About the lightning detector

Boltek PCI Lightning Detector SystemThe lightning detector is a Boltek StormTracker PCI system. The picture at the left depicts the antenna (black box, above) and the PCI card to analyze the data coming from the antenna. The software to further analyze and plot the data is Astrogenic NexStorm V1.9.1.8120:PCI.

The system records four types of lightning:

+CG Positive cloud to ground strike.
-CG Negative cloud to ground strike.
+IC Positive in cloud or intracloud strike.
-IC Negative in cloud or intracloud strike.
Noise - electrical signals from other sources than lightning.

Tom at has an excellent writeup on lightning detection.

Our lightning data is submitted to for the USA, SouthWest and NorthWest maps and summarized for presentation here by WASP2 (V2.3.3792.22547) from Astrogenic.
