The following data is captured using Pitsford Hall's Boltek LD-250 lightning detector and presented by Astrogenic's NexStorm lightning detection software. The Boltek detector works by identifying the radio signals produced by lightning. Its direction-finding antenna provides information on the bearing of thunderstorms while storm distance is calculated from received signal strength.
