Australian & New Zealand Data Feeders
« on: January 09, 2016, 07:29:18 pm »


If you have applied for a RadarBox24 unit and you are using a Web Based Email Address such as Gmail, Hotmail, etc PLEASE make sure you check your Spam/Junk Folder for emails !!

I have been working hard with Andre to get Australia & New Zealand Data Feeders and we are looking at getting as many Data Feeders up and running as we can over the next weeks, months, etc !!

If you are in a Remote Area or an Area that is not already covered by RadarBox24 PLEASE go to https://www.radarbox24.com/addcoverage and register your interest in becoming a Data Feeder.

I have just received my box today..Do I just plug it in as I received  no instructions etc.  Does it just start sending data automatically.   Also is it possible for me to read data sent

If you have received a RB Comstation (Ethernet Jack on Front):

1. Setup antenna
2. Make connection between antenna and Comstation unit
3. Setup the Ethernet connection between router (your LAN)
4. Setup energy supply of the box.

As soon as the electrical energy is supplied the box will boot and shortly after it will start receiving and uploading ADS-B data.

How you can see what you are receiving:

- clear text messages: up link to RB24.COM is encrypted.
- you can see your box's name (PGANRB3xxxxx) stated on RB24.com
- if you box is linked with  your RB24 account, if you have one, you can click on your box''s name and a new map opens showing traffic received by your box.
- Maybe it''s possible to get login data from AirNav Systems so you can use ANRB V6.00.000 Software to display the airframes received by your box.

Any more questions? Just ask.

Thank you for your reply.  I have installed and all working but I need to put it in higher position to get better coverage
What kind of coax cable do I need to buy

That depends on the distance between the antenna and box that has to be bridged.

In my case (20m) it was necessary to use a low loss cable like the ECOFLEX 15 (+). Cost were about 6€ per metre.

I'm sure that there are equal types of cable available at your place. Unfortunately I don't know their exact type-name.

You can buy ready made extension Cables from this site but make sure you get the right one.

From my point of view the cables have a way too high attenuation at 1090MHz for cable lenght of about 20m and more. Especially if no amplifier, placed close to the antenna, is used.

Yes I agree 100% with you Ingo !!   I did add an extra 5m to my Antenna and still works fine.

Is there anyway to find out where various feeders are in New Zealand.  Im interested to know where 405 is in the South Island.  It seems to be able to cover a great range

Hi

goto http://www.airnavsystems.com/RadarBox/network.php then "right click" and chose
"View Page Source", then search for "New Zealand".

Unfortunately these are rough guess entries of the locations.  Futhermore they are not complete or 100% accurate either. You won't get the users name or address unless he unveils himself. Not all users of boxes are active in this or any other forum related to our hobby.

I just installed my receiver in Auckland. I used LMR 400 cable 14 mtr. Have picked up planes just over 400km away, so can recommend that cable.
