  System Blue PCB 19.4 vs 20.6
Posted by: dhitzigrath - 2019-07-01, 20:40 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (6)

Hi All!

Can somebody confirm if I can use the case (housing) here https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3364124 that states it's for PCB 20.6 with my PCB 19.4?

From what I can see it seems to have the same layout, but I don't want to waste a lot of material and time on this to find out it doesn't fit...

Photo Station double present
Posted by: ElmigerR - 2019-07-01, 17:05 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - No Replies

I have a problem with a "recycled" station where I no longer have access to the old account. 
I registered the station in a new account. It worked, but the station still sends its data via the old registration.

It is the station with the ID 871. Who can help?

We are looking for a translator into Japanese for the vector map. Please write to info@blitzortung.org. It's just a matter of a few words and sentences.

  historical data
Posted by: GhostTown80 - 2019-06-30, 07:54 - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies


Please forgive my lack of knowledge.  I use this website frequently to help determine where wildland fires may start in my region during fire season.  The problem I have is that, if I am not monitoring this site constantly as a storm passes, and plotting the strikes separately, then the information is lost once the strike drops off the map.  It would be of enormous help to me to be able to see strike data for a specific region aver the past 6-12, maybe even 24 hours.  Is there a way to do this?  If so, how?  If not, is it something you folks would ever consider implementing?

Either way, please know that a great many of us in the farm/ranch community are very grateful that this site exists.  Fires often don't take off and burn for several hours after a strike, and it's wonderful to have some data to help us focus our watch efforts.

Photo Need clear plastic hard drive box as enclosure
Posted by: mwaters - 2019-06-27, 23:29 - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

I want to buy another clear plastic box like this one for my other station's main board. Do you have one?

This material is anti-static polycarbonate, and it was the protective shipping container for a SATA hard hard drive. It's a perfect protective enclosure for the main board; I just had to cut holes for the connectors, etc. with an X-Acto knife.


It doesn't have to be exactly like this; it just needs to be transparent so that I can see the LEDs on the board.

Of course, I'll pay big bucks for anything that I find usable. ;-)

  What do the yellow triangles represent?
Posted by: OHFW Bill - 2019-06-25, 16:41 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (1)

I am using this tool to help deal with wildfires in our area. We are quite dry in north central Washington State, US during the summer and next to human activity lightning strikes are the most common causes of fire starts.

When I zoom deeply into the map I see a number of yellowish triangles. I can not find any information that states what they mean, could someone please let me know.

Thank you.

  Electric fence interference
Posted by: Alanpenwith - 2019-06-03, 19:32 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (10)

I am pretty sure I have been getting interference from an electric fence. It was only abut 20M away from my antennas but has now been moved further away. I have set the gains right down but now hardly ever pick up lightning. Maybe better than swamping the servers with useless signals. 
So A) can anyone identify the trace below as really being the fence and B) would direct earthing of the H field shields help. Or any other tips for that matter.

  PCB 19.5
Posted by: toutoumeteo - 2019-06-02, 16:59 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (4)

I just received my kit, systhem blue. The main PCB board is the 19.5. In the documentation (see link below), there is no mention of this board, only 19.4 and earlier. I assume the instructions for the 19.4 applies to the 19.5. Is that correct or is there any thing new that I should know about?



P.S. if any body has a picture of a complete mounted PCB 19.5 to post that would be very usefull.

Aktuell, ist mir überhaupt nicht klar warum die Ortungen des systems red 720 oder blue 2058 so gering sind.
An manchen Tagen „0“ obwohl der Controller was ganz anderes aussagt ????
Aber ich finde es grundsätzlich merkwürdig wie wenige Stationen inzwischen in Deutschland überhaupt noch online sind.
Ist Deutschland was das Thema BlitzortungLive anbelangt abgeschaltet oder nicht mehr interessant ??
Merkwürdig wie das ganze immer komischere Formen annimmt......oder hat das Interesse so massiv nachgelassen ??
Wäre echt schön wenn sich jemand melden würde ansonsten verliert gerade ein so tolles Projekt immer mehr an Interesse und vor allem an neuen und meiner Meinung nach wichtigen zukünftigen Mitgliedern....

Als Beispiel hab ich mal die Station 2058 genommen.....
