Current VRS idiots that are banned

    ADSBx will not longer accept new VRS feeds as of June 1st 2019.

    Examples of things that VRS feeds commonly do:

    Running VRS on a Pi, instead of sending data sending direct from dump1090, using VRS to send it. This is bad and doesn't make sense at all. Usually results in IP ban when VRS crashes out.

    Running VRS with poor configuration. This results in permanent and immediate IP ban, no questions asked.

    Sending Basestation data to compressed VRS feed port. Immediate IP Ban. CompressedVRS, it was repeated multiple times in the instructions. Results in IP Ban.


    Here's a short list of the repeat offenders.

    As it appears to annoy you so much I am surprised you have offered it.

    It's not that it annoys me and maybe we will reconsider, but I spend hours every week with a high percentage of VRS feeds sending bad data.

    I know people are going to take it personally, but there are a multitude of reasons not to feed with VRS.

    Not taking it personally and I'm not a Windows fanboy, but what are some of those reasons? I've been feeding ADSB-X and two others with VRS on Windows for years.

    Other than VRS, what choice do I have for Windows? I can understand the lack of love for Windows among the illuminati but a) my dedicated 24/7 Windows PC is paid for and works and b) my feeds have not given anyone any trouble as far as I can tell.

    Incidentally, FlightRadar24 sent me an email yesterday with the subject "Deactivation of Windows feeds". In part it states "... in about a week's time, we will remove FR24 Windows feeding software from "Share your data https://www.flightradar24.com/share-your-data" page."

    I made their job easier by deactivating my FR24 feed the same day.

    This thread is about feeding from VRS with wrong data format. Instead of VRS you can use dump1090 for Win and mlat-client for Win (links to download on forum, I can repost here).
    But please install first NTP service on your PC https://www.meinbergglobal.com/download/ntp/windows/ntp-4.2.8p13-win32-setup.exe
