    Exclamation Help us increase coverage!

    Are you interested in helping us increase Flightradar24’s ADS-B coverage around the world? We are looking for suitable hosts for a large number of ADS-B receivers and antennas.

    To make sure we get the most out of each ADS-B receiver we send out, we do have some requirements:
    • You are able to offer excellent reception conditions – i.e. the antenna will be placed outside on a roof, mast or similar and have 360 degree unobstructed view of the sky
    • You are able to keep the receiver online 24/7 feeding our servers via an uninterrupted internet connection
    • If things for some reason doesn’t work out – you are OK with sending the equipment back (at Flightradar24’s expense) at our request

    If this sounds interesting to you, please apply here

    The ADS-B receiver that we are sending out is a special Flightradar24 branded unit developed by makers of the Mode-S Beast. The Flightradar24 Box is compact (measuring just 100x60x30mm). It connects directly to your router/modem by Ethernet cable. It doesn't need a PC to run and we supply an external Mode-S antenna, all cables including a GPS antenna for data timing precision.



    If you already own ADS-B receiver, it’s very easy to feed data to Flightradar24: http://www.flightradar24.com/software

    Everybody that feeds data to Flightradar24 gets our apps for free as well as exclusive website features: http://www.flightradar24.com/premium/

    During the first hour, we have received 70 applications. Most applications came from Brazil (about 20). We will contact everyone who applied to get more information! Thanks to everyone who applied!

    Hello

    How is the coverage in the Isle of Man?

    I live in the Douglas area, just about in the middle.

    I am just in the suburbs of Colombo city, I can mount on a high location but you cannot see 360 degrees right down to the horizon. Are you interested in such a location (6.919588, 79.979395). Thank you. Thiagan

    Cool! What type of reciver hardware is this?

    Just saying.. Oslo will get more coverage very soon! Antenna is mounted on top of house 6 km south of the airport with good visibility in all directions. You can slightly see parts of the runway from the house. Stream should be up and running stable within a cuouple of weeks. It's actually "beta-"sharing as we speak, but the antenna cable is broken, so the "antenna" at the moment is just a short wire laing on the floor indoor. Still getting some ground traffic, so I think the result will be very good once we get the antenna on the roof connected. Receiver is a Mode-S Beast MKII

    It's a receiver built specially for FR24 and not yet available on the market. It's based on the Beast receiver together with a BeagleBone computer and GPS (for MLAT time synchronization).

    Ok! So you are planning to support MLAT too?
