Welcome to Blitzortung.org

Dear potential participant,

welcome to Blitzortung.org.

1.)
If you are interested to assemble and setup an own station, you can get

the VLF amplifier board PCB 5 Version 7 for 10.00 Euro and
the USB Controller board PCB 6 Version 8usb for 10.00 Euro,
= 20.00 Euro plus shipping.

The price for shipping two boards is 4 Euro all over the world. This is that what you need in any case.

The controller board PCB 6 Version 8usb only works with GPS modules having a serial TTL level interface like the EM-406A module. It also has an ISP 6-ways connector for in-system programming the ATmega 644A micro controller. This board needs two AD-converters of type ADC 0820 CCN.

If you need an RS232 level interface for the connection to your PC, you can use PCB 6 Version 8usb with a TTL-RS232 breackout board instead of a TTL-USB breackout board. If a serial TTL connection to your PC or router is sufficient, you do not need any breackout board.

Please carefully read first the document how to participate to blitzortung.org http://www.blitzortung.org/Documents/TOA_Blitzortung.pdf and http://www.blitzortung.org/Documents/TOA_Blitzortung_b.pdf for the PCB 6 Version 8usb board, respectively.

To install a TOA lightning detector is not plug-and-play!!!

2.)
If you have no possibility to programm the ATmega 644A processor, we can send you a programed processor for additional 6.50 Euro.

3.)
For participants not from Germany/Austria/Switzerland we also sell complete kits, ferrite rod antennas (if desired) and a GPS module (if desired). Note that we do not sell completely assembled boards. We have no time to assemble the kits for you. You either can assemble the kits by yourself or should find somebody who can assemble the kits for you.

The price for the VLF amplifier kit PCB 5 Version 7 is 36.35 Euro (30.35 Euro without power supply).
The Price for the controller board kit PCB 6 Version 8usb is 52.25 Euro (47.25 Euro without USB connection cable and without 10m CAT5 Network cable) (35.25 Euro without USB connection cable, without 10m CAT5 Network cable, and without TTL-USB breackout board).
You need one VLF amplifier (PCB 5 Version 7) and one  controller board (PCB 6 Version 8usb).

I can include two 12cm ferrite rod antennas for additional 43.00 Euro and an EM-406A SiRF III GPS module for additional 40.00 Euro (35.00 Euro without housing and connection cable).

The price for shipping is 17.00 Euro by DHL within the European Union (up to 5 kg), for other countries please ask.

Note that Switzerland and Norway do not belong to the European Union.

If you order more than one complete set, the price for shipping can increase depending on the weight of the parcel.

For example, the price for one complete set inclusive shipping within the EU is 188.60 Euro

VLF amplifier kit PCB 5 Ver. 7 = 36.35 Euro
USB controller board kit PCB 6 Ver. 8usb = 52.25 Euro
12cm ferrite rod antennas = 43.00 Euro
EM-406A GPS module = 40.00 Euro
Shipping = 17.00 Euro (1.5 kg)
------------------
sum = 188.60 Euro

If you are from outside of the European Union, then you should first try to get most of the material in your country. This especially concerns the material of a high weigt, because the price for shipping depends on the weight.  If you are from the United Kingdom, US, Japan or Australia, I suggest to order the kits without power supply and connection cables. (The plug of our power supplies does not fit anyway.) Then the price for a complete set without power supply and connection cables inclusive shipping world wide is 170,60 Euro.

VLF amplifier kit PCB 5 Ver. 7 = 30.35 Euro (without power supply)
USB controller board kit PCB 6 Ver. 8usb = 47.25 Euro (without USB connection cable and without 10m CAT5 Network cable)
12cm ferrite rod antennas = 43.00 Euro
EM-406A GPS module = 40.00 Euro
Shipping = 10.00 Euro (below 1kg)
------------------
sum = 170,60 Euro

If you only want certain parts, then you can use the prices shown in the last section of the Documentation.

Another possibility is to use a home made frame antenna, to buy the GPS module from amazon.com, and to buy the TTL-USB breackout board from sparcfun.com. Then the price for the two kits including shipping world wide is only 75.60 Euro.

VLF amplifier kit PCB 5 Ver. 7 = 30.35 Euro (without power supply)
USB controller board kit PCB 6 Ver. 8usb = 35.25 Euro (without USB connection cable, without 10m CAT5 Network cable, and without TTL-USB breackout board)
Shipping = 10.00 Euro (below 1kg)
------------------
sum = 75.60 Euro

I prefer money transfer to

You can also pay by PayPal to blitzortung@gmx.org, but then please add the additional PayPal fees of + 0.35 Euro and + 1.9% for european countries and + 0.35 Euro plus 3.9% for all other countries. That is, if X is the price in Euro then ( X + 0.35 )/0.981 is the PayPal price in Euro for european countries and ( X + 0.35 )/0.961 is the PayPal price for all other countries.

For example, if 188.60 Euro is the price for the complete set as computed above, then the PayPal price for european countries is 192.61 Euro and for all over the world is 196.62 Euro.

If 170.60 Euro is the price for the complete set as computed above, then the PayPal price for european countries is 174.26 Euro and for all over the worls is 177.89 Euro.

If 75.60 Euro is the price for the complete set as computed above, then the PayPal price for european countries is 77.42 Euro and for all over the worls is 79.03 Euro.

If you are still interested, please send me your postal address and the information about the material you need. Reply to this email.

Only people who are able to send data to our server will get a usernames and password for login at blitzortung.org.

Please note: Blitzortung.org is a community of volunteers with noncommercial interests. We make no contracts. A commercial use of our data is prohibited. Since most of the users have no possibility to program the ATMega644 and have difficulties to get the material in some countries, we spend our free time to buy the necessary parts here in Germany, pack them into a parcel, and ship it to you. We do all this just as a favor, there is no extra charge. Since we are no salesmen, we send no invoices for the material and service (only on occasional exception, if the users will recover the appropriate amount via official channels). We can not include the invoices we get from our local vendors, because these invoices are for the parts for several kits.
