today i watched live the thunder over germany as i saw long range green lines. well

i didnt know lf signals could travel that fast so far but norway... hello....
if i see that, i think the antenna has alot of options to be cheaper smaller in size...

does the system realy need stations from norway or Greek point thunderstrikes in Germany?

shouldent we instead of make the antenna bigger go the other way and build it smaller cheaper an without this range

well i i know the single one station in Japan would be happy we could give him some hits in his region but i think thats to far for the actual antenna...

Having the possibility to detect lightning strikes far away is useful for locations where the station density is minimal, compared to Central Europe where the station density is already sufficient.

I'm not completely sure what you meant by "if signals could travel that fast so far but norway", but the field disturbances propagate at the speed of light and such they would take only about 7ms or 0.007s to reach the northernmost station in Norway from the southern parts of Germany. That's a negligible delay compared to the system's delay which is around 1200-15000ms depending on the load. Norway isn't actually that far from Germany, I've seen stations in northern Finland pick up lightning strikes in Spain.

My bet is that the server picks which stations it uses for the calculation so that they are as evenly spread out on a circle as possible. In that case, a station further away is just as useful as a station closer to the location of the lightning strike.
