Good - I'm encouraged to hear that AirNav are looking into the black hole !

I have stayed on the 30th floor of the Conrad and can't say that I noticed a problem. The problem with hotel windows is that some seem to shield the signal greatly. The first time I noticed this was in Dubai. I had a great room with an unobstructed view and was picking up virtually nothing. I then opened the window and put the antenna on a ledge. Within seconds my screen was full of stuff up to 250 miles away....

I am now back in Australia and wasn't able to "solve" the problem of the "Black Hole of Singapore".

There was definitely no issue re windows etc as the aerial was outside at all times.  I was getting reception of up to 240nm with Radarbox, as long as aircraft were north of 2N.  Once they flew south of 2N they disappeared off the map and appeared in the aircraft list with lat/long info showing blank, (but still appearing on the map in Planeplotter).

Cheers
Mark

Thanks, Mark.

I guess we'll have to wait for AirNav to diagnose and fix the issue.  If it helps, I can confirm that my Network capture still isn't logging any traffic between 2°N and 2°S in the meantime.

Incidentally, even though the Network is up at the moment, the status page says it's on maintenance, looks like someone forgot to reset it !

It may be a while before I return to Singapore, but hope AirNav can fix the problem before then.

Cheers
