  Station in central Brazil
Posted by: Burajirujin - 2014-06-24, 20:50 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Hello ppl,
I noticed that there are almost no stations running in South America (only found one in Colombia). I live in Goiânia, a city in the central region of Brazil (16.7 S/49.2 W).
I've become interested in running a station here for myself, but I don't know if it would help the network, since the nearest running station is 4000km away.
The system may run in high gain mode without much problems, I think, because it would stay somewhat far from the city center in a low density area, without any strong power line, transformer or big electric machine running near.
A station running here would help?

  Live Map Overlay
Posted by: cosined - 2014-06-24, 19:13 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (4)


In the above article, a GIF appears that shows your (North American) map with seemingly real-time strikes (with the ray and ripple effects), though when I load the live map all I see is a static map. I've checked and unchecked Strikes, Detectors, and Sounds, but nothing seems to reproduce the articles experience. http://www.lightningmaps.org/realtime?lang=en works fine for me.

I'm using Firefox 30.0, but it doesn't work in IE either.

Thanks for any insight!

  Blitzortung in the news again
Posted by: Benedict.Smith - 2014-06-24, 09:13 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (37)

I think Egon is going to be busy in the run-up to his holiday with such good publicity!!



However the geek article stated that you could buy fully assembled units! I think that could cause a few headaches Dodgy

  Mahlzeit zusammen
Posted by: Superschlumpf - 2014-06-23, 18:37 - Forum: Non-English - Replies (12)

So, 2 Komplettsysteme beim Egon persönlich abgeholt,ein wenig gequatscht.... Nun ist das erste Controllerboard zusammengebaut und ich beschäftige mich mit dem Flashen der Firmware.
Aber wo finde ich die Firmware? Habe natürlich vergessen den Egon direkt zu fragen als ich bei ihm war. In der PDF finde ich nur Links zu der Software zum flashen.
Habe ich (mal wieder) was übersehen/überlesen?

  Antarctic station
Posted by: alexandicity - 2014-06-23, 16:09 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (13)


I am leaving to live in Antarctica soon. I was interested in taking a kit with me to measure any Antarctic sferics. Does anyone know if there is already any coverage out there? It seems not, from what I see. I don't expect there will be many lighting events (or perhaps any?) there but if there are, it would be very interesting to see their frequency and locations!

Pragmatically, I would also like to know if anyone has any experience operating these at low temperatures (down to -50 regularly)? Insulation might help, but only if the preamp power consumption isn't too low! I may also need to run a long (10+m) between the preamp and the main boad; is this possible?

Thanks for any thoughts!

  Raw data
Posted by: samcox - 2014-06-23, 15:36 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (5)

Is it possible to receive the raw data coming from Blitzortung, maybe from an API? I'm interested in exporting it out and visualising it in an artistic fashion.

  Robotic lawnmower interference?
Posted by: GeigerBe - 2014-06-22, 10:49 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (26)


I have a big problem.

Since my neigbour owns a Husqverna Automower, my station isn't useable anymore. I get Interference all the time!

I checked the internet and found out that the mower uses a magnetic field, inducted by a wire arround the lawn, not to get lost.

Have someone a idea how I can get online again? At the moment a use a frame antenna, would it help to change to a ferrit rod?

Or how I apply filters or something else what my damp this frequencies...

My Station is number 410.

At the moment it's online, but I'll switch it off soon, not to spam the network with a lot of false signals....

And here is my lightingtracker web access:

The shipment of kits and/or boards will make a summer break starting from 11 July. After July 11, for several weeks, no kits or boards are sent, but I try to ship all orders which I receive before July 7!

  Are Blitzortung data secret? Why?
Posted by: jumpjack - 2014-06-18, 12:41 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

I do not have needed skill and money to buy, build, install, configure and maintain a Blitzortung detector/transmitter.
Will Blitzortung raw data remain secret for ever for me?!? Huh
I'd like to do some statistical analysis on them.
