  • Philippine Feeder Update

    [QUOTE=paradiselost;54413]Typhoon Glenda/Rammasun has now passed the Philippines leaving destruction and power outage for millions across Luzon (Manila) and Albay (Legaspi). These two areas are where our feeders are located.

    The results of the typhoon destruction and loss of power on our FR24 network are this:

    Working either on generator or a typhoon proof location:

    F-RPLL1 (Manila) Manila NAIA Airport, Ok, not interrupted feeding.
    F-RPVM1 (Cebu Mactan Airport) No Serious exposure, Online Reliable.
    F-RPVT1 (Bohol) Bohol Tagbilaran Airport, Online, No Serious exposure.
    F-RPVD1 (Dumaguete/Sibulan) Negros Oriental, Dumaguete Airport, Online No serious exposure.
    T-RPVD2 (Siquijor Province) across from Negros Oriental, Dumaguete Airport, Online No serious exposure.
    F-RPWD1 (Davao) Davao Mindanao Airport, Online No serious exposure.
    F-RPMZ1 (Zamboanga) Zamboanga Mindanao Airport, Online No serious exposure.
    F-RPVB1 (Bacolod/Silay) Negros Occidental. Online No serious exposure.

    Locations that are offline due to typhoon destruction-power outage or other problems:

    F-RPLL2 (Manila) Off-line
    F-RPMB1 (General Santos) General Santos receiver site has been missing for a long time due to unknown reasons.
    F-RPLP1 (Legazpi) Legazpi Albay Airport. The typhoon eye wall followed the coastline and had 185 kph winds probably destroying the receiver site. Power outage alone will keep it off line for maybe a week even if the location was not destroyed.

    Two new receiver locations in the Philippines should show up this week.

    /QUOTE]

    Here is an update to the status of feeders in the Philippines.


    F-RPLL1 Luzon Island, Manila, Ninoy Aquino International Airport
    F-RPLL2 Luzon Island, Manila, Ninoy Aquino International Airport
    F-RPLP1 Bicol Island, Albay, Legazpi City, Bicol International Airport
    F-RPVB1 Negros Island, Negros Occidential, Silay/Bacolod, Bacolod-Silay City International Airport
    F-RPVD1 Negros Island, Negros Oriental, Sibulan/Dumaguete City, Sibulan/Dumaguete Airport
    F-RPVM1 Cebu Island, Cebu/Mactan, Mactan-Cebu International Airport
    F-RPVT1 Bohol Island, Tagbilaran, Tagbilaran Airport
    F-RPML1 Mindanao Island, Cagayan de Oro. Cagayan De Oro Airport
    F-RPMZ1 Mindanao Island, Zamboanga City, Zamboanga International Airport
    F-RPMB1 Mindanao Island, General Santos, Tambler/General Santos International Airport (Actual airport code is RPMR. RPMB is an old Air Force base. All commercial flights use RPMR. FR24 and all other sites continue to use RPMB. GES should be translated into RPMR.)
    F-RPWD1 Mindanao Island, Davao City, Francisco Bangoy International Airport

    T-RPVD2 Siquijor Island, Larena, Sibulan/Dumaguete City, Sibulan/Dumaguete Airport

    The one new feeder, F-RPML1 in Cagayan de Oro is online now and F-RPMB1 has reappeared which accounts for the two receivers shipped. F-RPMB1 must have required a receiver replacement.

    Electricity rates in the Philippines are among the highest in the world so it is noticed that some stations are switching off their receivers at night time. As far as I can tell, all are on during the daylight hours.

    The Philippines is MLAT ready as soon as the latency problem is overcome.

    • F-SSZR1 activated in Santa Rosa, Brazil ...its location is not correct, actually is in El Soberbio- Misiones - Argentina...
      is possible to correct that error?

              • Open Skies Agreements Are the Victims in Tit for Tat

                This mornings Bloomberg article was troubling.

                http://t.co/RgvpaqCLUU

                As of this morning Air France, SAS and Lufthansa were still taking routes over Northern Russia.

                Where will all of this go, as the heavy weights go toe to toe with the Russian leader?

                The traveling public and the Russian people will both lose if Airbus and Boeing and the engine manufacturers are restricted by governments from doing business with Russian airlines. Safety will go out the window if the aircraft lose the manufacturers support. If safety is at risk, who will insure them? Certainly not LLoyds of London.

                I hope this resolves to protect our loyal feeders in Russia. We all depend on commerce for our daily living that is provided by airlines being able to fly the shortest routes at the lowest cost to us the beneficiarys. Lets hope the internet is not blocked in Russia to keep our feeders uploads from reaching the servers.

                We all are stake holders in this freedom.

                • Should we allow Russia to hinder the investigation of the shooting down of MH17 and the search of the victims remains to give families some closure, invading another country? Russia can blackmail all it wants but all it is doing is putting itself into isolation from the rest of the World.

                    They cant "have the cake and eat it" - can they ?

                    Place sanction against another nation because of difference in ideology and still want free lunch.

                    Then, withdraw aircraft leasing to cause the collapse of a start-up airline - next might be refusal to support spare parts for Boeing & Airbus aircrafts.

                    Russians are very patient - only embargo the food items and now maybe ban ALL overflights for nations participating in sanction.

                    I hope the Russian will turn OFF the Gas this coming Winter.

                    I am not taking sides - but looking at things on both sides of the coin.

                      Banda Aceh, Indonesia's FR24 receiver is activated already. Wow that's fast. Don't see it at the moment though...

                      F-WARR1 range is quite good too...bit like T-WARR2.

                        I only saw it a couple of hours (few days back) and haven't seen it since. Same for the Tioman receiver.

                        • Howdy fellas. K-BLV1 here.

                          Noticed a lot of FedEx and UPS traffic flying over my area around 0000 CDT (inbound) and 0300 CDT (outbound)
                          Pretty awesome if I say so myself.

                          Catch a lot of the KORD/KSTL traffic too (WN and AA). Furthest so far has been 320nm.

                          • asdc.jpgHi all especially Malaysians. Guys I wanted to ask, is the radarcape legal in our place??? Will the custom confiscate it? I live nearby the airport (WMSA) and im planning to purchase one soon.

                              Hello there,

                              To answer your question, it is unlikely that customs will confiscate it. They might 1) charge a customs fee 2) ask you to apply for a SIRIM permit which you need to pay RM30 I think. All F receivers sent to Malaysia has come online as far as I know, some did not need additional documents (minority) and most of us did have to apply for a SIRIM permit +/- import permit.

                              There is a thread for feeders from Malaysia to discuss things which you can find from here : http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...Malaysia-Radar

                              As far as I know, Subang has good coverage down to 0ft, by T-WMSA8. There is quite a number of feeders around KL, but if you are willing to purchase a radarcape and this is something of deep interest to you, of course the feed will be most welcomed. FR24 however cannot satisfy you if you wish to see your radarcode showing on FR24. Hope this helps, good luck!

                              • One advantage of running your own receiver (not an FR24 supplied one) is that you can choose to share your data with other trackers if you want to - something FR24 prohibit doing from the FR24 version of the RadarCape.

                                The more you run proprietary stuff the more locked in you get.

                                That says the FR24 receiver does enable MLAT.

                                I've just started feeding FlightAware from my Pi running their new lightweight PiAware feeder software alongside the FR24 feeder.

                                I did have a reason to post here, but I've forgotten it now - don't you hate it when that happens?
