    Hello ThisIsHk,

    are you the one with radar code: F-VHHH1? Any chance of knowing when you will be back online to FR24 providing feed for HK if you are indeed F-VHHH1? No feeder at all at HK now

    Thanks for the reply. Ah right that's why. Let's hope you get the replacement soon. Could it be because of static that caused the FR24 receiver to be faulty? Anyway looking forward to having the feed back as HK has such a high volume of a/c. Thanks for doing this.

    Hello ThisIsHk,

    I've got the DVB-T receiver and started to feed data for FR24. However, I found the reception is not good, may I know which device and antenna are you using now? Thanks!!

    I am just using the standard kit provided by FR24..
    I have the antennae placed inside against a high window which has an uninterrupted 180 degree view of Hong Kong airport.

    That is DVB-T USB and the small antenna? And software is using RTL1090 / planeplotter upload data to FR24? Thanks!!

    But why your radar is calling F-VHHH1 not T-VHHH1? Sorry for so many questions coz I really don't know the reason and want to improve the signal in my site. Thanks!!

    I live at Tung Chung and have direct line of sight to the airport with a receiver now in place.. installed about a month ago.

    The issue I have based on my location is traffic south and also to the west ..
    Seems we need a radar in Macau or Zhuhai to cover the black-hole ?

    No, ThisIsHK has our Flightradar24 Box:

    http://www.flightradar24.com/free-ads-b-equipment

    F- denotes feeders using this equipment.

    The DVB-T USB stick, like all receievrs, will benefit from the antenna being located high up with as much "view" of the sky as is possible. Using a specialised 1090 MHz antenna will also improve reception.
