Last received signals

Ever lightning detection stations of the network receives signal from strikes and also more or less noise. Here you can see some of the signals, that where received from the station Hürtgenwald during the last minutes. If other stations receives the same signal during a very short time range then maybe a lightning can be located out of the correspondending times (time of arrival method - TOA). In this case additional information about the lightning strike will be displayed here.

Additional information

If a lightning strike was detected, some additional information correspondending to the station Hürtgenwald will be displayed.

  • Runtime: Difference between time of strike and reception
  • Distance: Distance strike to station Hürtgenwald calculated from runtime (1ms = 300km)
  • Direction: Approximate direction (exact value won' be displayed due to usage limitations)
  • Deviation: The smaller, the better the locating
  • Current: Current of the strike. Very experimental! Currently almost no informative value!
  • Polarity: Positive/negative lightning. Is determined out of signal. Very experimental, only suitable for near lightning!
  • Participants: Number of stations that received the lightning strike. The more, the better.
  • Participanted: Did the station Hürtgenwald participate? If "no" is colored, then a signal has been received but it wasn't used for the calculation
  • Locating angle: Max. angle of participated station around lightning position (in parenthesis: stations that weren't used for calculation). A value of 270° would be ideal, but a good locating is also possible on much smaller values.
  • Channel: Recorded channel in the graph (if station operates in "Best Channel Mode")
