    I glad my application was accepted, Now i just saw Green Mark on Philippines Leyte. I been finding for quite sometime if anybody sends a Free Weather Station but they are expensive need membership. this ADS-B Host will greatly help our Island specially it was hit by Haiyan Last year. My 90 Foot Tower Survived the Onslaught Last Year. as well as other Tower Located in the Hills of Leyte. If Very thing goes well i can track Plane about 200 kilometers Radius base in elevation i have and the plane @ 30K-40K Feet.

    I see at least four or maybe five new hosts coming soon to Ireland. Hopefully this will improve M-LAT coverage to lower altitudes. I'm guessing this is the reason they were approved?

    We haven't been sending so many receivers to Ireland as we were supposed to have 5-6 professional installations on big towers around Ireland. As this has been postponed for at least 6 months, we decided to send out receivers to hosts now.

    People might like a 'Not at this time, Thank you, but will review in x months' type mail, they may be thinking of buying their own feeder if you don't supply one...

    Kailrusha, FREE doesn't necessarily mean FREE. The materials sent will meet the needs of an AVERAGE install in Europe.

    The Average install means the antenna is mounted at the top of a mast 10 meters from the receiver which is supplied line voltage. The GPS sensor is mounted a short distance above the receiver. The altitude reported is just that height above average sea level. If the GPS sensor is desired to reach the top of the mast splicing a piece of RG59 AT YOUR EXPENSE is necessary, maintaining watertight integrity at the splices and exposed connections. GPS is vital for location, elevation and timing for the receiver.

    Since your installation involves a tower you need a waterproof box to contain the receiver, line voltage power source and cable connections. also since the antenna is setup for mast mounting you will need to rig an offset bracket with some elbows and GI pipe nipples to minimize the tower closing off the backside of the antenna and distorting your coverage area. Look for the electrical box at your local junk shop. Good installation practices like drip loops and UV resistant wire ties will increase your installation reliability.

    The supplied Low Loss coax and the UTP Cat6 ethernet cable are really overspeced since Low Loss capabilities are at double the 1090 mHZ use and are quite average at what we are using it for. Your local computer networking shop can supply you with UTP cable of any length and attach the ends for you inexpensively.

    Here in the Philippines, the DSL terminals have backup power so the internet stays on for up to 8 hours during brownouts scheduled or otherwise.
    In order to keep FR24 online you will need to provide a UPS to power the modem and FR24 receiver unless you have your own generator.

    There are times when you may need the capability to switch off the power to the receiver and turn it back on to reboot the receiver so the line voltage line to the receiver enclosure needs to be switched from a convenient place.

    If FR24 is still using DHL their local courier in the provinces is 2GO. Your local 2GO office can keep a lookout for your receiver using the DHL tracking number. it's not unusual for the shipment to remain in China for a few days until a flight into Clark is available from which it is trucked to Manila and flew to Tacloban eventually to you.

    @ paradiselost

    Thanks for the Advice. I just bought 2 days ago Waterproof Outdoor Enclosure IP67. I have small Wireless Network for my Remote Internet Shop here that has been running almost 3 years know. ill post may photo once i install the Device on my Mast. Im not planning to put this Antenna at the top of the Mast just about 3 feet lower from my Lightning Rod. of course this Omni Antenna needs a Arrester. I have 24hours Backup Power and Generator

    How many days i can expect the ADS-B will arrived? 2GO Tacloban in not available only for light aircraft cause the tarmac is under maintenance for 1 month, that what i saw in the news 3 weeks ago.
