New station, very low stroke number
#1
Hi at all!

In the past days I got a new system red station (number 1251), mounted on a extra urban location.

Somebody can tell me if my data are corrects? Thanks!!

I connected to ground the main controller and now i reduced a lot the noise, so I can get an higher amplification, as shown on the screenshot:

   

Now I have some question in order to improve the quality of my station:

1) Why there is a big difference between channel A and channel B? It's normal?
2) I mounted the amplifier in the same pole of antenna TV, it can generate noise?
3) The amplifier is mounted vertically, with rod ferrite antennas at 90 degrees. It's good in this way or I have to mount it horizontally?
4) To link the amplifier to the controller I use an unshielded ethernet cable, this can create interference to amplifier if it is near the ferrite rods?

Here there is my page: http://www.lightningmaps.org/blitzortung...91&lang=it

Thanks for your patience!!

Regards, Gianfranco

each receives signals from different directions

possibly, but not likely. Possible affects signal reception depending on mast material and distance from the antenna.

Amplifier in any position. H field ferrites should be in horizontal, with shortest possible wire connection to amplifier

Yes, that cable must be shielded.
