A model based on some results from queueing theory is developed which takes into account the possibility of overlapping bursts in a meteor-burst (MB) communication system. Application of this model to a simple broadcast MB system shows that for meteor arrival rates that correspond to times of slowest meteor activity the assumption of non-overlapping bursts is justified, while for arrival rates corresponding to times of highest meteor activity the problem of overlapping trails may cause significant performance degradation.<>
