In this paper the changes of the orbital elements of stationary satellites due to meteor-impacts are discussed. From these changes in principle one should be able to draw the conclusion whether or not there exist a correlation between meteor-mass and velocity.It has been shown here, how to detect and estimate an increase in space-density and the velocity-vector of any meteor stream T  which the satellite traverses. Numerical results, however, show that effects of meteor-impacts  can be neglected at all.
