  Location on Live Lightning Map
Posted by: SteveQlQ - 2021-04-18, 16:31 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (1)

Hi..This is a minor "problem", but I just noticed this. If I click on "Locates the user on the map" a blue dot comes on which is very close to my actual location. However the icon with my station number is not in the same place; sometimes close and other times a few miles away (and it changes). Is this normal?

Thanks, Steve

  Problems displaying historical lightning data?
Posted by: Rain - 2021-04-16, 16:43 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

Hi there,

I have been having difficulty loading past lightning data on LightningMaps for at least over a month now, at the following link: https://www.lightningmaps.org/. Using this link, please try to select a day when lightning was known to occur in your area and see if anything appears (or if the correct amount of observed lightning appears like it should). At times, lightning dots would appear, but then some are noticeably missing or are only partially shown. In other cases, they would disappear randomly when zooming into the map.

In general, the dots that represent detected lightning strikes do not appear when clicking on the relevant day. I have tried different browsers and the problem persists, and I have tried on different computers. Could there be an internal problem? If so, would it be rectified soon? 

Thank you, and I look forward to your response concerning this issue. Any feedback would be so greatly appreciated!

Smile Does Anyone have system Red PCB file?
Posted by: Karol614 - 2021-04-06, 18:21 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

good evening I have been using blitzortung storm maps for two years and finally decided to build my own lightning detection station. The problem is that I am only in the queue for the blue system until 1480, which means that in a few years I will receive the blue system. so I decided to undertake the construction of the red system.
Unfortunately I can't find the necessary software components anywhere, and especially the pcb file. is it possible to find these files somewhere, or are they not available?
Will it be a problem when registering a station that I am not in the Age of majority?
Thank you very much for your help! Have a nice evening Karol614 Lightning

  construction manual for magnetic antenna
Posted by: Hope70 - 2021-03-30, 05:53 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

I want to ask the community if there is a manual for build own high sensitive magnetic antennas.

I am from Austria and just working to create my self made "blue system" with KICAD (new layout, new BOM etc) because it is hard to get a kit to buy at these days......

On the german forum web site there are some docs they show the different types of antennas (E/H field) but no construction manual of the magnetic rod antenna (wire on ferrit in plastic pipe enclosure)

Maybe somebody can support

Exclamation Servers Damaged (Mostly affecting LMO ?)
Posted by: cutty - 2021-03-10, 19:13 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (5)

A fire early today has destroyed one of OVHcloud’s Strasbourg data centres and part of a second one, the French cloud provider’s CEO, Octave Klaba, wrote in a tweet. He confirmed that all the people working at the site were safe.
OVHcloud is the biggest European-based cloud services provider, competing against U.S. giants Amazon Web Services, Microsoft’s Azure and Google Cloud, which dominate the market.

Major issues with our adjunct, lightningmaps.org.
Info is LMO will be offline for several days.

BT servers seem ok at this Posting time.

Exclamation Suche System RED oder BLUE
Posted by: uwbeinternational - 2021-03-05, 14:22 - Forum: Non-English - No Replies

Hallo Zusammen

Vor einigen Jahren hatte ich einmal das System Grey betrieben und damals mit einem KIT bestellt.
Ging alles ganz gut, doch durch mehrere Umzüge ging alles leider verloren. 

Nun muss ich von vorne beginnen und meine Löterfahrungen sind derzeit etwas eingeschränkt bis unmöglich. 
Daher suche ich nach einem möglichem komplett fertigem und einsatzbereitem System RED oder BLUE. 

Vielleicht kann mir hierbei jemand helfen oder hat eines abzugeben?
Bestellen geht derzeit ja leider nicht. 

Grüsse aus der Schweiz

  LMO URL drops "Archive by day"?
Posted by: stixpjr - 2021-02-25, 01:20 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - No Replies

I was trying to "deep link" to a couple of lighting strikes on a particular day that likely happened to blow up a telephone line surge protector - and I find that the "Archive by day" selection in the "ar" and/or "as" URL parameters appear to be ignored?

This is easy to replicate; view a specific day (2020-10-30 was the day I'm interested in, for the greater Sydney region), copy and paste the URL, and you'll find the view resets to a 1hr realtime view. Tested on Firefox and Chrome, with the same behavior.
