home made ferrite antennas
#9
Cutty,
you are right when the station is within a network of other stations which are reasonably close by and where the staion is filling a gap. But I am now testing a "lone" station - the first one on the Canary Islands - and there is simply no station closer than about 1000 km. In addition, the low signal attenuation over sea water gives a much better detection range than for stations on land. So for the stations which are looking out over the sea one should recommend to go for large detection range in order to cover the ocean areas, which are also interesting from lightning detection viewpoint. Over the sea location accuracy is not so important than over land, but detection efficiency is. What is your opinion on this?
Stations: 1836
