Title: Unusual RadarBox Network Locations
Post by: RodBearden on May 27, 2009, 08:32:24 PM
I'm going to have another stab at this - last time this idea got hijacked by people (including me) who wanted to get on the users map.

I want this thread to be a heads-up for unusual locations of RadarBox reports on the network so that people using the network can be alerted to whizz over to have a look. Users taking their RadarBoxes on trips can also tell us to look out for reports from unusual places that they will be visiting.

We don't really need to know about another box near Heathrow (or if you keep your RadarBox in an old fish tank), but if there are reports coming from Hawaii, Nepal or Kenya, this would be the thread to report it, live, so that we can alll have a look.

I'll start the ball rolling by pointing out that we're currently getting reports from Istanbul - we've seen them occasionally before, but very rarely.

Anyone else think this is a good idea?

Rod

EDIT Darn it - I took so long writing this, that Istanbul has switched off and gone to bed. :-(

I'm just up the road from Heathrow - Ooops, sorry Rod, couldn't resist :-)

I agree that it would be good to hear the more unusual RadarBox locations.

Hi Guys.  From June 10th I will be in DFW then travelling down to Gulf Shores Alabama, (for a two week holiday) provided I can get an internet connection I will be networking. Hope to get some interesting stuff in the Deep South.

Tommy - looking forward to seeing your network input - have a good holiday!

Sterigia - we've been seeing your input recently - it's interesting stuff, and it probably is what you would expect.

Our Malta correspondent has pretty good coverage of Luqa - yes, it's a shame he's not online more often. The north African coast is getting better coverage these days, and we've been getting good returns from Tel Aviv, too. It seems to be more than our Cyprus user would be able to see. I wonder if there's actually an RB user in Israel.

A few months ago I pondered about a box in Colombia, and then one turned up (not as often as we would like). Perhaps if I put in a request for a user to appear in northern Egypt, someone will oblige!

We've actually got two guys who network pretty much 24/7 in Brazil - Juangelb in the Sao Paulo area, which seems to always be busy, and another guy at Fortaleza in the north who gets a fair bit of transatlantic traffic.

I seem to recall that we occasionally get returns from the Rio area as well - may be a resident or a visitor - who knows?

The RAF have been using Globlespan to send troops from RAF Brize Norton via Ascension Island to the Falklands.  so will their planes show up or do they have to switch off their transponers when carrying out work for the mod?

I know Globlespan advertised my dream Job 1 month on and and 1 month off based on Ascension Island I could have been asked to rate cabin & pilot's  and may have had to travel to the Falkands

But the job offered had closed by the time I read it just my luck

Post by: RodBearden on June 15, 2009, 05:22:16 PM
We did have a report that a Globespan plane had been spotted on the network actually at Ascension Island, but as far as I know, that was a one-off. Either the RB user was just passing through, or whether FlyGlobespan normally do switch off position reporting when not in civvy skies, I really don't know.

The Ascension/Falklands flights (GSM8510/8511 & RRR3321) are usually operated by GSM B763 G-CEFG.  It has come up on the network on at least half a dozen occasions from the South Atlantic.

AFAIK, it broadcasts ADS-B all the way, in fact I don't think there is any provision for switching it off other than pulling the CBs on the transponder (which would then disable TCAS) or turning off the GPS (also not a good idea).

I have a mate who is departing to southern places in the next couple of weeks. I have been trying to convince him of the vrtues of this great piece of kit, and I am sure with a little push he may jump and buy.

Now just to convince him that he needs to take it down south, when he has bought it.

Not sure what networking facilities are down at MPA these days though?

Hi Mark

The PAL a/c are equipped and did show up nicely.  The returns you saw were from the second hotel I stayed in, which had thick glass and which the signals from the PAL aircraft seemed to have some difficulty penetrating.  Currently in Singapore and suffering the same fate, plenty of returns but no positional info.

I'll be putting in updates via GAS website.

If you'd like any more info re Manila, hotels etc feel free to e-mail me, (details in members list).

