Hobby Board - Lightning Detector.

Post by petesvue » Fri 13 Jul 2018 5:11 pm

I have obtained a Hobby Board Lightning detector and would like to use it for detection only, not as a logger on a oww. Hobby Boards are no longer operating and i cannot find any information about it.
If anyone can help with a simple circuit either audible warning or leds i would appreciate your help.
