accuracy of the network
#3
The accuracy depends on a lot of factors:

- a strike has also a horizontal expansion, we reduce this to a 2D-coordinate
- trigger accuracy on the individual stations, some strikes have spread/noisy signals which are difficult to trigger
- irregularities of the radio propagation (for example echoes or sky-wave bounces)
- algorithm on the serverĀ 

As far as I understand is mds calculated from the offset between the used stations from the calculated position.

If you look at the signal of false positive strikes, you'll see that the majority of used stations have false triggers, which "accidentally" make sense to be a strike at a certain location, if it fits the tolerance. So i wouldn't nail accuracy down to the mds.
Stations: 233
