This service is great. I'm sort of addicted. Can I embed it on a webpage somehow?

  Blitzstatistik- Anzahl/Quote ="0"
Posted by: Hoelters - 2014-06-29, 10:01 - Forum: Non-English - Replies (4)

Ich betreibe eine RED-Station mit der 6.8 Version.
Ich habe festgestellt, wenn viele Blitzaktivitäten vorhanden sind, in meiner Statistik die Blitzanzahl und -Quoten bei ALLEN Stationen auf "0" sind. (Anhang).
Die Rangfolge der Stationen stimmen aber.
Ist zB wenig Blitzaktivitäten vorhanden, so stimmen dann die entsprechenden Werte (nicht mehr "0").
Ich meine an meiner config-Einstellung kann es nicht liegen, dann wäre der Fehler ja konstant vorhanden.
Tobias, kannst du das mal bitte kontrollieren?

Im Wedaal-Board hat man mich auf dieses Forum verwiesen, da man dort leider keine Lösung gefunden hatte.

  2nd H-Field Amplifier meaningful?
Posted by: CRogoza - 2014-06-27, 18:20 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (1)

Hi there!

I'm thinking about installing a 2nd H-Field Amplifier with the Ferrid-Rods 45° offset to my current rods.
Would that increase the amount/accuracy of my station?

Thanks for your answers! Smile

Greetings, Christopher

  Strike accuracy question
Posted by: BobW - 2014-06-27, 17:30 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (2)

[attachment=1242][attachment=1243]Hi all,

I saw something last night that I had a question about. There were some storms last night slightly north of where I live. It appears that the positions of the detected lightning overshot where the lightning actually was. I think this is possibly because there were no stations receiving the lightning to the southeast of where the lightning was, and the system was just making a best guess as to where the strikes were given that it actually couldn't triangulate it on three sides.

See the attached screen shots of the radar in the area, and the Blitzortung web page. From the Wilmington area to the southeast, it was actually clear air, with no lightning.

As soon as kits are available, I'm on board with adding a station here. Hopefully that will help.

  Volt and Ampere data?

Months ago I found an experimental site showing estimated V and A for each strike, but I can't find it anymore, any clue?

  Embedding map to a website

I run a blog dealing with environmental/climate news and would love to embed this map if I am able? Of course I would fully cite and link back to the original here. If anyone could give me a hand with the embed code I would really appreciate the help.

  Station in central Brazil
Posted by: Burajirujin - 2014-06-24, 20:50 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Hello ppl,
I noticed that there are almost no stations running in South America (only found one in Colombia). I live in Goiânia, a city in the central region of Brazil (16.7 S/49.2 W).
I've become interested in running a station here for myself, but I don't know if it would help the network, since the nearest running station is 4000km away.
The system may run in high gain mode without much problems, I think, because it would stay somewhat far from the city center in a low density area, without any strong power line, transformer or big electric machine running near.
A station running here would help?

  Live Map Overlay
Posted by: cosined - 2014-06-24, 19:13 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (4)


In the above article, a GIF appears that shows your (North American) map with seemingly real-time strikes (with the ray and ripple effects), though when I load the live map all I see is a static map. I've checked and unchecked Strikes, Detectors, and Sounds, but nothing seems to reproduce the articles experience. http://www.lightningmaps.org/realtime?lang=en works fine for me.

I'm using Firefox 30.0, but it doesn't work in IE either.

Thanks for any insight!

  Blitzortung in the news again

I think Egon is going to be busy in the run-up to his holiday with such good publicity!!



However the geek article stated that you could buy fully assembled units! I think that could cause a few headaches Dodgy
