You can always start your research here: http://www.jb.man.ac.uk/meteor/
(You will find more links there)

It is stated that professional systems generally use frequencies between 40 MHz and 70 MHz, but that you can use any frequency between 30 MHz and 150 MHz.

It is also stated that the transmitter used must be distant enough to prevent direct reception of the signal. Either a transmitter that is shielded by a mountain, or a station which is between 600 km and 2000 km from you.

If you use google-maps, you can find a big city within that distance from you, and then look up which big radio-stations they may have in that city, and then use that as a frequency.

The GRAVES Radar at 143.050 MHz is often used for passive meteor detection in some parts of Europe.
