World Wide ?
« on: August 23, 2009, 02:49:41 PM »
As a newcomer to the RB scene, I am exploring what I have bought.

I am somewhat surprised to see the vast majority of the A/C data passed to my PC is from within Europe. Very little from the US. Why is this ?

Maybe:-
a) There are more aircraft movements in Europe... (Don't believe this having traveled to the US over a dozen times).
b) There are fewer people in the US with RB's... (Surely not as being based in San Diego it is AN's home market ).
c) That only a very small amount of US traffic is put onto AN's server... (I do hope not ) !

I really want my RB to show (via the network) World Wide traffic, not just European.

Hi Stewart.

Firstly the places where RadarBox customers are currentlt sharing at that moment on the network is shown at:

http://www.airnavsystems.com/RadarBox/network2.php

a) Remember if your in the UK there 5hours+ behind so certain times there traffic seems very quiet.

b) This is spot on, RB is picking up over there mainly because customers can already access the FAA feed data (even we sell it) and also the percentage of aircraft in the US with ADS-B transponders is lower but increasing

c) Nope nothing like that.

Spread the word across the world and more areas of coverage will pop up :)

(c) is closest to the correct answer, the reason being that many aircraft operating US domestic (and some international) routes don't have ADS-B.

That means that no matter how many users there are picking them up locally on their RadarBoxes (who will see the aircraft on the screen, although not on the map), network users won't see them at all.

Thanks Gents for your replies. Can't wait for the US to catch up with Europe :-)
