Simple to build, but powerful system for continuous monitoring of electrical discharges (lightning)

A lightning detector is a device or system designed to detect the presence of lightning discharges in the atmosphere. It’s used to monitor and provide warnings about thunderstorms and lightning activity in a specific area. Lightning detectors work by detecting the electromagnetic radiation (radio waves) produced by lightning strikes.

Recently, in one of my videos, I described the creation of a simple lightning detector that uses a sound card from a PC, to record the events of the last ten minutes.

This time I will use the same device, but now I will add some components so that the atmosphere can be monitored 24 hours a day.”
