Unusual RadarBox Network Locations
« 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.

Nothing personal, 'Cator! But you get my drift.

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!

It's very busy around Shanghai at the moment.

Do we have a permanent user round there these days, or is it a pilot making frequent visits?

We have seen a continuous increase in China orders lately so more China locations will appear.

maybe not everybody has a flat internet rate like i have. most of the time i leave it on just for the rest of us even if i don't watch, specially when i'm at work. pity there's no oceanic coverage, i. e. pacific islands, those i listen on hf.
cheers

Someone had one in Brazil once.  I remember this because there was a USAF/FEST C-32B flying around down there.

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?

Sorry RNAGG - I knew you were there, but I'd forgotten your handle!

Keep up the good work!
