Lightning Detector

I am currently building a lightning detector to automatically shutdown my computers with an approaching storm. The system uses the crackle on the radio bands to detect lightning.

    Hello Skye,
    I just got one of the as3935 devices from tautic with the 0x00 bug. I want to build a device warning me while im Mountainbiking from thunderstorms. I think i will use two devices one at hom warning me through mail or sms and one mobile maybe connected to bluetooth to my mobil phone.
    For this i wanted to play with your code. Im more Hardware than Software a guy :). But i have on small Problem. I still use the old arduino 1.04 Arduino IDE and it complains on a missing definition.
    If i look in the AS3935.h file that is in the same folder i don’t see it there.
    Do you have small hint for me :).

    Best regards from Germany where we had a great thunderstorm and i couldn’t get anything on my remote controlled dev board because someone took the irq pin out :).
