Blitzortung Forum Category Heading???
« on: July 26, 2013, 04:44:10 PM »
Since many folks are beginning to build the Blitzortung lightning detector wouldn't it be nice to have a separate category just for Blitzortung hardware building information? Doing this BEFORE it gets too much traffic will save everyone time trying to find info on this topic.

Thanks to the mods for considering this suggestion!

See my poll from before.

I too would like to see Blitzortung, but I would settle for the "other than Boltek" category. There are plenty of other detector technologies out there and there isn't really a good home. Right now we have a hodge-podge of "Lightning" and "Weather Station Photos".....

Why not have a "Lightning Detection Equipment" or something similar under "Weather Station Hardware" and then child boards for "Boltek", "Blitzzortung", etc. That would eliminate the confusion of where to place these kinds of lightning topic specific posts.

I put it below the Boltek board and moved the relevant threads I could find here.

Yes, thanks Chris! A strike for you...  \:D/

BTW, I've sent a request to Egon for additional information on the Red unit. No parts available now but should be back in stock in 10 days or so. Am still reading and trying to figure out the best setup for me here in Nevada.

It looks like there may be several of us in the area who are considering biting the bullet and getting detectors going. That should help western US coverage.
