Yeah but you can’t just join up on Blitzortung that easily. I’ve been on a waiting list for years, and I keep re-applying. Nothing. And you can’t make your own circuit and contribute. You HAVE to buy all the components, get PCBs fabbed, solder the things together yourself, then program it.
I actually bought one of those from Playing with Fusion. They have a little breakout board. I hooked it up to an Arduino Due which needed a bit of code modification but it worked. It’s… okay. It can detect most strikes, but the reliability is not great and it picks up a lot of noise. Most of the time it detects lightning as a “disturber” which means it knows some sort of electrical noise happened, but it can’t tell if it’s actually lightning. Also you can trigger it with the spark from a cigarette lighter.
Oh. Well that’s much less interesting as compared to the last time. I was hoping for a meteor strike or something.
Thank you for contributing this information. I hope your health issues get better.
Something similar happened in Basel, Switzerland on June 26th. We never did figure out what happened there either.
It’s a raised foundation. It’s currently installed at 1m above the ground. I was just concerned about the proximity to concrete (concrete is typically slightly radioactive, or so I hear). I could move it away from the concrete, but I would have to violate the 1m guideline. Okay so I’ll leave it right where it is. Thanks.
Huh. NSA/CSE must be redirecting all my IP traffic through their Toronto creeping facility.
Okay so the exact coordinates including elevation are as follows:
The detector is mounted as true to your recommendations as I could get it, but unfortunately it is somewhat close (~50 cm) to a poured foundation wall. Should I move it? I can easily, that’s no big deal. But if I do, it’ll have to go higher.
Nevermind. My bad. It just teleported to Toronto. Can you move it back to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada? Thanks.
Neat. I mean, I’m sorry that your son had an invasive scan and I hope he’s okay. But the rest is neat.
Excellent. Exactly what I was looking for. Props on the new website, by the way. I’m not sure about the green superman shields, but the detailed graphing when you click on a node is top notch!
Yeah I just gave up and bought one. Maybe I’ll relocate the one that I built in the garage or something.
