Probably cold because there's no explanation here of what this is all about and who might be interested.

How do you find your own GPS coordinate?

Some information:

FlightFeeder is a network ADS-B receiver. It receives ADS-B data directly from airplane transponders via a small antenna. FlightFeeder then makes the real-time data available on the local network to users and also sends it to FlightAware over the Internet. FlightFeeder only requires an external antenna (included), Internet connection over Ethernet, and power (via a USB cable into a wall adapter).

FlightFeeder is compatible with virtually all existing ADS-B software packages like PlanePlotter and BaseStation. Users can connect to their FlightFeeder over their LAN to receive all data. Users can also choose to view flight data on the FlightAware.com web site.

FlightFeeder is roughly the size of a can of soda and uses less power than a night light. There are no moving parts or temperature restrictions.

How do you find your own GPS coordinate?

If you don't have a smartphone, GPS unit etc, then you can go to Google Maps, click on a point, and it'll tell you in the pop-up windows in the top left corner.

Heat from me btw. Excellent find

Nice find but you are unlikely to get a box in the majority of the UK. I am in Central UK and there are 99 existing receivers within 150 miles of me. Possibly worth it for a free Planeplotter licence if you have your own existing ADS-B kit (an RTL-SDR dongle and home made antenna)

Thanks, Firefox browser does it automactically ^_^

Just try'd my hand for one, I have a other version but doesn't need to be link to pc to use.
