Best is BWN didn't have much high building, so as long as your antenna have a clear view sky and about 60 feets high then will be great. Thanks.

    Waking up a sleepy thread.

    Hello to all Malaysian Feeders. Happy Holidays (well done to our athletes) and Selamat Hari Merdeka.

    Just dropping a note to potentially interested people about lightning detection. This is a hobbyist setup and is not a professional lightning detection equipment. Soldering of through hole components is required and if your location has lots of electronics interference it is likely to affect reception so you need somewhere away from electrical and electronic stuffs (PCs, TVs, AC-DC power supply, Air cond outdoor unit etc). Still following me? Ok, the website is blitzortung and they sell the detector called system blue. It costs about RM1600 depending on Euro exchange rate. This includes the controller board, aluminium enclosure as well as 2 rod ferrite antennas which is about 20cm long. It can be cheaper if you just op for the receiver and antenna and no enclosure. Just google blitzortung, then go to further info > cover your area and place your email address and country to the list. There is a long waiting list so be ready to wait until you get an email from the admin.

    It has been quite interesting for me so my thoughts is some of you might be interested in it. It did take me sometime however to finalize the location of the antenna that performed to my liking. FYI lightning detection range can be quite far, thousands of KMs.

    hope everyone is well! Enjoy the holiday.

    Yup, the sleepy thread... pinching my thigh if I am sleep walking now hehe

    Need to extend the antenna height as the coverage distance I am achieved so far 146nm. Hopefully I am managed to do it this coming weekend. The current height is about 4m from the ground, a new plan is to be set up is another 1.5m by using the hollow aluminium. Roughly I will be getting 6 or 6m overall in height. I am afraid as at 85kg in weight and at the age reaching 50, climbing a ladder with shaky knees to be expected. Wish me luck.
