    Yeah, sorry. LOL. I mean Rapa Nui, Easter Island or Isla de Pascua. Yours Chatham Island would also be a great location to track South America/Oceania traffic.

    Yet another one in the Pacific.

    That's true. One radar in Eatern Island would be great too.

    Yet another new feeder in the Pacific. Keep 'em coming - we Aussies and Kiwis might even get Norfolk and Lord Howe if we're real good.

    F-NFTV1 -Lupepauʻu International Airport, Vavaʻu, Tonga

    Full credit to FR24 for the number of feeders being installed on Pacific Islands. When there is a lot of trans-Pacific traffic around, the screen is starting to look quite impressive.

    F-YFDF1 Fortescue Dave Forrest Airport near Cloudbreak Mine, Western Australia

    Another of the many private jet airstrips built in remote Australia by resources companies. YFDF is only used for closed charters by several operators. The new FR24 feeder seems to cover a fairly wide area around the mine and gets down to almost ground level on the strip which is about 1600ft ABSL. The three screen shots attached show a Qantaslink B717 that has just landed. The strip is not visible on Google maps but can be seen in the satellite view. The third, zoomed out shot shows where in WA the strip is located.

    F-YGGH1 Honiara, Solomon Islands

    Always good to spot a new feeder on an island.

    T-SMJP1

    Since 10-dec-2015 T-SMJP1 is operational.
    This is the 3rd feeder in Suriname for FR24 after F-SMZO1 and F-SMZO2.
    Although the name implies the feeder is close to SMJP, ground movement at SMJP is next to none.

    Range is 220 - 270 nm depending on altitude and that is (at the moment) better than F-SMZO1 and F-SMZO2

    Tomas, the returns you see after the 300nm mark are just phantom signals, they are not counted and are probably reflected signals due to atmospheric conditions, I have been getting the same for the last few months now, if you look at the boot log on the FR24 box you will see that the max range is set at 350nm, anything over this or any signal that is not fully verified will be rejected, try running Virtual Radar Server and set it to map your range, you will find that it will not plot these phantom signals although you will occasionally see a plane appearing on the map at those distances, I am in the UK and have seen planes appearing over Denmark at over 360nm but not being plotted by VRS.

    Hi Ben,..

    Have you heard of a Program called Virtuelradar Server,..

    Maybe if you download and instal it ,.. You can find some use for it..

    My feed is T-LLSD17. Been running it for 3 weeks now, using a dongle with the small antenna. I'm getting a maximum of 50nm, and average of 7nm. It's not a lot, but my location is such that I see most of the flights that enter or leave the country.
    I've ordered a large antenna two weeks ago, but it could take a while...
    I know that people build their own antennas. I've looked at the instructions, but I'm not a hardware person, and without the appropriate tools, I think I won't be able to make anything worthwhile :-(

    I'm also running Virtual Radar Server, so I have a log of all the flights I see. I'm trying to find an elegant way to analyze the data. Currently I manually export the data to csv, import to an Access DB, and use Excel for analysis, using PivotTables.

    I would love to host a FR24 box, but I don't have a 360 degree view, and I also have some buildings around me. Still I have a pretty clear view to the east (this is where I get the 50nm), but I guess it's not enough to request an FR24 box.
