  Missing Parts - 47 ohm resistors
Posted by: gadjex - 2014-07-18, 00:48 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (11)

I got my red kit in yesterday Smile for the Amplifier 12 Ver 3c and Controller 10 Ver 4 and I used the inventory sheets to inventory the order. I received a few extra parts and I am missing a few parts. I am missing 3 - 47 ohm metal film resistors. I have 3 extra 49.9 ohm metal film resistors and 1 1N4148 Diode. Can I substitute the 49.9 ohm for the 47 ohm? The amp needs 2 and the controller needs 1? I used a Fluke multimeter to check the value of all the resistors and double checked that I am missing the 47 ohm ones.

Edit: Found where the 6 extra 2.2k metal film resistors go. OOPs Big Grin

  Mising parts need mouser parts
Posted by: zendick - 2014-07-17, 03:37 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (5)

capacitor 22nf 223
http://www.mouser.com/Passive-Components...ic&FS=True

transistor bc338
http://www.mouser.com/Search/Refine.aspx?Keyword=bc338

any help is much appreciated, the build docs do not have the specs for these parts.

Also a quick question, the solder contact on the bottom of the amplifier board at R27 does not exist, I was able to get a good wick out the top of the joint but I was wondering if this is a problem, should i clean of the resin and solder in a ring or leave it. Didn't notice until bard was nearly complete.

  Looking for a receiver
Posted by: va3mw - 2014-07-16, 14:36 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

Hi All

We are looking to install some of these in Ontario, Canada, but as there is no hardware available, would anyone care to sell me one that is either still in a kit more or even completed and currently isn't in service or that you don't need anymore?

We would like to get it completed while the summer thunderstorm season is going on.

Many thanks all

Mike

  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.

Hi, where can I find a circuit description and parts list, so that I can complete the amplifier PCB 5 V5? The online docs do not show the Oldies...

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!