Just saw the note of the long absence in AKL.  It was a holiday (with the Radarbox of course) to Europe.  Needless to say it got a good workout there!!  It is now back in Auckland for its less stressful existence with a new external antenna to boot.  This has increased the coverage considerably.  The record distance is 233.2NM/432km.  Cheers from Auckland.

I'm glad your problems are over now. I know that your area is quiet as regards aircraft showing on the network, but at least you get the Volaris A320's flying over. And I assume it is your RadarBox that shows the aircraft around Cancun.

Aloha from Honolulu! I assume it must be me transmitting from 21N/158W!

Fortunate to be on 2 weeks vacation in a hotel on Waikiki beach overlooking the ocean, and by the way, a pretty decent view of the airport about 5 miles away. Can also see USCG Hercs in/out of Barber's Point. Will keep sending on those occasions when we are in the room doing nothing (not very often) - not happy to leave the system on and running when we are not here.

Thanks for all your work over the last year or more on outlines - the one for PHNL is spot on!

Glad to be of service, Roger.

We're grateful for whatever returns you can send us!

Enjoy your holiday!

EDIT

That was scary - just watched two aircraft land simultaneously on intersecting runways at PHNL - it didn't help that the A330 showed an accurate position, but the B767 obviously only has INS, and appeared to be landing on top of the Airbus. I worked up quite a sweat!

Time for a red wine :-)

Rod,

If you want scary, you should see them do it for real!

Even better is when they use the two parallel NE-SW runways simultaneously, one for take offs and one for landings - in opposite directions!!! (To be fair, they let one land before clearing the next departure).

I have to say, I'm even more gob-smacked by the ANRB system to think that you on the opposite side of the world are watching what I'm watching.

One of Angola's new private carriers has acquired AirNav Systems Professional ADS-B solutions for automatic fleet monitoring.

So we can confirm that Luanda will be online from 9 AM to 5 PM every weekday.
Starting December Luanda sharing will be H24.

Ah - that must be the one that I saw the returns from before.

We must remember that the AirNav map is notoriously inaccurate, but when it confirms what we already suspect, it's possibly correct!

Now, if we could just get a RadarBox in Serbia to fill that gap...

Hi Ian

Also durim almost one year (march 2008 - march 2009) I left a RB + Ubox in Buenos Aires... and accessed it remotely from Sao Paulo...
But due to the world´s worst broadband service from Telefonica there...
as it was almost always down... I brought RB back again to Sao Paulo.

I intend to take RB to Buenos Aires in march month... for vacations... but do not worth to let it there due to very few flights and very poor internet connection.

Best regards and happy 2010

That would be me! I'm about 30 miles SW of Calgary in the Rocky Mountain foothills and received my RadarBox just last week. All I have right now is the antenna that comes with the box, sitting in my windowsill with a SW view. There's a significant amount of domestic and international flights that cross directly over my house, and I am seeing about 75nm to the south and west. Eventually, I plan to pick up a DPD antenna and put it on my roof - with luck, I should see in all directions a much greater distance then.

I originally planned to put a radarbox online in Nairobi. Change of location.

I'm in Hanoi now, VVNB. I've only been online briefly, as my house isn't ideal for a permanent installation, nearby building are obstructing reception. Yet from the 20th floor of one of these obstructions I got a perfectly clear reception all the way down to the runway, so maybe I've found my antenna mast. When I have more time I'll try to convince someone to let me set up an antenna and an ultralight laptop somewhere on a rooftop, get a weatherproof case for the laptop and radarbox, and go online with a 3g usb modem. This might take some time though, I'll also need to get a weatherproof aerial and a short cable lead shipped first. In the meantime, I wont be online much (feel free to send me a message if there's anything specific you'd like me to track though).

I am in the D.C. area now. There seems to be decent coverage here. When I'm back in the Detroit area its possible that I could be the first Radarbox there or at least among the very few. I get to London quite a bit and would buy Radio User magazine. That is where I discovered the Radarbox.

