  • Well i only entered what co-ordinates were on my alias feeder software program not sure what they are after, i cant get on line right now as i have nothing to feed into the system. I will send and updated postion it thats what they want. I filled out the application as requested and did the second part as well. Ok i have sent a email to your support indicating my co-ordinates as per on the net for corunna ontario canada. Hope it helps. The co-ordinates were 42 47N and 82 21W.

    Mike will this be good enough for my application giving the co-ordinates. Maybe i entered the wrong numbers the other day when applying LOL.

    • I really wish Hanoi's feeder F-VVNB1 could somehow improve the range. Limited range at present and could't help reduce that void at Hainan Island, China.

        Christmas Island ? They have limited "free" data package.

        That poor Feeder will have to dig deep into his pocket to pay for the data charges.

          That sort of situation (and 3G) was why I was asking about the amount of traffic the box generates and what could be done to minimise it:-
          * if no traffic, box polls maybe once every two or three minutes (or even if there is traffic box polls less often than the standard)
          * data compression to reduce byte count
          * MLAT not attempted

          It would be even better if people doing the satellite uplink or the airport could run the receiver, so it's not a poor feeder that pays and it becomes a value added service for the community (that they can see the mail plane coming in from Indonesia or Darwin)

          • Mike or anyone is support! Still waiting to hear back about whether or not i am going to receive a FR24 box kit. Been anxious to get back up and running again and feeding into FR24, my account of course is not active as i cant feed into the system until i hopefully get one of these packages. Almost ready to give up. But i will wait a few more days.

            Hope to hear soon.

            • Hang on. You had a supplied dongle, you found it doesn't work with the cheap USB cable, so all of a sudden you say you have nothing to feed and are applying for the full scale box now and putting the pressure on instead of fixing the original issue and getting the USB stick back to a spot with good coverage?

              Confused.

                I just quote my last post again.

                All applications are handled one by one. Some may take 3-4 days from application to approval, other may take up to 3-4 months, depending on location or where we need to improve coverage.

                • Is it possible to find a 3G or WLAN driver for usb to fr24 box. It would be much easier and better to have that option. If I'm not mistaken, it is based on Linux, so it should not be a problem, just do not know the kernel version. I apologize if you've already written about it, or if I'm wrong place to post .... I am a new ...

                    We are trying some different WiFi USB sticks. Once we find a model that is stable we will support it officially.

                        Certainly agree with you Oblivian. And surely it's easy to get a R820T dongle off the internet? eBay or websites like that.

                        • I hear you guys, but im not spending extra money on stuff i feel dosent work well in the first place and as for the cheap USB cable it was a good one, it cost me almost 50.00 Canadian, if i spend any more money and i cant get a FR24 package i would rather spend the money on that equipment instead. I just thought i could get a package that they are offering.

                          • I'm just wondering if the problem might be the windows-8 update that does strange things to the USB power that people were mentioning a week or two back, rather than the non-cheap USB cable (though my was-cheap usb cable wouldn't work with my paid-out-of-my-own-pocket dongle).
