    Many thanks Khan,

    It appears that the stats are now getting through (Monday). For Raspi users you may find that NSLOOKUP is not there, in which case apply the following command at the Pi prompt "sudo apt-get install dnsutils" and then try "nslookup feed.flightradar24.com" again. Hopefully it will return an IP4 address response such as

    Name: feed.flightradar24.com.cdn.clouldflare.net
    Address: 104.20.1.101

    Note: feed.flightradar24.com should not be confused with feed.flightradar.com which returns a different address such as 69.172.201.153.

    My unit isn't working by the look of things. I've sent you an email.

    Are you trying to say that you ditched IPv4 completely and went IPv6 only!? That would be really JohnnyBravo style! You must not need Internet beyond Google, Facebook and very few others!

    What JohnnyBravo would tell is that in Germany/Europe most ISP switch to IPv6 with an IPv4 stack. That dont make it easy to "just switch" to IPv4 at any time.
    For me it was a phonecall to my ISP to ask for an real IPv4 adress, 10 minutes later it runs without extra cost´s.

    Actually the problem is most likely that the fr24feed program is only resolving the server address at startup. So once it has acquired an ipv6 address it'll hold onto that forever.

    What the program should do is periodically re-resolve feed.flightradar24.com and re-connect if the address has changed (or been dropped). That way if they have another catastrophic routing issue they can drop the AAAA address out of the DNS and the clients will eventually all auto-switch over to ipv4.

    A restart would have worked as well if flightradar had dropped the AAAA during the problem period, but that doesn't seem to have happened, which is a bit odd. That way at least all those folk attempting a restart would have started working without starting to mess with their systems in an attempt to get them going again.

    How ? Use Superglue ? LOL

    I thought my receiver have problems. I removed the receiver front panel, cleaned the MicroSD contacts and reinstalled. I also climb outside my 25 floor apartment window, stood on top of my air con compressor to check the antenna connections. Still I saw intermittent data feeds.

    There are a couple of ways of seeing if your receiver is the problem or not. The best and easiest is to have a look at the feed log on your receiving computer. At least for Raspberry PIs and other Linuxen, it's as simple as running the shell command:

    tail -F /var/log/fr24feed/fr24feed.log


    and watching the output for a while. If you see things like:

    2018-06-19 10:59:40 | [mlat][i]Received ADS-B time references AC:
    2018-06-19 10:59:40 | [mlat][i] 7C3635
    2018-06-19 10:59:40 | [mlat][i] 7C4779
    ...
    2018-06-19 10:59:40 | [mlat][i] C058C2


    the ADS-B side of your system is functioning normal and there is nothing you can do on that front. Other messages can indicate whether the data is being successfully sent to the servers.

    Can someone explain ..

    On the ip of pi:8754 status screen, I see after Local IP(s) an IPv4 followed by an IPv6 address. I recognise the first as my local LAN - any idea what the second v6 address might be ? Is it the destination address or could it be the WAN address of my internet service ?

    Stats are back working since 1010UTC and as an interesting aside, the RPi 3B's with the light blue dongle were less impacted than the Radarcape or the FA Prostick !!
