  • Hi, from my point of view itīs a good coverage but, how long is the cable from the antenna to the receiver?
    About the premium account, you must "reload" the web sometimes to get an updated result. Although you see it Offline or 0Kbs, you must check it with the planes in the map to see if your radar is there..... I donīt worry it very much. Iīm not an expert but itīs my opinion. Regards.

    F-GCRR1: 565 meters high. F-GCRR2: 614 meters high. F-GCRR3: 604 meters high.
    F-GCRR5: next to the airport. Improving Canary Islands and Western Sahara MLAT.
    F-GCRR6 (Ex-FGCRR4): 358 meters high. F-GCRR7 : 300 meters high.

        Hi, I am feeding T-VOMM1 and also T-VOHS1 & T-VIDP2 which are redundant now. Would like to give away the hardware. When is your vizag feed going up?

          Great coverage from Hyderabad, roaringfire. Any news on the Vizag feeder? Still don't see one online. Are you planning to host that too?

            mvr.maa - T feeders are never redundant, they work very well as backups in case the F feeder goes down. Sometimes they show up quite a lot even with the F feeders being present. If they're not occupying any resources at your end, keep them going! :-)

                No man! Keep them running, as Jayant said. The more the better!

                • Is there a map of the feeders? How can I tell if anyone in my city is feeding FR24? I live in the States, can I tell if anyone near me has a FR24-receiver? I live in a basement apt so I can't attach an antenna to the outside, but I am curious if anyone in my county is using FR24.

                  Thanks

                  • Matt,
                    This list might help, as its "hotspots" where FR24 wants to get coverage.

                    • A map of where the feeders are located would be great....

                        FR24 has repeatedly announced that it does not have a map for public viewing. Nor will it make one available.

                        • Instead of a map of feeders/locations, why not a "saturation" map. Green areas with good coverage.... yellowish for OK'ish coverage .... red where there is a serious need of feeders. It would not give away the feeders location, will be a good indication where coverage is good/bad and might as well bring new feeders aboard who reside in the red areas.

                          Lets be honest, the list of locations where feeders are needed, is quite deep within the website, where the average browsing non-ADSB person would not really find it.

                          • "Good coverage" is not the same for everyone.

                            There could be great coverage at higher altitudes but big gaps on approach and take off. And where there is great coverage at most altitudes, the data may be from feeders with their own receivers but there's poor MLAT coverage.

                            FR24 knows where it wants to install its own receivers and, for competitive reasons, doesn't want to publish more than it already does. And it looks like installations are continuing at a steady pace with no shortage of applications.

                              It seems that out there...there's a site that register/collect all the fr24 feeders on a map...
                              I don't know if i can post the url...but it's easy to find on google....

                              Please delete this post if you think it can hurt fr24.

                              • Yes we know there are several maps out there, most updated by FR24 hosts. We understand that people are curious, but at this point there is no plan to add an official FR24 map.
                                There are several reasons.
                                * Privacy - Some users don't want to show their location
                                * Unknown positions - People are sharing through different solutions with different hardware and software. We don't have position data for all feeders
                                * Maintenance - Today we don't have resources to maintain such map

                                We think that a map should be 100% correct. We don't see the sense of having a map showing 60-70% of feeders and some incorrect positions.
