I am exited to be performing my first test on my System Blue Station 2835.
Expect to have the antennas (E-field and H-field) installed within the next couple days.

Have a nice weekend  Lightning

  Invitation response
Posted by: pr06 - 2020-09-29, 15:15 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)


I recently received an invitation to participate.

I have tried to respond indicating my purchase requirements by replying to the email b...tung@ gmx . o__ but that immediately failed 

554:554-gmx.net (mxgmx001) Nemesis ESMTP Service not available
554-No SMTP service
554-Reject due to policy restrictions.

Is this the correct email address to use?  I've seen another thread here ( https://forum.blitzortung.org/showthread.php?tid=3311indicating that that person replied directly an individual.

Apologies if I've missed something.

An alternative reason for failure is that I have responded from a different email address ( I registered a couple of years back using an email address from which I can no longer send ).

  Participation accepted, then no more responses
Posted by: Kna - 2020-09-26, 20:45 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (9)


On August 14th, I received an email from Egon Wanke offering me to participate in the network, after I believe 2 years of waiting.
I replied the following week accepting with joy and specifying the material I wanted to buy and the payment method I chose. I also bought some supplies to install my future system blue.

I didn't get an answer to my first email. Since then, being a bit worried, I sent two other messages to Egon, to this day after a month and a half, still no answer!

What the hell is going on? I find this quite disappointing!

I think I have everything ready and have completed registration but I seem to  be missing something to put it on line.  I get this message" This email already exists in our database. Please assign the station to your existing account!" What is my next step?

  fault led at first boot
Posted by: uvash - 2020-09-26, 04:54 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (2)

Hello, I just built my system blue PCB 20.7
Without connecting to a GPS antenna or to ethernet, i tried to boot it, and after some led blinking and beeping, I got a constant glow on power and mode LEDs, as well as a red constant light for the fault led. It does not seem promising, and I couldn't find anything to understand better on the matter.
If I press the reset button,the red fault led goes away. Do you know what is happening, or link meany guide or something please?

  Location of H-field antenna
Posted by: DL9GTB - 2020-09-06, 11:12 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

I use 2 ferrites as the H-field antenna. My system blue is housed in a wooden garden shed. Does it matter where I mount the antenna? Or is the reception better outside?

Greetings, Torsten

Smile System Blue 19.5 Board Assembled For Sale
Posted by: carolinastormwatch57 - 2020-09-04, 17:47 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (1)


I have a Blitzortung System Blue 19.5 Board already assembled for sale. System has only been used 6 months and is working fine. Included in metal housing and includes the unit, power supply, GPS, both E-Field and H-field Antennas (2 ferrite Roads and both antenna mounting blocks).

Ready to hook up immediately and use. (Does not include coax for mounting due to cable being 100'; will include with costs for shipping).

Perfect for someone not willing to order the parts which is a problem due to being shipped from Germany and then assembling and having to purchase power supply, GPS and Antenna Cables.

Have put at least $800 in everything included plus time assembling,ect.   Asking $675 USD.

Please PM me if interested

  forum validation question
Posted by: speculatrix - 2020-08-27, 17:04 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

I just signed up to the forum and it asks a question referencing the "cover your area page" https://www.blitzortung.org/en/cover_your_area.php

problem is, at least one of the questions quotes a sentence from that page, and there's no such sentence. it's the one about xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

fortunately I was able to get the forum to ask me a different question and complete the registration.

Greetings from KX4TD!

I just setup Raspberry Pi 3+ using NOOBS SD. My browser is Chromium (as supplied by NOOBS and updated).

https://map.blitzortung.org/?y#10/34.8101/-83.8771 map is inverted (see attachment).    

https://www.blitzortung.org/en/live_ligh...php?map=32 map is OK.