Hi Rod

I am currently feeding intermittently from Bintan (near Singapore) whilst on holiday.
However I am getting many more aircraft tracking on Plane Plotter than on Air Nav.
The PP feed is from my Air Nav so not sure why this is happening.  I have noticed before that Ainav takes longer to start tracking aircraft than my Basestation does and it loses them more quickly as well.  Have not noticed this before with PP, but those who have PP will see a better feed from me than on Air Nav.

I would agree, there doesn't seem to be any logical reason.  The only possibility that springs to mind it that perhaps Singapore being very close to the Equator might have something to do with it ?

I've currently got nearly 1500 aircraft showing on the network, but none at all on or near the Equator.  Of course that may simply be a result of there not being any sharers in northern Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Kenya, Indonesia, etc, but on the other hand it might be worth investigating.

If the cursor has turned black, one workround might be to change the map colours to white!

Yes - we used to get regular returns from Beijing, and the Shanghai area used to be good too, along with mainland China near Hong Kong. At the time, AirNav said that sales in China were going well, but it's all gone very quiet recently.

Let's hope this is the start of a reappearance of China in RadarBox - they've certainly got enough ADS-B aircraft to keep us happy. I hope the RadarBox users aren't being blocked by the Great Firewall of China!

Hi Graham and welcome to the forum.

Assuming you're getting any returns at all from the network, there's probably nothing that you're doing wrong - we just don't often get good returns from Florida. We used to get good info from the Orlando area, and often from around Tampa - occasionally very good returns from Miami.

But it all seems a bit patchy round there these days.

Your reply was so obvious!

If you can afford a condo in Bangkok, you can afford a radarbox.

Post by: typist on September 08, 2010, 11:22:19 AM
well I have one. just not in bangkok. spending a lot of money on further radarboxes is not my priority at the moment. after all a condo is probably a better financial investment than a radarbox...

I too have a Condo in Thailand, which I use when I get out to Thailand, my Condo is on the 5th floor of 18 and is 90km South of Suvarnabhumi Airport [BKK] but unfortunately has a big hill just to north of me so masking a lot of BKK area, also if I could put up a aerial on the roof, 50m of good coax would be expensive and lossy.

I have been thinking that a Ethernet version of the RadarBox could be very useful as it could be left unattended without needing a PC attached, also could be mounted in weather proof box on the aerial mast saving on the expense/loss of coax feeder and computer interference, one thing to bare in mind is that many tall buildings are used commercially as transmitter platforms and you could suffer from heavy interference, may need some big bandpass filtering.
Title: Re: Unusual RadarBox Network Locations
Post by: typist on September 18, 2010, 09:03:03 PM
yep. covering bangkok would be tempting, wouldnt it. as for ethernet vs coax - ethernet is cheaper and better, if you have radarbox in a weatherproof box. you can use something like this piece of hardware

http://www.google.com/products?client=safari&rls=en&q=winstar+m4&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wf

Hi Guys;
Im a newbie here with my Airnav as a Xmas present although I have owned an SBS for a number of years but that is a permanent fixture in my loft and does not travel. However, the Airnav was acquired for the sole purpose of taking it with me on my travels as I am a loadmaster and regularly get to rather obscure places in Africa, Asia etc. So, as internet conx is now a mandatory requirement with my company when in hotels, I will attempt to upload the Airnav whenever I am able! regards clive.

Great news, Clive - do keep us posted as to your locations - it will be great if you could update this thread as you start a session.

It's interesting to know who WAS where, but we can't spend all our time scanning the world map - so an early heads-up will help us notice your returns from unusual places. Good airport views much appreciated :-)

And happy new year!

PS It will also be a DHLight TNT see whether we can guess your airline from all your UPS and downs.

I could MegaArk you FedExpressly, but I won't be Ruslan into such CargLuxury.

Don't worry - I'll stick to logos in future.

If you are able to provide logs and tie-ups from those unusual places to us in the Updaters team as well.  It would be very useful especially considering some of the locations you get to are not accessible to the average man.

