    Hi Saidmunawar,

    Have you had any trouble with rain getting into the enclosure via the fan? I'm worried that if I place a fan in my enclosure water will get blown in when the tropical rains hit.

    Do you have some sort of ventilation in the box?
    Do you have a PoE setup or is the electricity going into the box?
    well all that is past. Now my setup looks different and it's on new position.

    But....no ventilation was needed in protective case, and power + LAN went through the chimney (that is not in use)

    Just protect case from direct sunlight with some kind of board or similar.

    Ok many thanks. I will leave that to FR24 to assess. Olov is aware but he is away so I am sure other members of the FR24 team will look into it.

    about location near jambi, belitung and pangkal pinang, I'll try to contact my friends who work in airport, but sometime even they work as techician in airport they dont have interest/hobby to install receiver or maybe they are already busy with their own job.
    Different tracking website has different ways of doing things, for FR24 feeders location is kept private. Only way is if WITT4 drops a message then you could ask for contact.

    As for asking your friends around the area whether they would like to feed, yes of course it depends mostly on them, still thanks to you for the effort to ask them.

    I notice F-WITT4 now uploading data from Acheh.
    with WITT4 now coming online there is 3 receivers there now. Any chance you know who operates WITT4 Mr saidmunawar?

    A negative AMSL.. rare indeed. I only know Amsterdam Schipol Airport EHAM has negative AMSL (-3m). Not sure about Aceh but -8.1m is weird. As per limpost better ask FR24 support though to me it's not that critical to for adsb to have a correct AMSL. The GPS coordinates provides a guide to your max range FR24 receiver to upload - 350nm for airborne traffic and for ground it is 100nm. This is to reduce positional errors. Timing is based on GPS and NTP for timing accurary. I can't think of AMSL's purpose for now apart from us knowing our elevation, it doesn't help in ADS-B.

    Btw Mr Saidmuwar hope you can find some new feeders around Sumatra! One or two from Jambi, Pangkal Pinang and Pulau Belintung would help improve coverage and MLAT5 around Mid-South Sumatra. We have tried but so far no joy.

    I think it's just a rounding error. Receiver plots lat and lon to 4 decimal points, google converts to minutes and seconds.

    I think you FR24 GPS receiver is faulty. Suggest highlight to support.

    Usually F-WITT2 and 3 have same number of tracked AC, I assume it received from same AC.

    The radar code displayed is at random selected by their decoding website. They will use all the information received from both receivers to display the aircraft position.

    One point I notice in your above post. Location of WITT3 is 19.5m (AMSL) Above Mean Sea Level
    WITT2 is showing -8.1m (AMSL) below sea level?
