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.
In December, we activated nearly 100 Flightradar24-supplied ADS-B receivers and hundreds more home-built receivers. Each new receiver helps us increase flight tracking coverage and provide redundancy across our network of over 25,000 terrestrial receivers.
In December, we activated our northernmost and southernmost receivers for the year, one at 71 degrees north latitude and the other at 71 degrees south latitude. The two new receivers activated in Antarctica in December bring the total to four new activations in 2020 and six total receivers there.
In December, we also expanded coverage in western Brazil, southwestern Russia, and the western half of the United States.

If you’d you like more information about our application process, you can read more about it in our blog post.
