  Empty statistic page
Posted by: hazet_CHAM - 2021-08-18, 15:27 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - No Replies

I was using station and network statistic data to compare with other stations and optimize my station. Since a few weeks (?), this data sheets displaying only "0" for all stations. What happend? Are they no longer maintained because of Toby's maintenance cease? Are there perhaps alternative stats sources?
Have a look at this: https://www.lightningmaps.org/blitzortun...n_id=14718.

I'm actively looking for a System Blue to buy to use in central Austria.

Please PM me with offers!

  Are some strikes not detected?
Posted by: MrCreosote - 2021-08-12, 06:43 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

The reason I ask is that this evening there was a near direct strike at my house - simultaneous flash and bang.  Many electronic devices blow and a 15 amp breaker tripped in main panel.

But the map only shows 2 strikes near Jeannette PA and they were over 1 km away.  That would be 2-3 second delay between flash and bang.

That simply is not possible.  There was a strike that was virtually on my house.

Next door neighbor ran out of their house, they saw the flash and it came from the direction of my house.

Could that strike have been missed?

  Map Legends
Posted by: Charbear - 2021-08-11, 18:30 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (1)


New to the board and your sites. Been really enjoying lightningmaps.org. Maybe a silly question but do you have a legend for your maps. Example, I see several icons of airplanes on the map but nowhere so I see an explanation of what they mean or why they are there. Are they actually small airfields of some sort I am not familiar with? Thanks!

  Moving: Anything to do?
Posted by: acatalano - 2021-08-10, 20:57 - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

I plan on moving within the next few months from Colorado to Washington State. Other than taking down at one location and setting it up in another, is there anything I should do?

  Station Duplicates
Posted by: acatalano - 2021-08-10, 20:49 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (2)

Just within the last week I have seen that the Colorado Station Statistics table (https://www.blitzortung.org/en/station_l...F+Colorado) shows many, perhaps all the stations listed twice, each with different statistics for "valid", "involved", "used". Looks like something is amiss here.
Just an FYI.

  GPS data via tcp/ip
Posted by: pmichniewski - 2021-08-09, 19:01 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (7)


how feasible would it be for System Blue to optionally serve GPS data via tcp/ip? I've recently set up a Raspberry Pi for ADS-B reception purposes and it would nice to have access to GPS data but I don't want to have GPS antennas all over. Since System Blue already connects to the network AND has a GPS receiver, it would be a very useful option to have.

If the developers are too busy for this kind of thing, I would gladly implement such a feature.

  Issue starting Sunday August 1st at 13.00
Posted by: PA4EME - 2021-08-07, 11:09 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)


I noticed that my receiver was working not as it should and suspected to find a technical issue here at home.

Looking into it, I could not find any and checked some other stations and found the same issue. So it must be a mutual problem.

It seems that from Sunday, August 1st around 13.00, something is going wrong. When I look at the list of stations in eg the Netherlands, I see the same issue starting at the same time. The number of detections dropping suddenly and the same color pattern in the image.
As example I added images from myself (1152) and from 1271; you can clearly see same pattern and start of disturbance.

Something going on in the collective system?

  Detecting in other Zones?
Posted by: actiopabs94 - 2021-08-07, 10:11 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Is there any way to be able to detect strikes in other zones in the world (Oceania or Europe).  I'm just curious how far away I can detect strikes.  Hawaii is the most distant location for me and I usually detect strikes there when they occur.  Thank you all in advance .https://19216811.cam/  https://1921681001.id/
