Station in Brazil
#1
In Brazil, there are two Blitzortung stations.  I work at a Research Institute and would like to meet a Blitzortung station to see how it works. Do you know who the person is responsible for the stations?



913 Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana

939 Rio de Janeiro, Fundão

Same here, albeit further away.
I live in Stockholm / Sweden & have just bought a Blue kit.
How can one find other users locally?

Sorry, folks...

So I would like to know who installed the station in Rio de Janeiro so I can take some doubts about its operation.

Dear Armando Camara, this is great to have you on Blitzordnung forum.
Blitzordnung needs your help to spread in Brazil., especially if you are a scientist.

To help in Brasil, are you aware of a national GNNS network (GPS positionning) or of a National Geodesian institute ? This kind of research institute usually have noise free sites with Internet access all around the country. I found this on the Internet:

Brasil: IBGE Brasil
http://www.ibge.gov.br/home/geociencias/...adual.shtm

Brasil map for GNNS with hundreds of receivers (I guess so, but I don't speak Brasilian):
http://ftp.geoftp.ibge.gov.br/informacoe...aduais.pdf

Adding a few lightning detectors on top a some GNNS should be easy.
GNNS receptors are very common and installation is comparable to a Blitzordung receiver (except that Blitzordnung receivers are NOT products).

Any direct contact with scientists at IBGE would be very useful if you would like to spread Blitzordnung.

In your case, the best would be to install a first station in your institute.
What kind of Information do you need?
