    But I don't know whether the MLAT data is compatible with FR24 Format as I just use the Flightfeeder port 30005 PlanePlotter Format as source of data...
    Hmm... I guess i'll update too thanks!

    Radar code of mine will be changed from T-VHHH19 to T-VHST9 due to my participation of "Beta test new Flightradar24 MLAT software for Raspberry Pi".

    Please pay attention!

    I have applied twice for my home same location in 2013, 2015, but all cases got no reply after filling step one doc sheet...
    Maybe they think my location has many natural barriers like hills but they don't know I am one of the feeder which can provide good unique coverage for Hong Kong South...

    Further more, I just lost contact with manufacturer of Flightfeeder 5 months already. I have email the situation to CEO once I can connect Flightfeeder to Router using Wifi Dongle by own DIY in March, but no reply, no follow up, no replacement schedule...
    I think they have already given up my location as VHHH has good coverage and adequate feeders in Flightaware already...

    It seems MLAT Service is activated in Pearl River Delta Region, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Macau, Shanghai and Taiwan.

    You guys may have a look!

    Thanks twfr,

    I made a biquad antenna out of a turkey roasting pan and a coat hanger. Mounted my RTL dongle on the back, waterproofed it with liquid electrical tape, then strapped it to my balcony facing north. From there ran the USB cable inside to RPi. I am happy with the results vs the cost.
