    Question New receiver up and running - how long till it's registered?

    I've installed the FR24 receiver kit that arrived yesterday with the antenna on the roof and the receiver plugged into my router. I have what appears to be a new receiver (v1.1) as the lights are different to what the online equipment instructions show. Power light is steady red, GPS light a steady flashing blue (1 sec on, 1 sec off), Mode S light a random flickering green.

    How long does it take from turning it on to be recognised by FR24 and being contacted? Keen to see the stats but need a login for that I believe.

    They're in Sweden. And need to marry up a few the automatic phone home with manual attachment.

    Just wait. Further questions should go to support email. They don't support their boxes publicly

    That said. It has the same software to feed. So find the IP from your router table and should be able to web browser it on :8754 the same.

    I logged on to the IP and port. Can see a whole lot of diagnostic information. This is concerning though:

    I know this may sound a dumb question (it actually isn't) but is the receiver connected to the Internet?

    Not a dumb question, but yes itís connected to the Internet. FR have confirmed itís up and assigned a radar name and itís sending data, though via my stats itís only got 35% uptime since I turned it on 12 hours ago. Iím assuming uptime is calculated over a certain time period and is not an absolute value?
