  Two Issues so far...Fault light & Request Acct.
Posted by: Mike - 2018-12-01, 19:27 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (10)


Finished installing all the components onto the System Blue board.....  I purchased the alum. box with my kit and when I use the on/off switch which is connected to the jumper of pin 5 and 6 I get the fault light on.....to get rid of this I push the reset button on the System Blue board and the Power and Mode lights just come on.....I can connect my gps and after just a minute the blue gps light flashes on and off continually.  I then connected my network cable and the green network lite comes on steady and the lights at the network connection work as they should...green on steady and yellow flashes randomly.  

I can't find the "request and account".  I enter the IP address of my board in my browser, login and can see everything...Status, Settings, Tools, Signals, etc.... Under Settings/Network  I find Web Interface where I checked "Need authentication:" and put the same username and password that I used to get into my IP (not sure if this is what there looking for) address and clicked on Apply...but I'm not getting an email with the information I need.....sooo I think I'm in the wrong area here...

So where is the "request and account

Thanks for all your help...

  Lightningmaps.org still semi-active after 1 month
Posted by: dalex - 2018-11-25, 11:46 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (2)

It's being a month now, and the data flow from the server(s) to Lightningmaps.org has not been restored...

[Last update: 44,630 minutes ago]

Some of the information is correct, e.g. [Strokes Detected], station's [Last Update], etc.

All the rest stays "frozen" at the status of the problem day, October 25th.

Do we have any hope to see our (and others) data active before the New Year?  I know that is not a commercial operation, and developer staff has a life to live too, but ONE month?

How can WE help?

  Hello from Ireland
Posted by: Danno - 2018-11-17, 14:41 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

Hi All - newbie from Ireland here,

I'm interested in purchasing the kit for lightning detection. I currently have the Boltek and Nexstorm for the last few years but I'm not overly impressed with its accuracy and feel that it's time for a change, so I have a few questions:

Is there somewhere that sells the kit "ready made"?
Are there recommended guidelines for locating the detector?
Is there a USB connection for PC?

Any information would be greatly welcomed.

  E-Mail to forum members ends in failure notice
Posted by: afram - 2018-11-14, 17:12 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Hi everybody,

I´ve tried to send an e-mail to a forum member. It constantly ends up with this notice:

You do not have permission to access this page. This could be because of one of the following reasons:

  1. Your account has either been suspended or you have been banned from accessing this resource.
  2. You do not have permission to access this page. Are you trying to access administrative pages or a resource that you shouldn't be? Check in the forum rules that you are allowed to perform this action.
  3. Your account may still be awaiting activation or moderation. (Resend Activation Code)
  4. You have accessed this page directly rather than using appropriate forms or link.
You are currently logged in with the username: 'afram'

Any hint how to avoid this?

  Accra station fails to connect
Posted by: afram - 2018-11-12, 19:49 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (9)

Station 1592 has been installed properly six months ago in a location in Accra/Ghana which provides reliable network. The issue is that it got never contacted to it. Before it worked well for some weeks of testing at different places in Ghana using a mobile router.
I recently tested again under the some conditions as it worked before using that mobile router. But now I´m not even able to enter the admin´s menu under 192.168.xxx.xx while the indicator lights are presenting some strange pattern as following.
When switching on the device, first Fault and Alarm indicators are on. After some seconds Power, Mode, Network and GPS indicators are on (but the GPS doesn´t flash first when searching for satellites). And now, every some 30 seconds the Mode, Network and GPS indicators go out for a split second followed by a short double-flash of the Signal indicator.
Any ideas how to fix the problem with in-house means here in Ghana. Or is it to be taken back for repair?

Thanx for any help provided.

Exclamation Station Isn't Recognized. Not on List. ETC
Posted by: Cutty - 2018-11-05, 22:47 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (23)

Because of the server issues, many new stations, and some older ones are not registering, or have lost registration...

If you have any problems along those lines, or your participant status hasn't updated to 'operator' on the Forum...
KEEP IT SIMPLE let's provide the developers with a quick reference for resolution....
User Name for Forum
Station Number if you have one.
Region... (Europe, Asia, etc...)

Specify specific... don't enter a lot of comments... just the facts, please....
'station not listed',
Forum operator status not upgraded,.
Station Number NOT associated with my User ID...
Station WAS there, but now is missing.

Don't complain on this thread... post it elsewhere... this is for FIXING... KEEP IT SIMPLE....
THIS IS NOT for other website issues... posts outside the above format will be edited or deleted... Big Grin

  map_generator.php not working
Posted by: Ken.True - 2018-11-01, 21:24 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (6)

It seems the http://en.blitzortung.org/map_generator.php now only times-out with a 504-Gateway Time-out error message.

Could bringing that back up be added to the 'To Do' list of tasks?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Quote:In the last few days there have been some problems with our servers. Please understand that not everything is working properly at the moment.

Das im Zitat genannte Problem bezieht es sich auch auf MyBO?
Weil, es funktioniert nicht mehr bei mir.
Es verarbeitet keine Blitzdaten und Karten, sowie die Statistik ist eingefroren.
