measure of the link correlation in a meteor-burst communications system, performance bounds for the network waiting time of meteor burst networks are found. It is shown that the performance of a meteor burst network can degrade significantly when the diversity factor is low unless a means of processing multiple responses per trail is provided. A code-division multiple-access system is shown to be one means of providing and allocating additional capacity for processing multiple responses. Significant reductions in the waiting time of the system are obtained
