I'm interested in getting a lightning detector. It must display strikes
in X-Y form (e.g., on a map, though an unmarked screen is probably OK),
and it'd be really nice if I could record the data stream and play it
back fast on demand.
It looks like I'm talking several hundred bucks here. So far, those
with Linux software I've found are the Boltek LD-250 (list $800, eBay
$375), and the Hobby Boards Lightning Detector ($32.50).
The Boltek one seems rather steep, especially just for a "****s and grins"
thing. What's the Linux software like on that, anyhow? The software that
comes with it only runs in Windows, of course.
The Hobby Boards one is a great price, but it only detects lightning's
presence, not even its range. Not at all what I want.
So, are there others I haven't found?
