Short summary
We investigated the zonal and meridional momentum flux at 86–94 km using two nearly identical sets of meteor radar observation data at Koto Tabang and Biak in Indonesia (both at the Equator) by applying a method proposed by Hocking (2005). The observed zonal momentum flux at the two sites agreed reasonably well at 86, 90, and 94 km during the observation periods when the data acquisition rate was large enough. Our results suggest the usefulness of the Hocking method.
