It can pick it up but the signals from thundersnow seem to be weaker than normal thunder so I have to turn down the filtering on the receiver.
If I turn down the filtering then it also picks up false strikes from the light switches in the house, especially the strip lights in the bathroom which will create 10+ false strikes every time they're switched on.
If I'm sat at the PC then I can control it but I was at work last week when we had the thundersnow so the filtering was left in "High", it's normal setting.

Nothing so far.
The only stuff the Boltek has picked up was up north of the Faeroe's and out here we've only had rain & sleet tonight.
