Non-Boltek Lightning Detectors
« on: February 19, 2013, 06:45:34 AM »
I am always unsure about where to post "Other Than Boltek" (OTB) lightning detectors. I tend to put posts about Hobby Boards, Thunderbolt, Eastern Voltage Research, etc. detectors in the general "Lightning" heading. This doesn't seem quite appropriate, but neither does the Boltek area.

Other Weather Hardware seems too general.

Could an "OTB" area be created? Does this make sense to others?

Or don't have Boltek anymore and replace it with lightening detectors in general.

Also the 2nd home page using modified AltDashboard 6.95 at http://stillwaterweather.com/wx/2ndhome.php

Really, that sounds a lot more organized. It's not like there's an abundance of different brands to sift through.

Hmmm....

0.3% response rate on this survey. Lots of lookers and few voters.
