  Use data in free mobile app?
Posted by: mraviator - 2014-07-15, 10:35 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (7)

I have a free weather mobile app and would like to know if I can use the lightning data in it without licensing issues. I've found th eCC BY-SA on this page (http://www.lightningmaps.org/about?lang=en) and think I can. Is this correct?

thanks

  A few questions!
Posted by: wheniwake - 2014-07-14, 19:18 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (14)

Hi, was researching into how to use a raspberry pi for a weather station when I stumbled across this site. This is definitely a project I am interested in and have yet to see a station in Central Scotland! I expect I will see a fair delay before kits are available again, I'm sure I can wait!

I have filled out the email form for further information however have not had a reply (granted it was only 24 hours ago) will I be waiting until after the summer break for a reply?

I have had a look but cannot find a UK sub section or forum , is there one?

  Nearby Power Lines
Posted by: Steve_Bell - 2014-07-14, 16:00 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (26)

Hi all,

New Forum member here thinking of building a station in Worcester, UK. (There's a nice hole in the grid that needs filling! :-)

HOWEVER... My house is around 100 meters or so from overhead power lines. Have a look at British post code WR5 3TD on Google Earth. ( http://is.gd/GDyHvW )

Look carefully, and you can see the lines and a shadow of the closest pylon alongside the main road to the West of us.

I am wondering if anyone else has any similar situation and what interference they have/have not experienced. I did email Tobias, who responded as follows:

"...we don't know whether it will work. It depends on the current and voltage through the line, your antennas, gain settings and so on. It might work, but only with some lower sensitivity. You can also ask in our forum whether other users have experiences in this."

So, that is what I am doing. Does anyone have any views as to whether this will be a problem or not?

Many thanks, all.
Steve Bell.

Here's a better picture showing the location of my house and the lines.

Congratulations for having the Portuguese language added to options for the Blitzortung homepage.

Just a note: When we chose Portuguese language, on the forum tab, the text "Fórum" is missing. It's shows empty.

  Problem beim Updatevon myblitzortung auf 1.3
Posted by: StoehrMa - 2014-07-10, 07:14 - Forum: Non-English - Replies (2)

Ich habe gerade mein myblitzortung von 1.1 auf die Version 1.3 Upzudaten. per FTP die Dateien raufgeschoben... neu eingestiegen und dann hat er versucht wie immer die Datenbank upzudaten. Dann kam folgende Meldung:

Aktualisiere Version 1.1 -> 1.2

ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` ADD `comment` varchar(128) NOT NULL AFTER `country`: Fertig
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` DROP `show_mybo`: Fertig
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` CHANGE `amp_antennas` `amp_antennas` VARCHAR(100): Fertig
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` ADD `amp_pcbs` VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL AFTER `status`: Fertig

Aktualisiere Version 1.2 -> 1.3

ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` CHANGE `amp_antennas` `amp_antennas` VARCHAR(100): Fertig
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` ADD `amp_pcbs` VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL AFTER `status`: Fehler

Aktualisierung beendet!
Update-Info: Setze Version auf 1.1

Also nur beim letzten Punkt hat er eine Fehlermeldung gebracht. Hat aber die Version nicht hochgesetzt und somit will er wieder updaten.... auch das hab ich nochmals versucht, jetzt kommt folgende Meldung:

Aktualisiere Version 1.1 -> 1.2

ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` ADD `comment` varchar(128) NOT NULL AFTER `country`: Fehler
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` DROP `show_mybo`: Fehler
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` CHANGE `amp_antennas` `amp_antennas` VARCHAR(100): Fertig
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` ADD `amp_pcbs` VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL AFTER `status`: Fehler

Aktualisiere Version 1.2 -> 1.3

ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` CHANGE `amp_antennas` `amp_antennas` VARCHAR(100): Fertig
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` ADD `amp_pcbs` VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL AFTER `status`: Fehler

Aktualisierung beendet!
Update-Info: Setze Version auf 1.1

Jetzt habe ich fast nur noch Fehlermeldungen!

Hab mir gerade die Datenbank angesehen.... dort scheint aber alles geändert worden zu sein..... nur die Datenbankversion setzt er von 1.1 nicht auf 1.3. Wenn ich die in der Datenbank ändere und dann im Internet Bereich auf myblitzortung was drücke schreibt er mir die Version sofort wieder auf 1.1 zurück.

Ich glaube allerdings dass das Problem am Sprung von 1.1 auf 1.3 liegt.

