    No need to thank me, if it had taken any effort or expense on my part, I wouldn't have done it.

    Is it online now? I see a lot of planes on the ground at JFK...more than the last time I looked.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    No sir, not yet. I don't even have the receiver yet, just the antenna. The data you see is from the part-time receiver planefinder.net has running.

    Ok everyone, I have all the equipment I need! Played with it a bit today, and I'm still looking for the best set up. Even with the antenna on its side on my desk, I pick up everything in the air within probably 60 miles. When I move it around a bit, I even get ground data from the eastern side of JFK! The data is not yet shared publicly, working on that. Here is what it looks like right now.

    Forget about planes on the ground, can it keep track of turtles on the runway?

    Ok, we are fully operational! I don't have the antenna placed in an optimal position yet, but it's good enough. I can pick up most everything in the air in the immediate area, and just about everything on the ground at JFK.
    To check it my data is currently up, go to: www.pinkfroot.com/sharestatus.asp?sharecode=Jv

    Thats awesome. It would be even more awesome if the lines were color coded for different aircraft types or airlines.

    I'm not even sure that information is transmitted. Though I have some exploring left to do with the program.
