Detecting in other Zones?
#4
Like you noticed I'm on the 1st gen system green.  My max distance strike is about 5200 miles (8500 km).  I have to manually switch it with jumpers.  I switch between 11 and 28 on the gain, any higher than 28 I pick up so many strikes it goes into interference mode.  Plus I try to not send tons of unusable data and usually keep it on 11.  When there is little lightning in America I can see that I'm picking signals up in Europe and Australia, but the don't register since they are out of my region.  I attached the only pic of my antenna I could find real quick.  I started years ago so I could see if there was enough lightning in storms to bother trying to photograph.  Pretty neat hobby too.
