      When shipping the item will they ask to send whole device and coax and Antenna or only the damage ADS-B
      Just tell them if you are having trouble With your FR24 receiver

        Can you take a photo of your tower?

          Troubleshooting an Inaccessible FR24 Receiver

          There are some troubleshooting steps you can take in the meantime to isolate the problem.

          When you cycle the power switch look at the modem and see if the port led is on and blinking. Also access the receiver status page.

          1. If the modem is receiving negotiations from the receiver, the modem led will be steady or blinking green. If the led is off, there is a power problem at the receiver.

          2. Access the receiver status page and look at the GPS INFO: If you don't see this section listed reload the page.

          Normal entries will look like this: GPS INFO:

          POSITION: 9.3437,123.2960 81.6m [AMSL]
          TEMPERATURE: 52.12'C

          If you see something similar, the GPS is working normally. The GPS module is not watertight but if you installed it with the coax coming out the bottom you should be ok.

          If the power to the tower is switched by a household type wall switch they have been known to be flakey. The light in my daughters room will only come on when I press the switch in a certain way.

          If you don't use a switch but a plug you pull out of a receptacle to cycle the power, it has been my experience over the years that plug connections to the wire are the points of most power failures especially if you use SJ cord. A bad connection will heat up and deform the plastic. Failure is most times intermittent in the early stages.

          Water in a coax connector will not cause the receiver to turn off but will just cause the receiver to track few or no planes and the receiver range will be degraded.

          When you are able to access the receiver on the tower remove the cover and look for a water pool in the bottom of the enclosure and check the mini-usb connection from the 5 volt power adapter and if the receiver has been on the power adapter will feel warm. Smell inside for the metallic smell of an overheated component or wire. Carry a power tool up the tower with you to plug in to the receptacle and operate for a few minutes to stress the connections.

          If you suspect the antenna remove the N connector and slap it against your open palm. If you see droplets of water the tape seal failed. Ordinarily a few drops might not seem like a lot but the aluminum braid on the coax when exposed to moisture will oxidize and eventually cause the electrical properties of the braid to fail. The coax supplied has aluminum braid. The addition of silicone grease in the void between the female nut on the N connector and the center conductor will fill the voids when tightened and displace any water caused by tape wrapping failures. Fat fingers are not good for wrapping connectors.

          Kailrusha I hope you can get some ideas from this long post.

              I just check my ADS-B the. RJ45 Got Loose. I change the connector and it runs fine now. But sadly Our Local IPDSLAM Runs on battery for 18 hours only so I dont have internet now.

                  Sunday 4:32 pm Typhoon Ruby Update..Feeder at Risk

                  The center rotation of weakened remnants of Typhoon "Ruby" is moving faster toward Manila Bay. The location at 4:32 is here leaving a swath of destruction in Samar, Albay and Masbate. Even as far away as Sabah the tail of "Ruby" is causing havoc

                  Now the storm surge may cause the worst damage depending if the surge arrives at high tide.

                  From the looks of the video on Albay Province, Legazpi City, F-RPLP1 is probably safe but just without power right now.

                          MLAT Opportunities for the Coming Week

                          I expect TS "Ruby" to cease its movement to the northwest since it is butting up to the cold China high pressure area that is moving south. "Ruby" will weaken further and be caught in the northeast monsoon resulting in a low pressure area with no place to go defined as a cut-off low. Being caught in the northeast monsoon airflow, it will meander back across Luzon as a rain event before continuing into the Pacific to die. Maybe a rare snow in Baguio this year.

                          By Tuesday, Philippine Air Force C130s from Clark and Villamor Air Base (NAIA) and possibility Cebu will be delivering relief supplies to Samar, Albay and Masbate provinces. C130s and freighters from other countries will be detectable on your FR24 receivers if MLAT is working. With the return of F-RPLP1 the welcome addition of F-RPLL3, collaboration with F-RPVII1 and F-RPV01 over the calamity areas is assured. If the runways are insufficient for heavy aircraft, it's probable that Cebu will be the distribution point using ferries and turbo-props furnished by PAL Express and Cebu Pacific.

                          Hopefully by the end of the week things will return to normal.

                              How are you doing over there in Singapore in the new MLAT era. Is that station of yours still making it across the big water to the land of smoke?

                              Been to long since we caught up last.

                              Hi John,

                              Quite busy lately until I forgot my password to login here.

                              Still receiving across the waters until Natuna Island in the South China Sea ( not West Philippines Sea !).

                              Lately having daily thunderstorms. Intend to raise the antenna by about 1 metre and realign the antenna to give more directional gain into the South.

                              Currently, getting about 265 nm.
