Lightning Types Blitzortung Hardware Detects
#2
Yes, it primarily detects cloud-to-ground strikes.

I'm pretty sure that the C-C feature was never fully implemented by the developers. The third channel with the antenna nulls pointing directly up-and-down was originally intended for that. However, this is not to say that it does not detect them. I believe that it does.

Every once in a while, I hear some loud booms which sound quite a bit different than cloud-to-ground strikes, and the sound does not last near as as long as cloud-to-ground strikes. Looking at the lightning map, I see blue dots. I believe those are the CC lightning. I've seen those quite a bit in the last couple of months or so.
