    This is my first time in the forum. I would like to participate and set up receivers, my locations are:

    Maracaibo, Zulia, Venezuela (SVMC)
    El Vigía, Mérida, Venezuela (SVVG)

    I was reading about equipments and all the process, however, I would like to have a guide about how to set up and start sending information to Flight Radar.

    Thanks for your information,

    Regards,

    Alirio
    Hello Alirio,

    Like you friend YV1HX, I assume you put in a request to host FR24 kit? Once you application is approved they will send a pdf document to your email, it is quite simple to get it set up.

    If you wish to have your own set up, the cheap and easy way is to feed via a R820T dongle connected to a rpi. Peterhr has kindly documented everything here : http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...ll=1#post37114

    You will of course need to get an antenna and a suitable length coax cable and a pigtail of some sort to connect it to the dongle which is a MCX connection. Getting a good antenna at a good location will help you detect more planes. By good location it means a location with good line of sight, normally higher about your roof and not many high rise buildings or tress close to you.

    You can have a look at this website http://shop.jetvision.de/ for an idea of prices, but I am sure you can get it elsewhere if you wish. As for antenna there is also a DIY thread at the technical matters thread if you wish to refer to.

    Hope this helps.

      Welcome to this Forum!

      Did you completed the receiver request to the FR24 team?

      The location near SVVG will be great for FR24, because there is no good coverage from my receiver located in the Costa Oriental del Lago, cause the Andean mountains blocks my coverage to the south.

      Let me know if you need any help.
      Hello,

      I haven't requested anything. I just checked out some receivers and their costs. Which one do you have in the COL?, I live close from SVVG.

      Is there anyway I could contact you beside this forum, so you could help me to try to set up receivers to increase coverage in this zone.

      Thanks,

      Alirio.

        Worth a go to apply the free kit. FR24 will access whether your location is suitable, it takes 7-365 days though to know whether you get approved. Please follow this link : http://www.flightradar24.com/free-ads-b-equipment/

            Alirio, You should apply for the free kit offered by FR24, you will need also a permanent Internet service for connecting the receiver to the network.

            The installation is very easy, only needs a free Ethernet port from your ISP modem/router and a suitable place for installing the ADS-B antenna.

            A UPS available will be a great add-on. (In our Oil-Rich country, having a Power plant, or large duration UPS's systems are a REAL need, because we suffer unscheduleds power cuts several hours a week in most cities).


            I'll be happy to help you, please see my profile for the contacting options.

                Can you, for fun, check the range of T-EHAM53? I am pretty sure that's installed on the Schiphol main tower.

                    • I am seeing RX... radars showing up lately. What are those?

                      Comment


                      • Radar: RX Rxxx* are just temporary codes assigned automatically by the system, before FR24 receivers have been assigned correct code manually.

                        The radar codes lists is available on this thread on post #6

                        • Freinds The GPS stick In Fr24 box Place it in good place have influence In your cover or not?

                          • The GPS antenna should be placed where it can get a satellite fix, on a roof or window.

                            FR24 Support will contact you if there is no GPS position from the receiver.

                              can the gps receiver be positioned outside my house (near the antenna)?
                              Does the rain etc...be a problem?

                                You should have received setup instructions as an email link (PDF) which explains where to place the GPS antenna which is weatherproof.
