  Flashing networks led
Posted by: Alanpenwith - 2018-03-19, 13:45 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - No Replies

Hi All
Blue system 
Suddenly the network led has started flashing on/off at about 1 second intervals. The led keeps on flashing even with the network unplugged. An IP scanner shows up the IP and noise floor switched on shows a continuous trace.
Any ideas ?

  Radar Interference
Posted by: Alanpenwith - 2018-03-08, 08:48 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (8)

I quite often compare my performance with others fairly close to me on Signal vs Strikes.
I was looking at the statistics for Bridport Dorset UK which is a station not too far from me and noticed how many thousands of signals were produced.
Looking at the signal graph it shows regular E signals and I wondered if a nearby radar installation, maybe at Royal Navy Air Station at Yeovilton, was the cause.
Has anybody else noticed anything similar.

Hi All
I have my antenna on a window sill where it seems to get best reception. I recently put a new mobile wifi hub within a couple of hundred centimetres and it, I think, created huge interference. Moving it away to about 1/2 metre and the interference looks as though it has stopped. I have no idea why it should happen but it might be a clue for others.

  Blue System: PreAmp & Antenna Questions
Posted by: BassJohn - 2018-02-27, 18:38 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (5)


I'm on the last legs of setting up my Blue system and have some questions.

1) On the pre-amp board are the connectors A-1,A-2 and B-1,B-2 relate to the vertical antennas?
2) On the pre-amp board is the connector C-1,C-2 for the optional horizontal antenna?
3) I intend to use my loop antenna I had on my Green system, Which I was under the impression it did not matter which way it pointed, is this still so?
4) On the Green system the loop antenna windings were wound in a certain direction, and had to be wired up to the Green pre-amp the correct way, is this still so for the Blue system, if so which end of the loop goes to which connector (1, 2) ?

Regards John

  Lightning Data Access
Posted by: GHinchey - 2018-02-27, 16:03 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (3)

Hello there.

I'm a college student in my senior year looking to complete my research to acquire my degree.  My research project revolves around lightning strike forecasting and the verification of those forecasting products.  I'm looking for a way to access the lightning strike database this community has built over the years.  I see that I can pull down some imagery of the various strikes, but I really would like to have the raw strike data so that I may plot it versus another data source.

It looks like only contributors are allowed access to this data.  My question is do I need to have an active lightning detector to be a contributor or can I donate towards the cause?  I've been wanting a System BLUE for some time now and I'm on the waiting list to get one.   

If there's any questions regarding my request please let me know.

  Access to archive data to trace 3 Sprites
Posted by: greg_priestley - 2018-02-20, 00:30 - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies


Is there any way that a non-contributor can get access to raw data?

On 16 December 2017 I photographed 3 lightning sprites over a 20 minute period, and wanted to try and more precisely identify where these sprites occurred.  I've been able to run the map:


but would really love access to the raw data so that I don't have to approximate everything from the map.

Would one of the contributors be able to extract the relevant raw data and provide to me (if this is not against the terms of service, etc)?  I really want the data for the above map and time period but it could be limited to 149E to 153E, 29S to 33S.

Thanks in advance

  GREEN stations
Posted by: ThomasSc - 2018-02-18, 12:50 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)


has the TOA System GREEN support of your servers already ended? If not, when will they be finally taken out of the computations of lightning strikes (see the announcement in the beginning of this thread in 2015).

I ask because I cannot connect to the server anymore.

In the meantime, I have set up a System RED (ID #34) and recently a System BLUE at the same location and they work without any problem.

Best regards,

  Blitzortung data on Windy.com
Posted by: Windy.com - 2018-02-12, 16:25 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (19)


I am Ivo founder of http://www.windy.com, non-commercial weather website.

We have radar overlay for USA and now we are finishing radar overlay for part of Europe (where the data are open). As we understand lightning data are CC. We would like to use them on Windy.com on real time basis and also donate to Blitzortung some amount. So far I have not found any API endpoints, or some description how to connect to data.

Is there someone willing to help?