PS I have had your Flickr photostream on my favourites, and have been watching it the last 4 months or so.  Found it when searching for an airline operator for a rare IL-76 I was updating and am now hooked by your travels.

Yes we are picking your returns up well. I saw a lot of activity around Cancun earlier, including some ground returns.

It's quiet at the moment, though.

Thanks for sharing!

Rod,

Someone is on in Moscow today. Seeing activity at both UUEE and UUDD. Used the 4 letter codes as to complicated to spell.

Cheers,

I know this quote was two years ago, but that was my box. Only started on Forum two days ago.

Normally DXB based but travel a bit e.g. Moscow, Kiev, Bucharest, Sofia and Jeddah so you might also have picked up some of these over the last three and half years.

Early this year due to new computer with windows 7 I have had hardware/network jamming issues and had to minimise use of network but Runway 31 seems to have helped me overcome this issue so will be on network when and where internet permits.

Is it my imagination, or is there a new box somewhere in central Turkey, around LTAH?

There seems to be a concentration of returns which I haven't noticed before. I know our Antalya user has been getting good returns for a while now, but this seems more than we've had before.

Just my short vacation, Rod. Moscow is back again in 24/7 mode.

I have an issue with my new computer, that when I am on Network my hardware freezes after a short time and I lose all info so when in Moscow and Kiev during August I rarely used Network. Any ideas why this happens? I was advised to move all my ANRB stuff direct to the hard drive and avoid program files but that has not cured the problem.

Hi Alan

I already have it on C Drive avoiding Program files as ARNB tech (or you) suggested, but I still have a problem when using network as it freezes my hardware and I lose all info and downloads. This week alone I have lost two nights info and updates.

I now go on Network twice per day, download and exit, shut computer down then reboot to avoid problems.

These returns from the Black Sea are a little bit of a mystery.

to tarbat: On your card my radar is represented correctly, and according to the reference AirNav the radar is in the next Yaroslavl region that isn't correct. In Yaroslavl there is no radar.
Probably AirNav were mistaken and specified my radar aside? I ask to correct and grade in the city of Ivanovo.

Airnav's map normally uses the location of your IP address, whch can be many hundreds of miles away.  My map uses the actual location (CITY/COUNTRY) that you enter into the station location details in Preferences.

It would be really nice to have ground returns from more busy airports like New York, SFO, etc, and surely there must be someone in Iceland who wants a free RadarBox!

Not forgetting Athens and Rome airport movements, too.

Post by: typist on October 26, 2012, 10:08:26 AM
I originally intended to set up my radarbox permanently in Hanoi...but due to various factors (the need for a monster mast, highrise buildings nearby, building regulations, radio interference, the incredible cost of shipping a proper antenna to Vietnam and the hassle of dealing with customs etc) I put the project on ice.

Now I just opened an office in Saigon (or Ho Chi Minh City for those who still like the idea of naming cities after people), perfectly located 3nm from VVTS.

The standard glideslope for rw 07L passes right next to my office window - at around 1000ft altitude on approach the aircraft are 0.4 nm away from my antenna, meaning that even with the standard antenna inside my window sill I already now get good returns from that direction :)

I've just signed a long-term lease for the office here, and in due course I'll set up a proper antenna mast on the rooftop which should clear most obstructions and give near 360 deg coverage, and invest in a slightly higher-gain, probably sealed (fiberglass) "permanent outdoor" type antenna.

I'm running airnav on my laptop for now (and need to take it with me sometimes), but as soon as I get a permanent antenna/mast, I'll use a dedicated box so that it will be online 24/7.

Looking forwrds to seeing your returns typist

Alan
Title: Re: Unusual RadarBox Network Locations
Post by: typist on October 26, 2012, 12:15:59 PM
the returns should be there already, just with a limited radius (max 50nm in "lucky" directions for FL 30-40, but good coverage of final approach/landing on RW07 already), but as soon as I get a mast and a proper antenna setup I should get pretty much 360 degrees visibility. I wanted to do this 2 years ago in HN already, but it really isn't worth it when the location is sub-optimal, but now I found a perfect spot methinks :)
