To put some perspective on station densities there are zero stations within a radius of 1100km of my station in North Queensland, Australia.  Relative to this just about anywhere in Europe is saturated with stations.

Hi, I don't say you are wrong, but the wide distance between stations in Australia is just a consequence of the sparsely populated country. In Germany roughly one out of 400000 people operates a Blitzortung station, in Australia one out of 500000 people operates a Blitzortung station. This is roughly the same order of magnitude.

A comparison:

Australia:
- population 24,955,800; area 7,692,024 km² => 3.2 people/km²
- active Blitzortung stations: 50 => 1 station / 499116 people; 1 station / 159240 km²

Germany:
- population 82,800,000; area 357,168 km2 => 232 people/km²
- active Blitzortung stations: 204 => 1 station / 405882 people; 1 station / 1751 km²
Stations: 2065 2729
