Hello,

It has been a while since I posted here but I got my Boltek Lightning detector back up and running on my new computer. Although I found one with a PCI slot the new case was compact and hard to include the full size PCI Lightning card. See topic: http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=35891.0  So I had to decide what to do after the old computer went down in February. Things were further delayed by my back injury towards the end of February so after recovering  I got back to working on it in July and decided it would be better to upgrade to a new LD 350 from Scaled Instruments since it was better price than direct from Boltek.

The Installation was smooth and since I cannot climb up on the roof easily I used the original antenna and it's been running since the end of July but unfortunately the Monsoon has been a bust so far with way below normal rain and lightning activity. It can be seen at the following link  http://pepperridgenorthvalley.com/lightning.php  it is running on LIghtning 2K 5.6.1 the last version I have of the now defunct Aninoquisi website sadly because of Mark's passing but I got it to work with windows 10. As I really like the storm analysis with the L2K software

I also got my Microsferics receivier finally working on the new computer and I am now contributing to the their Lightning Network.  Pepperridge North Valley is pleased to announce the addition of a new page to our website it is located at the following link: https://tinyurl.com/y4wrw65f This page displays the regional lightning strike plots of the Microsferics TOA (Time of Arrival) network which uses multiple network stations to triangulate more accurately plot Lightning stikes. #Monsoon #Lightning #weather #fb

I've looked on all of my old computer's backups but I cannot locate my Lightning 2K software.

Does anyone know if it's posted anywhere or for sale anywhere?
I understand that the author has passed away.

Sorry I have not seen the software posted anywhere for sale. The key is you need your base map installed to properly plot and record strikes without the software does not plot strikes properly
