    Appreciation Thread - Thank You Feeders.

    Thank you to WBGG1 at Kuching, Malaysia. There is a noticeable increase in coverage for the past week with a/c showing up to Sibu and further and also plane route at South China Sea heading to Singapore/Kuala Lumpur from North Borneo/Phillipines . Whatever you have done, thank you. We all do this for free, so I think we should be grateful.

    Thanks again for this.

    Feel free to post your 'thank you' here for other feeders.

    Hope it will be assigned a proper ID asap.

    Waiting for the raining weather to clear to put up the antenna in its proper place.

    Thanks Birdie for your long range feed for Singapore area.

    So your code now is WSSS1 instead of WSSS4?

    F-WSSS1 instead of T-WSSS4

    T- are software feeders
    F- are hardware feeders

    Flightradar24 Receiver (R13a) is now F-WSSS1 which is now ON 24/7.

    My AirNav RadarBox is T-WSSS4 - as and when I am on good mood, I turn it on. Most of the time I am on BAD Mood @ AirNav Systems and the RadarBox is switched OFF - depriving AirNav of their STEALING my flight Data.

    Birdie,

    Just remembered, have you installed your pre-amp? is it the AS-1090 preamp from wimo? any thoughts on whether it improves performance?

    or u are waiting to install it together with the antenna? thanks.

    My current range is about 298 nM using the flimsy antenna.

    Weather is quite bad and raining. I cant risk falling down working on the slippery air conditioner outdoor compressor.

    I will do the Antenna & Wimo Pre-Amp installation together at one go to minimise my risks.

    Meanwhile, I am having fun rubbing AirNav Systems - by posting screen-shots of Flightradar24 & RadarBox24 coverage.

    ( Comment: No Prize for guessing correctly which site is better and which site got ZERO Coverage from WSSS )

    With the FlightRadar24 Receiver - I now Declare : " I am the HAPPIEST & highly motivated to improve coverage Flight Data Feeder in the World ! "

    Alright thanks for the update Birdie!

    Also, good to have T-VTBD1 back online. noticed it was off few days ago. I still couldn't see VTBS1-?4 whilst VTBD1 was offline. Only some planes showed up from T-F4V then. Is that you VTBS?

    Good to have your good coverage back at Bangkok! thanks

    When the Antenna and Masthead Pre-Amp is up in its proper place, I might intrude into WBGG1 coverage areas.

    I dont mind personally! I am sure it is good for FR24!

    Some say a pre don't really extend the range but pick up weaker signals within the range. Will be interesting to see the data collected by your antenna and mast head pre when it's up at the proper place.

    Thanks to radar T-RCKU1 ! now able to see traffic at Fujian, China. Also covering South, South West Part of Taiwan, close to Hong Kong sometimes!

    Also to RCKH1, aircraft can be detected as far south as northern part of Phillipines!

    Good to see coverage across that part of Asia getting better!
