    We run into some technical issues with the receiver on final testing, so we need to solve that first.

    The free receiver is provided and sponsored by FR24 so for obvious reasons you are only allowed to use it for feeding FR24.

    We gave up the idea of selling the box as it just became to complicated with different receiver versions and we don't have resources to give support for a receiver that is not ours and not controlled from our servers. Instead we have made an arrangement with Guenter that he will start selling his receiver shortly. Once his web shop is ready we will post a link both here and on FR24.com

    Thanks for the update Mike. This clarifies a lot for those who are waiting I am sure. Just a question, but how would MLAT work for receivers bought by users themselves? Will it be able to integrate with FR24 or not?

    It is for free and I am sure you can't get everything from something free.

    There's always the options of getting a RPi + Dongle option where u can share to whoever you want then, if you have the free FR24 receiver. Some users here use that as a backup. The choice is yours, it is up to you.

    The idea is of course that they should be able to use for MLAT. But it's a bit complicated but we are working together with Guenter to solve this.
