Trying to understand the lightning signals
Hi,  and welcome to the group.
Everything related to lightning and lightning detection are welcome
The setup you are using is designed for long range bearing.
Your antennas can easily be used to our system, but WITHOUT tuning
Depending on the direction, the phase is shifted - therefore one can detect direction.
We use the Time Of Arrival (TOA) and uses a much wider frequency range, typically 3-30 (100) KHz. We do this to get a more accurate representation of the lightning discharge.
In your experiment, you can remove the capacitor of the antenna coil, and put a resistance of 2-3 KOhm instead. You get a weaker signal, but a more correct.
If your oscilloscope can be connected as X-Y scop, you can also try it with an antenna on each channel.
