Each month we send out complete ADS-B receiver kits that include an ADS-B receiver, antennas, and all necessary cabling to qualified hosts. You can apply to host one of our receivers or easily build your own.

The dozens of new Flightradar24-supplied receiver kits and the hundreds of home-built receivers activated in August combined with over 20,000 existing receivers, helped us track over 6 million flights.

New receivers activated in August helped improve our coverage in places like west African, India, and Indonesia. Our MLAT coverage in the United States experienced improvement as well with nearly 20 new receivers.
