    Yes Mike hasn't been around on forum for sometime now, and not sure whether Piopawlu will make any comments/thoughts as well so I think we won't get any updates any soon... guess they are still busy updating the remaining receivers - and that's quite a number of them around the globe.

    Previous version was: 20141022-0934

    As of today... new Firmware is: 20150220-1537

    The logs also show the radio is now not only using GPS for a time sync, but also using an NTP server, and is doing some very fine time adjustments. I'm guessing this is to improve MLAT resolution ?

    Maybe someone on staff can let us know what new features the new firmware will bring?

    Thanks
    How did you figure out your firmware version ? How you access the receiver for the firmware version ?

    I noticed for the past 4 days, my receiver had slots of non-feeding to the network.

    Just wondering what was going on.

    I doubt your GPS antenna location has any issue. At one point I had it pointing at the horizon under an eave and it was locking 8 or so satellites which is more than plenty.

    From what I've been told by FR24, this new firmware release fixes the bug with ground vehicles being received by the F- receivers, so hopefully, we'll see more ground vehicle coverage as this new firmware rolls out.

    No ground vehicles with F- here, with my T- they do appear. (Amsterdam Schiphol)
    Maybe they meant aircraft being on the ground?
