We finally had a serious thunderstorm last night, making us almost jump from the bed at one moment. And the lighting strike counter saw that thunderstorm nicely. It's quite clear the counts are lower now the sensor is closer to the ground. I'm not sure what to do to get a "good" count again. Last week I placed the 10/20/40m endfed antenna outside for part of the day and noticed that setup also influences the lightning detector in the shed. Raising the end of the antenna helped a bit, I noticed I can use the back gate of our house as the low end of the antenna.
