Caption: Lightning detector antenna. This is the part of the device that detects the radio waves give out by lightning. This detector operates in the 10 kilo-Hertz range, and can detect lighting within a radius of 45 kilometres. This CIGRE (Conference Internationale des Grandes Reseaux Electriques) detector, is maintained and operated by CESI (the Italian Experimental Electrotechnical Centre), based in Milan, Italy. A network of such detectors can record lightning data such as the number of strikes per year and per unit area. The CESI lightning detector network, SIRF (Sistema Italiano Rilevamento Fulmini), was formed in 1994.
