    FR24 radar

    Hi all,

    I'm feeding FR24 with my raspb + sdr dongle + Flightaware antenna. I get a range of ~400km with my system.

    However FR24 website don't show my radar (T-LP***) on any plane nearby. Is it normal?


    Thank you.

    Yes

    You can't use the website alias to find who is really attributing to it.

    It is a database table, and the single field cannot account for the change every 2 seconds of the many receivers sending data

    On a similar theme does the database/website server receive information about the signal strength (or RSSI) of each transmission from dump1090 and does this assist in determining which receiver is currently used to track a particular flight?

    It's determined based on which receiver has uploaded the latest data.
