  A delay when lightning shows up on 80 Mhz
Posted by: andrewalvarez - 2024-05-24, 05:02 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Why is their a delay when lightning shows up on 80 Mhz when detected by lightning detectors used at lower frequencies hosted online?

Stupid question because I think I know the answer but have forgotten it

I see lightning at Blitzortung.org but on RSP1a it shows up on 80 MHz 5 second later slope

Sad New station not involved in calculation
Posted by: Kets_One - 2024-05-21, 17:53 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (3)

Hi all,

A new and enthousiastic user with station 3050 here from Netherlands.
I've successfully installed  by system blue (PCB22.0) with a PCB23.1 H-field amplifier.
Antenna is a COAX 2-loop (1 meter diameter).

As far as i can tell the system is up and running and i am still tweaking the settings here and there.
However, from the station list it does not appear to have been using any of the data i have sent, even though quite a few thunderstorms have come close the past few days.
What is wrong with my setup? Do i need a different antenna (ferrite)?

  Question about Blitzortung lightning detector integration
Posted by: melissasmith - 2024-05-08, 08:03 - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

I just set up the Blitzortung lightning detector integration. I only want to be notified if the strikes are getting closer. Best way to go about doing that? 
Do you use the Azimuth sensor for anything?
Thanks in advance!

  Detected Lightning strikes subsequently disappearing
Posted by: weatherman22 - 2024-05-03, 23:23 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - No Replies

We had a spell of thunder in Central Scotland on 3rd May and the Real Time Lightning page indicated the strikes near me, which tied in well with the sounds. However they soon disappeared off the display, and even selecting the -24hr option did not bring them back, though I can still see the earlier ones to the east before they reached here.

I've noticed this before, strikes that were picked up in real time but then disappeared from the -1h -24h and archive pages.

  Some PCB 22.0 detectors for sale
Posted by: Egon - 2024-05-01, 17:30 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Dear all,

we have a few PCB 22.0 test boards with which we tested the need for some components. It is a minimal version of a detector based on System Blue with only two amplifiers for magnetic antennas. Some SMD components were manually soldered onto these boards. It is a fully usable detector that is equivalent to System Blue in standard operation. This variant will be developed to offer a cheaper alternative entry option for participants.

The price of these test boards with a H-field preamplifier is 149 euros plus shipping. The final version PCB 22.2 will soon be available with preamplifier PCB 23.1 for 249 euros.

Please write me a private message, if you are interested.

  Controller Status Page
Posted by: Bobby_Two_Dogs - 2024-04-29, 20:23 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (2)

I've noticed that on my controller's Status Page there is a graphic showing Received/ % good/ % sent over Minute/Hour/Day.

I find this very useful to see if I'm getting hits and the system is working.

I notice that after a few minutes this graphic stops updating.

If I restart my web browser (any browser) after it stops updating it actually doesn't show up.

The only way I can get the graphic back is to reboot the controller.

I'm just curious if this is normal behaviour or if it may be indicative of something wrong with settings or my controller.

  New system - not certain if it work
Posted by: Bobby_Two_Dogs - 2024-04-25, 15:32 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (7)

I purchased a system #3024 from a gentleman in Germany.

It arrived, I have plugged it in and it seems to be working, however I have noticed that on the lightningmaps.org my system never gets a hit - i.e. I can see my station but I never have any lines nor a "green dot" saying my station has been used by the system to updated the web interface.

Since my system was orginally in Europe and is now in North America (Toronto) is there anything I need to get it up and running properly in it's new location?
