Mostly my interest is in providing early warning of destructive lightning which has occurred over the years... people get whacked and property gets damaged. I have a couple of circuit boards from AMS but they've dropped out of the game and don't support these devices anymore...

... here's my deal, why not just release the circuit design to us (suggesting that there are those that can read them) and allow us to build them from scratch? What, is someone trying to PATENT a specific circuit design for this purpose? Are you kidding??? All of the participants at should have the same mindset... lightning reporting with NO PROFIT IN MIND!

Maybe you've (whom ever YOU are) moved on to other more profitable efforts, I certainly understand the need to make a living, but don't start something that you can't finish... 5000+ orders for devices is just absurd and shouldn't be suggested as acceptable by anyone... perhaps I should just make my own detector and interface and cut you out of the whole thing?

This not about the EU, which you obviously live in... this is about destructive lightning weather that we in the US deal with every year. It starts fires in dry regions and causes millions if not tens or hundreds of millions of dollars of damage every year. Yes I understand that lightning is a "global" phenomenon but as such and as you very well know, I nor "we" can do anything about where it happens... seems to me the whole point of you creating this device is to support early warning of destructive lightning, so get off the stick or share your knowledge so that others that have the time and resources can further this effort.

I am pretty sure your "constituents" will agree...

Perhaps you should make your own detection network, the issue isn’t so much the detectors but rather the server network to process the terabytes of data! That costs real money and effort, if anyone could build detectors then the network would crash under the weight of (often poor or corrupt) data, by controlling the manufacture and supply of detectors the data integrity can be improved and the server demand anticipated. 
Try looking at the global picture rather than just your own back yard!
