As most of you probably know, planefinder.net is awesome for us spotters. When their local antenna near JFK is operational, we can see high level detail, down to aircraft taxiing around the field. But more often than not, this high level detail is not available at JFK.
Well, I am working with PF.net to fix this. Within the next few weeks, I should have all of the equipment necessary to pick up the ADS-B signals and upload to the site. I already have the antenna, and I am just waiting on the receiver. Barring any unforeseen issues such as a weak signal, the high-level data should be up 24x7x365 from my house.
I will post an update when everything is operational.
This will be my gift to all the NYCAers who helped change me from a cell-phone camera toting idiot, to a DSLR 300mm lens equipped spotter.
