The activity and mass distribution of the summer daytime Taurid meteor complex streams Zeta Perseids and Beta Taurids in 1997-2004 is analysed and discussed. The results are based on radio observations obtained by the BLM forward-scatter system (Italy-Slovakia) and by the Ondrejov backscatter meteor radar (Czech Republic). The observed positions of maxima of the streams are in a general agreement with previous analysis. The observations indicate a filamentary structure of the streams, the existence of which is supported also by the mass exponent values.
