    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.
    Can you suggest a specialised 1090 MHz antenna to work with my DVB-T USB stick to improve the signal strength? Can I buy the Flightradar24 box? Thanks!!

    Hi there Mr Kwok,

    Welcome to FR24 and it appears that you have just ventured into ADS-B tracking. May I suggest you have a look at a few forums like this http://radarspotting.com/forum/index.php?action=forum
    about ADS-B tracking and also this FR24 forum, including the hardware session so you can learn what it is all about. These forums will also include antennas, which will be either you buy one or you make one yourself.

    Do make sure you have the right connector to your DVB-T USB stick, which should be a MCX female connector but do check as it might differ.

    As for the FR24box, it is available for EU only and at present we only know the price. It is still not available for sell yet. see http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...rice-yet/page2

    Others might give different advice.

    I hope you find this a bit helpful and good luck and enjoy your venture into ADS-B tracking.

    The DVB-T USB stick and the antenna are supplied by FR24 and I think the connector is the correct one. BTW, what is "EU"?

    EU- European Union.

    What i meant at my post is if you buy an antenna and cable, make sure it does fit to your DVB-T stick as they might come in different type of connectors.

    F-VMMC1 at Macau now giving coverage to the West and some of the South, together with T-VHHH3 and T-VHHH4. let's hope we can have a good view towards the south in the near future.

    Hello Flightradar24 Zhuhai viewers.
    I am happy to donate my good as new AirNav radarbox receiver to somebody in the Zhuhai area of China if they connect it to the Flightradar24 website to enhance Hong Kong radar coverage?
    Thanks

    From that location unsure if we need it to improve HK coverage.
    My radar actually covers all of HK Airport and 200 km north as I overlook the actual airport. I see planes taking off and landing all day/night from from unit.

    Hong Kong coverage is very good but planes do time out for a short time when they come up from the south before turning right onto finals.
    It is this spot where a additional receiver in Zhuhai may be useful?

    Donate it to someone in Haikou, Hainan Island.

    There is a blank coverage after Macau to Vietnam.
