New to the forum - westernslade5 - 2018-05-27

Hi there!

i am a new member of Blitzortung.org and have a few queries which I would appreciate your help on.

i have been using the app on my Galaxy Note 8 and Note 3 for about 2 or 3 years, can someone tell me the significance of the numbers in the coloured square on the map.

I would also like to set up a recording station here in Swansea,UK; how does one get hold of the latest Blitzortung euipment please?

Cheers,

westernslade5

Do you mean these colored squares in the Blitzortung Lightning Monitor Android app?

Put simply, the numbers are the number of strokes in that area in the time indicated by the color of each square.
