Results from the observations of the Leonid meteor shower in 1996-2002 by the BLM (Bologna-Lecce-Modra) forward-scatter radio system for meteor observation carried out along two baselines, Bologna-Lecce (Italy)and Bologna-Modra (Slovakia), are presented and discussed. The activity curves of long-duration echoes (≥ 8 s)and their variations indicate multiple peak activity which are attributed to filamentary structure of the stream. The mass distribution exponents in the period of the shower maximum shows significant changes in individual years, with a high contribution of larger particles chiefly in 1998.
