Great day, my boards arrived from Element 14 today.

Did more research on the RF lightning detector and looked at some options for the flash detector.

I plan to keep both simple so that they are easy to build for others interested in duplicating my work.


I was hoping to make some measurements over the weekend, but in true murphy fashion, none of the thunderstorms triggered.

Just like a taxi, they are never around when you need one. 


I also ordered part of my surprise.


I will get some pictures soon, but in another expected result, the camera battery was dead.

I remember my old film camera would stay ready 24/7, so the new technology has limitations. 


I am encouraged that the other people in the challenge are getting their boards and their projects underway.

Looks like some good applications.
