Utilizes the Blitzortung lightning network to display near-real time lightning strikes and radar from around the world. We will probably start with a minimal basic version similar to that what we are currently testing, see the pictures above. Also, the discussion board is a good place for all questions and they will be quickly answered there. For the recording of the signals we have developed a special detector. It would be nice to be able to center on my location, or to be able to set the alert to always be at my location.

A lot of questions have already been answered there. The lightning activity is additionally displayed at our website on several public maps in real-time. By zooming the map in, more stations may be visible. I watched lightning strike a mountain in east Idaho and had it on the map before the thunder got here and minutes before RadarScope. For the construction and operation of a lightning detector a basic understanding of the used reception technique is necessary.

The aim of the project is to establish a low budget lightning location network with a high number of stations. The controller provided counter values from which we could compute the time stamps with an accuracy of one microsecond. Works well for going to the pool or baseball games. The receiving stations approximately record one millisecond of each signal with a sampling rate of more than 500 kHz. In addition, the amplifier and filter system have been changed as well as the digital part. This is achieved by the dimension of the controller board and the arrangement of the terminals. To always show a certain station, hold down on the station's icon until the device vibrates.

The essential difference between the two systems is the way how these systems are assembled. To reduce the load on the device, stations are clustered when the map zoom is very small. For general questions about Blitzortung. The time stamps were transmitted to our servers by a tracker program which was continously running on a personal computer. Unfortunately, All these samples were recorded after the signal had exceeded the threshold.

The sources of the signals we locate are in general lightning discharges. With this information from several stations the exact positions of the discharges are computed. In the mountains, this app doesn't work as well likely due to blockage from the mountains to the detectors. The price for the hardware currently is less than 300 Euro. We provide kits for Red System only in exceptional cases to interesting locations and to participants that have sufficient experiences with the construction of electronic devices. The sferic positions are free accessible in raw format for all users that transmit their data to our servers. All in all, definitely worth it, but if you want dependable functionality probably just use the website.

All people who keep the network in operation are volunteers. The network consists of more than 500 lightning receivers and some central processing servers. BlitzortungLive is an Application for monitoring Lightning-Strikes at nearly realtime. I look forward to seeing updates that improve this app. Since autumn 2014, we do not deliver boards for the still up-to-date System Red. System Red is a kit with mainly wired components.

There is no restriction on membership. Later on, the system can be extended by further components and adjusted according to the experience acquired. From then, the system could be connected to a router and run without additional tracker program on a personal computer. The Lightning-Strikes are displayed nearly in realtime on the Map. As far as the app itself goes, it is certainly functional, but could use some work. If a station stops pooling its data, the server stops providing the access to the raw data for the user of that station.

The current status of system blue and when and how it can be ordered, can be found in the. To keep the cost of potential participants as low as possible, the participants should try to get as much as possible of the necessary electronic parts from local providers. Not a tremendous amount , but enough to make big changes in some locations. System Blue is also prepared for an installation in a compact housing. .
