  External Projects list
Posted by: skiter - 2018-05-08, 15:32 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (2)

Hello all. A newbie here (from Spain).

Looking at the website, it calls to new project developers to be "different from existing projects", but I'm not finding any list of projects (did I mention, I'm newbie here?).

I'm also interested on taking a look into the available data, before thinking on a new project, but it also claims it's only for contributors.

Could you give me some "light"  about this? Wink

Thank you in advanced.

Question Wi-fi link to System Blue over 400'
Posted by: mwaters - 2018-05-07, 16:15 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (8)

I am thinking about relocating my controller and antennas from my house to a metal pole barn between 300' and 450' from my house, away from the RFI and overhead power lines. Since there is foliage between the house and that barn, I'm thinking that I need something else such as an access point and small Yagi at each end.  [Image: huh.gif] 

There is CAT5 cable between the house and a point that's about 75' from that barn, but it is no longer continuous and likely has water in it. Besides, isn't 450' pushing it for CAT5?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!   [Image: smile.gif]

  System Blue not received yet
Posted by: EA3BNF - 2018-05-01, 15:07 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

I know the long waiting list of Blitzortung but I paid more than two months ago after order confirmation and I have not yet received the system blue 19.4.

Is this delay normal?  Huh

Manuel

  Quiet quiet day in NA

Very dead day lightning wise in region 3. Looking at three of the sites in NC, virtually no signals.

  Noise abatement
Posted by: SteveQlQ - 2018-04-17, 00:07 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (5)

Hello. My system Blue is working, but I would like to optimize it and eliminate or try to cut down some of the noise. I am using 2 200mm ferrites which are placed indoors in the same room as the controller. Here are three screen grabs of my signals during a quiet time..no lightning and no "faults" where all 3 LED's are lit. The last trace (channel 2A)seems to me to be the most problematic; it appears as a sawtooth well above 0 volts. Could this be a power supply issue or external rf interference from some yet indeterminate source?

Thanks,  Steve

  RJ45 Network
Posted by: Alanpenwith - 2018-03-30, 16:47 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (5)

Hi All
A bit of a continuation of my Lost Controller thread. 
As someone suggested the Vonets wifi connection I thought I would try it. It's a much neater unit than the old access point I got working.  I managed the get the router to see the controller's IP but I can't get a connection through the browser. Also the network led pulses. Looking closely the Vonet rj45 plug seems only to have pins 2 and 3 connected.  So what are the pins used by the controller RJ45 network socket ?
Regards
Alan

  Lost controller

Hi All
Blue system windows 7
I have been trying to set up a shared network having changed from a wired to wireless network for the pc's. Obviously the controller has to stay on wired. Win 7 sets the lan adapter to an ip of 198.162.100.1 for a shared network so before doing this while I could still access the controller I set the dchp to enable and changed the ip to 198.162.100.10 
Now if I ip scan the 100's I can no longer find the controller. Is there a way of doing a reset and what would the default ip then be. I have tried a power off and on but still no luck.
I am still getting a flashing network led although when I have made contact the data seems to be flowing OK (noise floor shows a continuous trace)
I'm rather stuck so HELP !!! Please !
Regards
Alan

  Flashing networks led
Posted by: Alanpenwith - 2018-03-19, 13:45 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - No Replies

Hi All
Blue system 
Suddenly the network led has started flashing on/off at about 1 second intervals. The led keeps on flashing even with the network unplugged. An IP scanner shows up the IP and noise floor switched on shows a continuous trace.
Any ideas ?

  Radar Interference
Posted by: Alanpenwith - 2018-03-08, 08:48 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (8)

Hi
I quite often compare my performance with others fairly close to me on Signal vs Strikes.
I was looking at the statistics for Bridport Dorset UK which is a station not too far from me and noticed how many thousands of signals were produced.
Looking at the signal graph it shows regular E signals and I wondered if a nearby radar installation, maybe at Royal Navy Air Station at Yeovilton, was the cause.
Has anybody else noticed anything similar.
Regards
Alan
