Advice needed
« on: June 11, 2020, 03:04:28 PM »
Hi everyone, i am running a Micro Radarbox and the aircraft are showing up in My Flights, but are not showing on the map. I know at the moment there are not many flights around, however when they do come across they do not show on the map & they have never shown on the map, i bought the microbox a couple of months ago

Thanks in advance

Paul

When they show on the Myflights grid do they have a globe beside the status

Hi Alan,

Station number is PGANRB113572

I cannot remember if they have a globe next to them

Hu Paul

It is showing as offline apart from a period yesterday when it was online but no data flow.  Also no range showing.

Have a look when you put it on again and see whether they have a globe.  A globe shows that the aircraft concerned are ADSB equipped and will show on the map.  No globe shows that they are not ADSB so will not show on the map

As you are centered on a small area I suggest that you zoom out some and see if you can see anything, the KLM is ADSB as you can see with the globe so should show.  As you are zoomed in so much it may be outside the area you are showing.  Move the grid a bit to the left as well to make the map area bigger until you can see aircraft then you can move it back to where you like

KLM601 came up over just south of Bishop Auckland and over Stanhope and Allendale so should have been on your map at some stage, I don't know where it was at the time of the shot though.

As you can see from the attached shot you have no range, where do you have the antenna sited, does it have a good clear view of the sky.  I don't know your knowledge or your set up but do you have the antenna on a ground plane as this is needed.  An easy ground plane is a tin can or biscuit tin lid that the antenna can attach to through its magnetic bottom, try sitting the this on your window sill

Morning Paul, if you go, File Preference Legends Grid you can disable some of the headines to give you more room. ( Tracked / Status / Mode S / etc ). Also  in the Radarbox section untick 2x photos.
All the best, Dave.
