About the city of Invercargill

It's the southernmost and westernmost city in New Zealand, and one of the southernmost cities in the world. It is the commercial center of the Southland region. The city lies in the heart of the wide expanse of the Southland Plains on the Oreti or New River some 18 km north of Bluff, which is the southernmost town in the South Island. It sits amid rich farmland that is bordered by large areas of conservation land and marine reserves, including Fiordland National Park covering the south-west corner of the South Island and the Catlins coastal region.

According to him: "I've been following RadarBox for a while, but seeing that the coverage in the southern part of NZ, made me apply for a receiver." 

Zsolt gives some tips for the new feeders regarding the installation of the equipment: "Place the antenna in the best accessible location you can find. Just go with the provided antenna cable, do not try to build or buy an extension yourself. Your signal could drop a lot if you don't know what you are doing."

About being part of RadarBox's global ADS-B network, Zsolt says: "I am very happy to be able to share data for an area that needed coverage, and maybe helping with ADS-B and MLAT coverage in my region."