Er hat beim Datenbankupdate von 1.1 auf 1.2 diese Zeile ausgeführt:
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` ADD `amp_pcbs` VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL AFTER `status`: Fertig

Danach hat er von 1.2 auf 1.3 die selbe Zeile nochmals ausgeführt und dann mit Fehler bestätigt. Anscheinend weil es ja bereits in der Datenbank geändert wurde. Anscheinend schließt das Installation PHP File allerdings den Vorgang erst ab wenn auch wirklich alles ohne Fehler geändert wurde.

Wenn ich jetzt das ganze nochmals mache kommen natürlich noch mehr "Fehlermeldungen" weil die Datenbank ja schon geändert wurde und er schließt das Update nicht mehr ab, da ja Fehler.

Was kann ich tun? Wie kann ich das beheben?
Danke für deine Hilfe!

lg
Martin


Hab jetzt noch was probiert.... hab aus der datenbank in der tabelle stations die spalte "comment" gelöscht UND eine spalte "stations" angelegt.
Das sind genau die sachen die er im update von 1.1 auf 1.2 laut update.inc.php neu anlegen bzw löschen sollte.

Wenn ich nun bei myblitzortung wieder in den internen bereich wechsle und wie aufgefordert auf "Update durchführen" clicke bekomme ich folgendes ausgeworfen:

Aktualisiere Version 1.1 -> 1.2

ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` ADD `comment` varchar(128) NOT NULL AFTER `country`: Fertig
ALTER TABLE `mybo_stations` DROP `show_mybo`: Fertig

Aktualisierung beendet!
Update-Info: Setze Version auf 1.1

DIE VERSIONS NUMMER WURDE WIEDER NICHT HOCHGESETZT UND SOMIT BEKOMME ICH IM INTERNEN BEREICH WIEDER DIE UPDATEAUFFORDERUNG!

  spare boards, somewhere
Posted by: Detlef_A - 2014-07-10, 07:06 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

Hi forum,

I discovered blitzortung recently and Im very enthusiastic about the idea. Unfortunately new boards for system Red will be available at the earliest this autumn. I dont want to wait that long, so my question: Are there any spare boards available somewhere? The board layout files alone (it is Eagle, right?!) would also be sufficient, I'd have the boards manufactured somewhere.

THX, hope to join the network soon.
Cheers

  Seeking an unwanted kit
Posted by: doc911 - 2014-07-03, 22:35 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Greetings All;

My name is Kevin, I am a retired, yet highly experienced forestry firefighter/medic that used to specialise in Urban Interface fire suppression & rappelling from helicopters into remote wilderness areas to suppress a fire in British Columbia, Canada. I now live in Red Deer County, in Central Alberta, Canada. I took notice that there is little in the way of representation from Canada in general & Western Canada in particular.

I just received an e-mail update stating there are no kits available until possibly later on in the year, so I decided to come here to let anyone with a spare kit that no longer is needed or if someone has lost interest with this project & wants to sell their kit, I am a willing buyer. I can pay via Visa, Paypal or UKash for European payments. I understand kits leaving Europe can contain specific pieces required by the kit to function properly & that kits may require some assembly by the purchaser. I can follow a set of plans & can use a soldering iron. If someone has a complete yet unbuilt kit I would be interested in purchasing it as well. In a nutshell, if you have a full kit of parts or a working kit that is no longer needed or wanted, I can give it a good home.

The area I live in is prone to daily, large dynamic thunderstorms rolling off of the Rocky Mountains from mid April to mid October, with the occasional small tornado. In the same area, a government backed CARISMA (Canadian Array for Real-time Investigations of Magnetic Activity) magnetometer array, a key element of the Canadian Geospace Monitoring (CGSM) project is positioned. With large portions of Canada located along the boundaries where Auroras Borealis are commonly seen, I volunteer to use time lapse photography to record AB's as part of a citizen science project studying CME's & solar wind & how they may relate to the formation of, the quantity &/or severity of lightning strikes & how massive CME's, solar wind & solar storms may relate to the development & electrical charging of particles within cloud formations that form into storm cells, lightning within thunderstorms, as well as other forms of lightning, i.e; Dry lightning, ball lightning, sheet lightning in high atmosphere cloud formations. While Auroras Borealis is normally seen at night, ejecta from CME's &/or solar storms are constantly bombarding Earth, we just don't notice it because of the available sunlight during the daytime.

It would be interesting to see the raw data & maybe even do a comparative analysis between both data sets. Either way, I'm interested in helping out, if someone has a kit that needs a good home in Canada, I have just the spot for it.

All the best, Cheers!
