Nearly all fast rotating radio transients (RRAT) that are pulsars with rare pulses have previously been detected using decimeter wavelengths. We present here 34 transients detected at meter wavelengths in our daily monitoring at declinations −9° ≤ δ ≤ +42°. Twenty-five transients are new RRATs. We confirm the detection of 7 RRATs based on our early observations. One of the 34 detected transients was determined to be a new pulsar, J1326+3346. At the same time, of the 35 RRATs detected at the decimeter wavelengths in the studied area, only one was detected by us, J1848+1518. The periods of 6 RRATs were found from the arrival time of single pulses. Three quarters of all RRATs were observed more than once, and the total number of RRATs in the area we studied has doubled.
