    I wonder what’s the amount of x-rays being produced here:

    Great photo, Radhoo –and thanks.

    * More than just Xray class radiation, lightning strikes produce brief but powerful “TGFs”: terrestrial gamma-ray flash. They’re relatively rare –fewer than 100 per day detectable by satellites. Less common are gamma ray surge build-ups preceding the lightning strike –per:

    Thanks, Radhoo. Let’s see if that snags more hits and members.

    By the way: are you aware that the DIY forum has evaporated?

    I merged it to the current Community forum. Would you like it back, as a separate forum?

    It’s more like the DIY/experimental forum has been eliminated, along with its old posts (less chance of confusion that way), but I quite agree with your decision to maintain one forum instead of two. There haven’t been enough posts, so funneling it all into this forum seems more viable than isolating what comments we have.

    * I’d rather post new comments than spend time amending old stuff.

    * For what gets logged to the radiation map, my suggestion is that the emphasis be on standardization (detector, software, outside placement/siting, shelter) –relegating the DIY/experimental, home designed and cobbled to off-line efforts.

    Whoa: I see all the old stuff posted again –but maybe I was confused about accessing it earlier –but thanks(!) if you’ve since pasted it all back into our General forum, Radu.

    Most likely it was some synchronisation issue. Great it is all ok now!
