I'm still not having any luck connecting to the server after recommissioning Green system. I've logged in to the "User data" and input information, and changed to "Forum".

  Use of historic data for informative project
Posted by: piemonkey - 2021-07-12, 14:48 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - No Replies

I attend an event (well, I used to when it could happen, and will again after covid), which takes place in an area with regular storms with a lot of lightning. Measures are taken to ensure safety from the lightning strikes, but many people at the event don't follow them. I'd love to be able to use the past data of strikes for the area to demonstrate that the chances of a strike occurring nearby are high. Unless the cost of the parts for a detector falls significantly, I'm unfortunately not in a position to participate in data collection at the moment unfortunately.

How do I set it to my home location? It seems to randomly appear in different locations.

  System Red for sale. Solgt / Sold
Posted by: Einar - 2021-07-05, 20:18 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (1)

I prefer to sell to a user in Norway, so therefore I present it in Norwegian. If no norwegian buyer emerge, I will relist in english.

System Red med skjermede ferrit antenner selges. Det ble tatt offline for flere år siden da min fargelaser støyet så det ikke kunne registrere lyn.
Jeg tenkte det ble ny skriver, men den virker fortsatt. Og jeg prioriterer printer fremfor Blitzortung.

Den var på nett og virket bra (bortsett fra når printeren var på). Bare med ferritantenner. E-felt kortet følger med, men jeg har aldri brukt det. 
Mikrokontroller til E-felt kortet har jeg, men vet ikke hvor. Den er dog ganske kurant. Det følger med et CPU kort som reserve til  hovedkortet. ( STM32f4-discovery).

Bilder av de aktuelle kortene vedlagt, men jeg vet ikke om det virker. Mail meg for bilder om de ikke er der.

Jeg tenker meg NOK 3000,- for dette.

  Blue e-field antenna question
Posted by: llowrey - 2021-07-05, 18:40 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (2)


The documentation for the Blue kit indicates that one can use the 'built-in' antenna and includes a photo of the PCB with the rectangular section opposite the antenna screw terminal, and labeled 'Probe / Antenna' below, still attached. That rectangular section is not electrically connected to the e-field board.


It's been 25+ years since my coursework in electromagnetics so I'm a bit ignorant at this point. Is that separate rectangular section coupled in some way even though it is not electrically connected?

What, exactly, is the 'built-in' antenna?

Is it preferred to use a wire instead of the 'built-in' antenna?

    5V USB Power Supply

Photos available upon request.  Asking $500 USD plus shipping from Alberta, Canada.  Reasonable offers considered.

  Collaboration with PRedictWind.com
Posted by: jbungener - 2021-06-23, 14:34 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (3)


My name is Jim Bungener, I work for a weather forecasting website called Predictwind.com.
one of the services we do is to install wind sensors in various areas where people want to have better wind sensing.
We work with communities, towns, private individuals etc... to install as many wind sensors as we can.
These are not simple off the shelf "weather stations" these are purpose built, rugged stations that we install in some of the most treacherous conditions (sea spray, rain, sand etc...) and expect to work for years to come.
We would like to add your Lightning sensors to our package so that we measure more then just wind.

Who should I get in touch with to discuss how we should make this happen.

Thank you

  Bolts not seen on live map
Posted by: Zonker - 2021-06-21, 21:07 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

I live in the south of France near to loose, sorry, Toulouse and tonite, while bombarded by mainly horizontal bolts, not vertical that strike I mean, there was no sign of all of those bolts on the live map, vector map,,,as if it wasn't recorded by the system. I saw that there aren;t many spots around here so I consider installing a blue system in the future...
If someone has an explanation to that...

I am on the waiting list but it would  good to know, in case I got ot a place where I am allowed to get a suystem, if there is something like a price list as well as a list of what is included and how much does every non essential part cost.

I am retired and well as many other retirees the finances are not the same as if on would be chasing the daily burger or Taco  Big Grin

Thanks and regards Rainer
