Hi All
I have my antenna on a window sill where it seems to get best reception. I recently put a new mobile wifi hub within a couple of hundred centimetres and it, I think, created huge interference. Moving it away to about 1/2 metre and the interference looks as though it has stopped. I have no idea why it should happen but it might be a clue for others.

  Blue System: PreAmp & Antenna Questions
Posted by: BassJohn - 2018-02-27, 18:38 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (5)


I'm on the last legs of setting up my Blue system and have some questions.

1) On the pre-amp board are the connectors A-1,A-2 and B-1,B-2 relate to the vertical antennas?
2) On the pre-amp board is the connector C-1,C-2 for the optional horizontal antenna?
3) I intend to use my loop antenna I had on my Green system, Which I was under the impression it did not matter which way it pointed, is this still so?
4) On the Green system the loop antenna windings were wound in a certain direction, and had to be wired up to the Green pre-amp the correct way, is this still so for the Blue system, if so which end of the loop goes to which connector (1, 2) ?

Regards John

  Lightning Data Access
Posted by: GHinchey - 2018-02-27, 16:03 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (3)

Hello there.

I'm a college student in my senior year looking to complete my research to acquire my degree.  My research project revolves around lightning strike forecasting and the verification of those forecasting products.  I'm looking for a way to access the lightning strike database this community has built over the years.  I see that I can pull down some imagery of the various strikes, but I really would like to have the raw strike data so that I may plot it versus another data source.

It looks like only contributors are allowed access to this data.  My question is do I need to have an active lightning detector to be a contributor or can I donate towards the cause?  I've been wanting a System BLUE for some time now and I'm on the waiting list to get one.   

If there's any questions regarding my request please let me know.

  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
Posted by: ThomasSc - 2018-02-18, 12:50 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)


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 (19)


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?

  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.
