How do I find the status page in the controller so I can get the "Device ID"  and then log in and get an account?

  Interference mode notification needed
Posted by: cbhiii - 2017-04-27, 01:59 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - No Replies

I'm trying to track down an intermittent interferer that is being picked up by my H-field antennas.

The trouble is that I have no way to be notified that the interference has return unless I just happen to be by the unit or logged into the units webpage.

Am I overlooking a was of having the unit notify me somehow so I can know when to start my troubleshooting?

  E-Field Antenna and 60 Hz power lines
Posted by: waysta - 2017-04-24, 20:14 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (4)

Thinking about antennas, before I have the system:

How far away from the top power line (residential street HV to the pole transformer) do I need to be?  How much 60 Hz rejection does the Blue system have?

  national radio quiet zone site
Posted by: davidsaroff - 2017-04-24, 18:19 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

I will build a system and operate it in the US national radio quiet zone that includes the Green Bank radio telescope observatory, in Green Bank, West Virginia. The data stream will be made available to the astronomers using the telescope, and to the operators of the telescope through the observatory data taking system. Astronomers will use the data to help excise terrestrial noise and interference. The operators will use it to enhance the safety of the telescope. I am a retired Silicon Valley chip designer and radio designer, now working in radio astronomy. When can I tell the observatory I may be receiving a kit?

  Shield the E-probe?
Posted by: Max_Headroom - 2017-04-22, 14:54 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (4)

Gentlemen & members!

Judging from my question, it will be evident I have a very dim view of antenna theory, so pls be gentle...

I live on the top floor of a high rise with a great view of my city.
I plan to place both the ferrite antennas & E-probe on the balconny.

However, living as I do, I assume there is plenty of sources of interference coming from lower floors.

Question: is it possible to build a shielding around the probe in the (potentially) offending sectors?

Sad Remote configuration errors

I trust this should not be happening:


I have the System Blue registered...I think. Dodgy

Earlier today my station ID appeared here.  Now it doesn't

Ideas anyone?

  Waiting List Time
Posted by: waysta - 2017-04-21, 23:49 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)


  I signed up for the blue system waiting list at over 1,500.  How many kits do you manufacture at one time?

  Can you estimate the wait time months?, years?

  Looking forward to joining the network if possible.  Looks like I might help to fill-in an open area in my state (NY, between Rochester and Albany).

  Password Problem

When I go to the Forum I can enter my username/Email address and the password and I can get in.  However when I try to log in to http://www.blitzortung.org/login.php the system will not accept my password.  Are these passwords different or is there something else I have to put in?

  HOW to register/activate my new system blue??
Posted by: N0BGS - 2017-04-20, 21:54 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

OK, so I spent HOURS last night trying to find the answer to what must be a very simple question--but no joy. Extremely frustrating. Surely this must be prominently posted in multiple locations in a FAQ but I can't find it. WHY is this so hard to find? Yep, read through all the system red and blue docs--not there. Searched the blitz forums--nope.

So please someone, exactly how and where do you add a new system blue to the blitz network?

I would think here: http://en.blitzortung.org/login.php (just wild guessing) but when I enter my blitzortung.org forum username and pw it tells me that it is wrong. If I enter a different email address (more wild guessing) and enter the ID of my system blue from the detectors web interface the page just blinks at me and goes back to the login.  [Image: eusa_wall.gif] Same result no matter what browser I use.
