  • Flightradar box problems

    Hello to everyone.
    i'm Luca and i'm writing from Pisa , italy.
    today i received FR24 box to become a Flightradar24 host.

    i mounted the antenna on my ham tower and i connected the Gps and the ethernet cable to my ADSL router.

    i downloaded the Flighradar24 program and started to receive...

    with a big surprise i t didn't work.

    the program screen shot gives to me these informations:

    Position:N43.849 E10.450
    GND: YES Mode S : NO
    Protocol Tcp
    Basestation : Error
    Network :OFF
    Info : No aircraft , at least 2 required
    TX/AC Loss : 0.0%/0.0%

    LED on the radar box:

    POWER : green always on
    Mode S : blonking high speed red
    GPS : blinking green

    if i disconnect the Mode-S antenna back to the FR24 box the LED starts to blink slowly in red....if i make the same under the antenna ( type N connector ) the LED light makes the same.

    so it means that the RF low loss cable is full workin'.

    i don't know why it doesn't work

    can anyone halps to me?

    many tks to everyone

      You don't neeed any program to feed to fr24 site!
      Just plug everything and send mail to fr support that you are ready!
      FR24 will assign you radar name (F-LDDU1 for me)

      Basestation : Error
      Network :OFF

      You didn't put correct IP of FR box when you signed in to FR software!

      But I repeat...NO NEED FOR SOFTWARE!

        As mentioned before, you don't need any software. Connect all cables and everything should work completely automatically.
        Please contact for all questions regarding your box.
        You can also find a lot of information in the PDF that has been sent to you during the application process.

            i've just read the pdf and all connections are done...
            i 'd like to hope it works without no problems.
            my question is:

            why i cannot receive anything from it?

            maybe i need to open some ports on my router ?

              no need to open ports
              You will see your radar coverage on FR24 radar view when you login in premium acc
              You can use Virtal Radar Server to see your radar on your PC without login in premium
              Don't forget that feeding to other sites is not allowed with FR24 box

                  forget aplication
                  go to premium radar view then settings.....
                  in your router find ip adress of FRbox
                  Change localhost to IP that you found
                  you will see red planes in "Radar View", that's your radar
