      I am no longer receiving any ground traffic myself. I think they have turned down the power of the ADS-B transmitters on Schiphol a lot.

      T-EHAM53 is still active and picking up ground signals at Amsterdam Schiphol Airsport (AMS/EHAM).

        I've been advised by FR24 staff that this will be fixed in the coming weeks - though that was back in January.

        If you have an F- feeder locally, however, you can see the ground traffic if you connect to the receiver's raw feed (assuming you can receive ground traffic).

        The reason why ground vehicles don't show up on F receivers is this, as explained to me by FR24 staff - ground vehicles often send incorrect location data, so FR24 only shows ground signals when they have been seen to take off or land within 5 kilometres of its reported ground position. However, for aircraft that have been on the ground for a long time or for ground vehicles that never take off in the first place, this means they don't show up. FR24 intends to remedy this by revising the ground traffic validation rule thus - if there has been any aircraft landing or taking off close to where the ground vehicle/aeroplane says it is, then it will be shown. And that's why ground traffic (namely ground vehicles) is missing from the F receivers.

        To the mods, if I've revealed too much about FR24's internal workings, please feel free to delete/edit this post.

            All ground signals at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport / Netherlands (AMS/EHAM) are offline again.
            T-EHAM7 is temporary online to confirm this.

            Edit 2015-06-18: T-EHAM53 is back online.

              I see F-EHAM4 showing ground vehicles at Schiphol.
              Finally FR24 receivers doing ground vehicles?

                I see a lot of ground vehicles at ENGM. These are displayed as aircrafts when they should be displayed as ground vehicles (e.g. snowploughs). Can someone look into this?

                  There are probably 1000+ vehicles missing in database. If you are able to identify an a vehicle you can post it in this thread to get it added to database

                    I wonder what the ground vehicles showing a weird star-like pattern are (see below). There's two of them at PRG, saw others here and there.

                      There's another one, at OTP. No idea, anyone?

                        I am a newbie to posting on the forum so I apologize if I get this wrong. I am seeing a ground vehicle HBFWG that acts like an aircraft. The stats are crazy for a ground vehicle and I think I must have some setting incorrect or this just may be an error. Attached is a screen shot. Screenshot (20).jpg

                            Thank you for such a quick reply. I've never seen a ground vehicle with a ground speed of over 300 mph. I was sure it was an error but did not know what I was seeing. Thanks again.
