A Storm!

Had a storm come through the area when I was at work. Luckily I had the Tautic board running and collecting data. I have just spent some time processing the data and I am now rather hopeful that this might work. Unlike previous times when It hardly registered any strikes, this time it registered a million. Have no clue if they were all real, but they do start at a distance, come to a close approach of 5 km, and then increase again. The times correlate well to when the storm passed by my wife’s recollection and by when it past where I work some 20 miles north.

I did find that my energy calculation was bogus. I had the endianess of the 3 byte value wrong. Will be updating the GitHub code shortly.

    I am looking for code to use the AS3935 breakout board with a arduino uno or 2560
    I have tried SPI and could not get it to tune the chip. I would like to try I2C
    It would help a lot to have wire pin outs
    Thanks for any help

      You do not mention what breakout board you are using, how you have it connected, nor why it would not tune.

      With some further details, I may be able to help.
