Hi - Can you help me! My son (13 yrs old) is intersted in becoming an aviation enthusiast. He wants to start collecting the reg numbers of aircraft. He knows of someone who has an SBS Radar Box which enables them to identify the aircraft going over their house. All we have so far is a good pair of binoculars (20X80)! I know you can look up aircraft registrations to find out what aircraft they are, but is there another way of finding out the reg numbers of aicraft flying over your house if you can't see the number without buying a Radar Box that isn't going to cost me a fortune here in UK. For example. is there some computer software or internet site I can use to discover whats flyiong overhead. Perhaps at a later date I might need to get him a radar box once I know he is taking up the hobby seriously but at present can't afford this.
Thanks for your help with this - this is all knew to me so be gentle with me!!
