  How are lightning strikes detected so that they can be displayed on maps online?
Posted by: kibolbugs43 - Yesterday, 10:01 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (1)

I've seen the UK Met Office display maps showing lightning strikes, and I sometimes use blitzortung.org when there's a thunderstorm nearby. How are the lightning strikes so accurately displayed? It looks like they're tracked by stations around the country, but how do these stations detect lightning strikes, sometimes many many miles away?

I have tried to look at a few posts that have been moved and I can't seem to view them. It seems to suggest I don't have the permissions. One for the IT team to look at.

  Station 2828 Running
Posted by: mendip_defender - 2020-10-11, 18:24 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Well I build mine the other weekend and have had it running for a bit now. Could do with some advice on how to interpret the data I am getting so that I can improve on my results.

Not get a lot of contacts so far but I haven't mounted anything in a final location. 

I am looking to design a build a holder for the Ferrite rods, I have 3 of them and was wondering is it best to lay them in a triangle as seen on some of the manual shots or mount them at 90 and the 3rd at 90 vertically? I have a laser cutter and plan to use that to cut out the brackets but before I design them has anyone else already done designs.

  My E-field antenna setup
Posted by: TomVal - 2020-10-11, 07:06 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (4)

            Hi, got my E-field antenna setup yesterday.

I clear coted the circuit board with a couple of clear varnish for extra protection against the elements. I protected the connectors with masking tape during the spaying.
The antenna is attached to a antenna pole on a steep high ground close my house.
