    tnx fo answer
    What is 6th? As I can see UKKK2, UKKK4, UKBB1 works fine and near 24/7. So UKKK1, UKKK3 is down. 6th radar is UKKK5?
    No any improvment in this area in plans? Or have you "instruments" to bring back to service UKKK1 and UKKK3 ?

This is a radarcape device (MLAT capable) with antenna located ~250 ft AGL (~ 290-300 ft MSL). Antenna site allows un-obstructed 360-degree view of the sky.

    Thanks to zahidulhasan (T-VGHS1) for helping out with antenna installation.
    Hello and welcome to FR24. Set up looks very good and definitely at a very high location. Nice to hear that Zahidulhasan helped, he was working hard on getting coverage for Dhaka. Good job to both of you!

    Excellent news! When F-KBPT1 was around for a few weeks it filled in a bit of MLAT. Nice to see a KBPT site back!

    Hello,
    I'm a new feeder (T-KLMB3), activated a week or so ago.

    I'm using an R820T dongle and simple home-made ground-plane antenna connected to an RPi running Tomasz Miklas' image for FR24:
    http://www.ctrl-alt-del.cc/2013/10/v...d-rtl-sdr.html

    The antenna is currently mounted on the Northeast corner of my house, about 15 ft above the ground. I plan to build a higher gain antenna and mount it higher, above the roof line. But even with this crude antenna below the roofline, my current setup works surprisingly well in all major directions, out to about 150 miles max. I have received signals as far South as West Palm Beach, North from St. Augustine and West out into the Gulf of Mexico. I'm about 7 miles from the KMLB runway (northeast of me), so can receive some signals from aircraft on the ground.

    However, I'm not seeing my feed being used much by FR24, except for a few times the first few days. Another feeder, F-KMLB1, seems to dominate in this area.

    Perhaps part of the problem is clock synchronization. I ran the RPi image for a few days before I realized it was synced to British Standard Time. I reconfigured the locale to EDST (-5 GMT) but am still noting the stats published by FR24 are showing a bogus time for the latest-upload stat. For example, at 1054 localtime I was sending messages like these:
    MSG,7,111,11111,A9125F,111111,2014/07/14,10:54:35.727,2014/07/14,10:54:35.731,,38000,,,,,,,,,,0 MSG,8,111,11111,A7DAC4,111111,2014/07/14,10:54:35.729,2014/07/14,10:54:35.732,,,,,,,,,,,,0 MSG,8,111,11111,C07876,111111,2014/07/14,10:54:35.754,2014/07/14,10:54:35.737,,,,,,,,,,,,0

    But my latest-upload stat showed this impossible time, several hours in the future:
    Radar: T-KMLB3 Status: Online Last upload (~5min): 2014-07-14 15:58:46

    So perhaps I should have reset something in my profile when I changed the locale.

    Why is FR24 showing this spurious timestamp? Can this be fixed?

    Thanks,
    John/af4ex

    First of all welcome to the club and any feed is always appreciated. The code shown is more of a last radar touched the data point type thing. Your data is still being used do not worry. The times are in GMT I believe so as long as you show everything as uploading and such on your side and no errors on your logs then everything is okay. If you want to see what you are uploading I would recommend using one of the various methods to see your own tracked plans such as the radar view to the raspberry pi IP, the raspberry IP webpage, or something like Virtual Radar Server on a Windows PC reading the output from the Pi.

    This post might answer the question as well: http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...ll=1#post52375

    Currently it is 1352 EDST here in Florida, or 1752 UTC. But my account status shows last-upload today at "19:52:04", two hours ahead of UTC. What time zone is that?

    Mine shows: Radar: F-KBTR1 Status: Online Last upload (~5min): 2014-07-14 20:00:44

    Which is 8 minutes behind yours which would go with the posting delays and such. I don't think there's anything wrong with your timestamp. You should start seeing the stats for your feeder uploading on your premium page. This will tell you if your data is being accepted. If you still have any doubts, I would send their support email a message asking them to look at your radar code to verify everything looks fine.

    I'm pretty sure everything is good to go though. Give it 24 hours and check your stats, then try building that bigger antenna to feed the addiction of picking up more.

    CET = Central European Time "server" time.

    T-KMLB3 appears to be feeding data OK.

    OK, just realized that FR24 out of Europe. Now it makes sense. Thanks.

    One more question. Is there any way from your stats (or 3rd party tools) to compute the maximum extents of distance coverage from my feeder inputs? Or a plotting tool that aggregates inputs over a time period on a map?

    I suppose I could write my own program to do this, but figured maybe somebody else has already done this.

    Thanks,
    John/af4ex
