Lightning detector uses patented dual-antenna technology for unsurpassed accuracy
This sophisticated SkyScan lightning detector is commonly used by the military and major airlines. Capable of detecting lightning strikes at an accuracy of 1/4 mile or less for strikes within 1 mile and an accuracy of 1 mile for strikes within a 40-mile range. Detector also has built-in software that indicates if interference is present from outside electronic sources. Each time a lightning strike is detected, it emits an audible warning tone and lights the LED range on the detector.
