Additional information

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

  • Runtime: Difference between time of stroke and reception
  • Distance: Distance stroke to station 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 stroke. 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 stroke. The more, the better.
  • Participanted: Did the station 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")
