Time to UPDATE
« on: January 25, 2024, 08:41:45 PM »
RED and BLUE operators should upgrade to the latest 10.2 beta firmware.
https://forum.blitzortung.org/showthread.php?tid=3789
This will prep you for future upgrades and enable new/updated features and data flow.
For example: Starting with Firmware 10 the whole traffic between stations and servers can be encrypted.

The above two links are only valid for registered operators...

IMPORTANT NOTE: something several of us have been trying to emphasize for some time:

The station data on Lightningmaps is just not usable any more. The reasons for that are the server burning, wrong data from Blitzortung import and other problems. The code is still based on my completely outdated MyBlitzortung scripts. It just doesn't make sense for me to put any effort in repairing this. Instead there will be a complete rewrite sooner or later. I just hope it will be this year.

Thanks, Mike.

I forgot how to get the bin file at first, but I managed to find it and download/install.

Both Red/Blue seemed to go OK.

I should have put the direct link to the new repository in the above, added it.
Direct link to new firmware repository:
https://docs.lightningmaps.org/station-operation/firmware/
rather than force folks through the NEW forum topic, I suppose.

Stations still running FW9.2 --- or lower --- should apply the newest firmware (cumulative major differences attached)
