New Modes

The old original 10 kHz LR system information is no longer supported.

New developments on 8 Hz Schumann Cavity signals are being used now instead.

  On 8 Hz propagation is like a direct connection world wide.  Using a new method you can do some amazing things.  Using two instances of LR you can go mobile and escape all the old 10 kHz problems of station location, adjusting antennas, and calibration concerns.  Due to direct reception from the earths cavity and the way LR works, accuracy is dead on without any adjusting.  In fact calibration has to be set to zero on both remote and local or you will mess up the plot!

  Test are on going to use the worlds  Power Grids as antennas on 8 Hz.  This means that (as current test have proven in two locations now) you need not build an antenna of any kind!

Note: Manual update every ten minutes to see fresh plots.

The Schumann 8 Hz Network now has two operational stations. Several SPSM user results active.

 What is Q-Burst Lightning Radar?

This Q-Burst radar station has simultaneous world wide reception of lightning.    The location of the mobile radar unit determines the area being covered in the SPSM mode.

What is Q-Burst Lightning?

 Q-Burst are monster lightning strikes (10-20 times above normal lightning) that are so strong they ring the earths atmospheric electronic cavity like a bell being rung.  The signal then rings at 7.8 Hz which is below human hearing range.  (Thank God for that!)  This is what is being detected with some very sensitive special antennas and electronics. 


This is a prototype development effort so results may be on hold during maintenance or changes due to development efforts.

Q-Burst are the strongest of lightning strikes.  That is what gets them on this 8 Hz frequency to be detected above normal lightning signals.  TOA systems use 10 kHz area signals from the many more prevalent run of the mill strikes.

 It is very hard to compare plots with TOA stations because of delays and the missing lower level strikes that TOA will see but Schumann Q-burst radar ignores as background noise.

8 Hz propagation and the Earths cavity makes it possible to have world wide reception of Q-Burst.
