- WebCam of all traffic landing at London Heathrow Airport;
- Auto-photo featuring the latest aircraft landing;
- Automatic RadarBox Screen Shots of traffic over the London Area;
- Forum;

I don't know if this if a problem at just my end - photos are coming through as they should, but on Live Radar, I'm just getting the same RB display timed at 1208UTC today, nothing showing on it,and after each update, the screen is just the same, now 1441.

Hi all.

I was doing some work to set up my RB antenna and pc elsewhere. Ideally I need to add a service status window or simply a message/icon to indicate if the RB is offline for maintenance. James

Hi Tarbat, Windows Vista and IE 7.0.6001.18000IS.   I did try Firefox once several years ago and gave up on it - I found it easier to stick with IE.

Hi all,

The site works best with Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari. IE isn't as fast as these browsers which is something to do with rendering HTML tables.

Hi, I assume that's James, one of the reasons I stuck with Windows (either Millenium or maybe XP) and IE, is the same reason I opted to buy RB rather than the SBS - I'm crap with computer programs!    Google Chrome, Safari ?   I know what a Safari Land Rover is - "rendering HTML tables" - errrrrr...........

Hi Jon, yes James here. The think IE lower speed isn't really noticeable on machines with 3 ghz or more. I'm working on a tweak to get it running super fast though.

On a different note did you notice the improvement in the quality of the images recently? I made some tweaks that I'm really happy with. If you look at the edges of photos over a week old they have a slight burring at the edges. Latest tweak and all photos are crisp and sharp :-)

Hi James, yes, I had noticed an improvement, on some pics you actually identify what species the feathered birds are!!!!
