  Buying a receiver
Posted by: Yoggie - 2017-05-24, 11:58 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

Looking to set up a receiver to connect to the Blitzortung network.  Been looking at prices but keep getting different amounts in the prices.

So can anyone supply me with a ball park figure as to how much it will cost for the receiver.  The pricing and all the rest is getting my head to ache. Huh 

Thanks in dvance.

Bug lightningmaps.org - Archives:Search don't show points on map
Posted by: Elint - 2017-05-24, 11:32 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (2)

After login and selecting range to show strokes I can't see any point on the map. Below attached screenshot and link to web page:


What was wrong? Is problem with googlemaps API or with my configuration?

best regards

Station ID 1657
nach einer Überspannung durch Blitzeinschlag
sendet mein System Blu keine Signale mehr,
wie kann man prüfen ob es am Verstärker oder am Board liegt?
Das Board zeigt so kein Fehler an
Beide LED grün und GPS Takt.
Kann man den Verstärker einzeln bestellen?

Information State border of Namibia
Posted by: thorpe - 2017-05-21, 18:54 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (1)

Finding an old border around Walvis Bay in your map of Namibia, I looked up Wikipedia:
"Following the signing of a treaty between the two countries, South Africa formally transferred sovereignty of Walvis Bay ... to Namibia on 1 March 1994."
Please update! You're 23 years late! Wink
Greetings from Windhoek

ps. South Sudan is missing also!

  Smooth trace, smooth spectrum - strange
Posted by: hp3ak2 - 2017-05-19, 23:38 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (15)

I am a new user for 3 days now.  I notice that a few of my reporting waveforms and spectrum plots are what I would call "very smooth" compared to most reports from my station and all other stations that I have viewed.  The system seems to be receiving and using these observations, as well as my more "normal" waveforms for calculations.  Can anyone explain these beautiful, but odd waveforms?  They only seem to show up at a range of 3,000 km to maybe 3,300 km ... very strange.

I have attached a screen shot of a report.  -Or- they show up often enough that you should be able to view them:  Station 1838 in Volcan, Panama.  Thanks for any information that you can give me.

  School contacts
Posted by: LauristonGirlsGS - 2017-05-18, 13:14 - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

I teach Physics at Lauriston Girls' School in Melbourne, Australia. We are keen to get involved with Blitzortung for our STEM programme.

Are there any other schools taking part? If so, please contact us.

We have two available sites, one in Melbourne and the other in the countryside outside the city. It wouod be great to get a system running as soon as one becomes available. Perhaps some systems could be set aside for educational use.  Wink

While we wait for a system, could we please get access to raw data and analysis software so we can explore the physics and maths behind the system?

Best wishes

  Access to digitized data
Posted by: pasense - 2017-05-16, 12:11 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (2)

Maybe a stupid question, but is there a way to access the raw digitized data? The analog data can be accessed via the optional SMA connectors, but what about the digital signal? I am looking for an easy way to check the spectrum for noise sources.

Hi Guys!

I have bought a RED detector from another user.
He has forgotten login data to blitzortung, he doesn't even remember if it has ever been connected online - how to recover that?
Is that possible to add new user on that hardware?

What is worse, there is probably some error with the detector - the LCD screen is dead/dark/empty, but some diodes glow with the red light.
Someone had suggested for me to try to install new firmware for RED system.
Is that OK?
How can I download the firmware without the login/pass data??

I sincerely hope that you will spare sometime to answer the questions above
I'm looking forward to hearing from you
