I'm amazed how lightning can be detected at such long distances, and how fast it can be displayed. As well how many strikes some areas receive during a storm. Now whenever we have a weather system come through I check the weather radar then this site to see the lightning activity we might expect.

Myself and a few of my friends are amateur radio operators (Hams) and also members of Canwarn, (volunteer severe weather spotting and reporting program) from what I've read this a similar to Skywarn Europe. I sent them link for this site and we have been discussing the possibility of setting up a detection system. Its something we might like to do in as a group project in the future.

Great site and thank you to the founder and the volunteers who developed, support and maintain this web site.

Here is the coverage map.

Depending where you are located in Canada you may be able to get on the list with a higher priority.

They are looking to put more detectors in underrepresented areas.

Hi there!
A station here in Manitoba! we could ALWAYS use more stations, especially the big gap in sask! Check out the "cover your area" to set up a station!
