Both are useful but are single detectors and so suffer from poor accuracy. A better overall picture is here:

In reply to G8ADD:

I used the storms on Monday to good effect. The one over Birmingham allowed me to have a 3-way ssb contact with Graham G3VKV in Cheltenham and Rob M0DTS near Middlesbro’. We all pointed at the storm and bingo!

At the same time there was an almighty storm in JO00 at the Kent coast and that was what I used to contact Marc F6DWG/p:

Storms have applications for 10G SOTA although one would not want to be too near one!
