    Australian counterparts.

    I have a beast, and 18-9 feeder. And just noticed something interesting, hope someone can confirm with me

    Tapping into the raw output feed for planeplotter and such, all of a sudden my military aircraft do not show altitude via the feeder raw out, I've confirmed this by tapping direct to serial and can again see it. Clearly others are too as MLAT still works with the RNZAF C130s. But I want to isolate being a server side thing, or 18-9 playing silly buggers (short of downgrading version)

    /edit and as I say that, a few restarts later and its away again. What the...
    For how long is to be seen

    Hi and welcome Netranger.

    I noticed your feed for the first time today whilst watching the skydive C208 descending at Tyagarah.

    I am F-YBNA1. I'm about 1.5km south from Ballina airport, right next to Ballina Fair Shops. My aerial is on my roof, on a 6 metre pole. As you noticed I get quite good coverage to the SE from here, dead flat land between my location and the coast for 40km south of me. When viewing what my feed is picking up on plane plotter, I can see for about 250nm in all directions except to the NW.

    Again welcome to the feed, we should get a lot more lower down from Byron to Tweed now.

    Hi YPTN - Tenant Creek has been offline for quite some time leaving quite a large hole in FR24 coverage. Any contacts in that area who might be interested in hosting a receiver ?

    Regards

    Well done. There are always gaps in the NT coverage.

    For the north east NSW and south east Queensland feeders, I have just activated T-YEVD1 at Evans Head. Not sure if this will remain in position permanently (or maybe move to a better location) but it was installed primarily for the Great Eastern Fly In ( see http://www.greateasternflyin.com ) this weekend for ground and low level aircraft traffic to see whats about - if anything.

    Coverage favours the northern arc from South-west to East.

    Cheers

    Peter

    Wow, this thread slowed down a little!

    Hi NetRanger, welcome to the thread and feeding, hope all is going well.

    T/F-YBBN1 is run by Kemistry, he occasionally pops his head in here, though I've noticed lately that his PiAware feeder seems to have some stability issues?

    After a long absence due to a house move (to a much better locations in the same suburb), I've been able to get my feed going again, it's T-YBBN50.. My next project which will hopefully improve things slightly is to shorten my coax by putting the FA ProStick Plus dongle on a USB extension and upgrade from the old Pi B+ to a Pi3 .. I keep buying Pi3's then either selling as part of other jobs or finding other uses for them before I remember why I bought them

    Anyway Happy New Year etc! I hope all us Aussie feeders + Oblivion are doing well etc. Take care!

    Regards,
    Cameron

    My grumpy "for the love of it look for answers before posting" persona when the feeder pooped itself probably scared them all off like everyone else
