  Access to archive data to trace 3 Sprites
Posted by: greg_priestley - 2018-02-20, 00:30 - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies


Is there any way that a non-contributor can get access to raw data?

On 16 December 2017 I photographed 3 lightning sprites over a 20 minute period, and wanted to try and more precisely identify where these sprites occurred.  I've been able to run the map:


but would really love access to the raw data so that I don't have to approximate everything from the map.

Would one of the contributors be able to extract the relevant raw data and provide to me (if this is not against the terms of service, etc)?  I really want the data for the above map and time period but it could be limited to 149E to 153E, 29S to 33S.

Thanks in advance

  GREEN stations

has the TOA System GREEN support of your servers already ended? If not, when will they be finally taken out of the computations of lightning strikes (see the announcement in the beginning of this thread in 2015).

I ask because I cannot connect to the server anymore.

In the meantime, I have set up a System RED (ID #34) and recently a System BLUE at the same location and they work without any problem.

Best regards,

  Blitzortung data on Windy.com
Posted by: Windy.com - 2018-02-12, 16:25 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (14)


I am Ivo founder of http://www.windy.com, non-commercial weather website.

We have radar overlay for USA and now we are finishing radar overlay for part of Europe (where the data are open). As we understand lightning data are CC. We would like to use them on Windy.com on real time basis and also donate to Blitzortung some amount. So far I have not found any API endpoints, or some description how to connect to data.

Is there someone willing to help?

gibt es in MYBO eine Stelle, wo man die "Eigenen Blitze" der gesamten Lauffzeit (nicht der letzten Stunde)

  Lightning maps MYBO auf eueren Server
Posted by: Hoelters - 2018-02-01, 18:38 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (1)

Hallo Tobias,

Ich besitze Die ToA BLUE Station (Nettetal-Kaldenkirchen BLUE) mit der StationsNummer 2133.

Diese wird auch bei Lightningsmap angezeigt (allerdings bei mir in Nettetal-Kaldenkirchen mit Versatz von 2km)

in der Statistik Rankingliste.

Die Station (ehem. Nettetal-Kaldenkirchen RED), die ich nun auf "Anonym" gestellt babe,  Stationnummer 693 wird dort in der Liste Weitergeführt.

Diese Station (693) ist nicht mehr in Betriebund wird noch in der Statistik-Rankingliste "rot" mit "?" hinterlegt.

Ich habe alles mögliche versucht und leider nicht hinbekommen.

Die Station 693 ist korrekt bei http://www.blitzortung.de gelöscht worden.

Lösche bitte Station 693 von Euere Datenbank.

  System Blue für Bastler
Posted by: Egon - 2018-01-29, 16:14 - Forum: Non-English - Replies (4)

Ich biete hier ein System Blue mit Main Board 19.4 mit Gehäuse ohne Filter ICs für Bastler für 120 Euro inklusive Versand in Deutschland an. Die Station funktioniert einwandfrei, jedoch ist die SMA Buchse für die GPS Antenne  defekt. Diese müsste ausgelötet und ersetzt werden, siehe Foto. Eine neue SMA Buchse lege ich dabei. Das Auslöten der SMA Buchse erfordert jedoch mehr als ein Lötkolben. Da ich nicht über die notwendigen Lötkolben verfüge, gebe ich die Station an Bastler mit Löterfahrung ab.

Vorverstärker sind natürlich dabei. Theoretisch würde ein angeklemmtes Kabel bereits als GPS Antenne ausreichen.

Bei Interesse bitte E-Mail an blitzortung@gmx.org.

  SBAS satellites
Posted by: elythomaslumber - 2018-01-22, 19:42 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (2)

Have activated GPS & GLONASS and also SBAS yesterday. I can see always just one SBAS satellit.
The number is always red and there is no receiving level (dB) shown.
The position of my GPS-antenna is not very good. Is that the reason for that only "red" satellite number or is that set by default for SBAS satellites?



28th of Jan 2018... to give myself the answer Big Grin ...
After some days I noticed that from time to time the satellte number of the SBAS changes from red to black and a receiving level was displayed.
So that means my GPS antenna has not the best position but since I added GLONASS there are always a lot of satellites in view and tracked.

  lightningmaps.org station - last signal spectrum plot different
Posted by: VA_LM_Blue - 2018-01-19, 14:39 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (2)


I updated my Blue to firmware 8.4 last night.  Last night I also noticed on my
lightningmaps.org - station tab - Last Signal window that the signal spectrum is now
dominated by the electrical system 60-Hz and I'm sure the first few
harmonics too.  The real signal spectrum is hardly visible near the bottom of the plot. 
It appears to be a spectrum scaling change somewhere perhaps.  The spectrum also appears similar on
several other Blue stations pages.  Several Red stations spectrum I
checked appear normal and not dominated by the 60-Hz signal.  Not a big deal but
something changed, perhaps only for the system blue stations?
