Title: How Accurate?
Post by: Cutty Sark Sailor on August 28, 2016, 04:53:25 PM
Well, depends on a lot of factors, but:

Three observed strokes from LMO, Aug 28, 2016
compared with Actual Observation.

Note that the one stroke plotted as Experimental was intra-cloud anvil crawler
exactly over the station location. Other two marked within meters of C-G strike
point... (Physically observed) Other stroke not 'tagged' could not get physical
observation.
Also note that Frankfort A and Frankfort B (RED and BLUE) are both at the
approximate FRANKFORT B plot location in the image, not separated. Also
BLUE receiver working on extremely low gain setting E channel only during this period.
