Green system - meteovergne - 2019-10-04

Hi,

I read several times on this forum that the GREEN system will stopped soon. Is this true ? Is there an ending date ?

I ask this question because I have the opportunity to buy several used green stations.

Thanks for your answer.

Best regards,
Alexandre.

Alexandre,
My last information is that the server still accepts Green Data, and there is no firm decision to 'drop"such data.  However Green is obsolete, and no longer supported.  The Green data is liimited for any future use, especially with other lightning parameters outside of detection and limited accurate locating.  It is somewhat like comparing a 15cm black and white air signal television with a 150cm Digital HD TV.  Green systems work extremely well within their design and technology limitations. They are what they are, however.

Cheers!
Mike

Hi,

that's right, what Mike said. We keep the green stations running, but we do not want to support these stations any further. The hardware and the tracker software are completely outdated. Only fragments of the signals are transmitted. You need a permanent running PC, etc.
