    @viista, I have a reply! For your case it will be that FR24 prefers to send you the kit minus antenna and cable, and you have to get a splitter of your choice which FR24 would reimburse you after you submit the receipt. One thing to note from me however is that there is some db lost (i forgot how many) so you might notice your range decrease when using a splitter. But you can experiment I guess.

    I agree. Thanks North Borneo!

    @viista: Make a normal application on the webpage (if you havent already?) and post the application id here. I will then look at it and we can send you a kit without the parts you don't need. As North Borneo says you can then order the part you need and we will reimburse you throw Paypal.

    Hi NBR. Thanks for the help. Currently I have difficulties on obtaining a right splitter for ADS-B application. Limited accessibility especially in Malaysia. I would prefer FR24 to provide one, if possible.

    Saw a GIA plane, which is showing weird information today. Check out the picture.

    PK-GAF.jpg

    It seems that the same hex is being used for 2 completely different type of planes. I thought it might be a transponder shift from an older plane, but it seems it isn't. The plane in the pic would be a B737 @FL360 but from FR24 database/history, there's another plane with the same hex, which should be an AT76, and is still in operation...

    I thought every aircraft transponders have their own unique hex? Or not? It should be.

    Edit: This doesn't seems to be FR24's problem, as I just read that the hex can be inputted pre-flight(?).

    Thanks for reporting F-EGLF1. He was using very bad tactics to get 5 posts to post a url link to stir. He's now back to 1

The current antenna and receiver is doing its job feeding to a few places. If I were to apply for another receiver, I wonder whether FR24 can supply me with some kind of coax splitter instead of another set of coaxial cable and antenna. That is the only concern that I have.

    @viista, did you see our replies? Hope you seen them and have a think what to do then. I am sure your location will contribute to MLAT and redundancy for FR24.

    @edward93, yes this has been noticed by me for quite sometime, perhaps almost for a year. No idea why. Though I am only a lay person and have not much knowledge about aviation safety/standards, it shows that Indonesia's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (the equivalent to our Department of Civil Aviation) still has a lot to do, especially meeting ICAO standards. 2 planes having the same hex isn't right, well for me anyway.

    I didn't know the error had been there for a year already.... Perhaps someone in Radar Indonesia subforum could help inform GIA about it? My uneducated guess would be that the maintenance crew may have inputted incorrect hex into the transponder after a scheduled maintenance.. I could be wrong though..

    T-WMKB1 @ Butterworth also has quite decent range. Please apply for a FR24box!

    Thanks North Borneo Radar . I try once but no reply

    Somehow I missed your post viista. Not sure what's the matter with the FR24 forum email notification.

    I think ebay is the way to find an ads-b splitter. mini circuits ZAPD 2 used can be around 150myr to get. I assume your connectors are SMA.

    Example: http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/Mini-Circ...AAAOSwsB9WEfZ4

    Sorry it took so long to reply to you viista I don't check forum often these days and rely on email notification. Let me know if you need help.


    On another matter, our kawan T-WMKB1 at Butterworth sure does get very good range.

    F-WMKC1, how is your setup? Everything ok? Don't seems to spot it that often but there is a lot of feeders around WMKC.
