How do I remove old feeder sites?

I the link above it lists 3 of my older receivers, how can I remove them?

Go to your stats page from that link. Make sure you’re logged in to the FlightAware site, as you are when you post in these forums. You’ll see a gear icon to the right of your sites. Click the icon. If the site has been dormant for a couple of days you’ll have the option of removing it manually. If it remains dormant then it’s automatically removed after a month anyway.


3 I have are from 2015, 2015, and 2016. It don’t see an option to remove in the configure window.

Only options like Airport, MLAT, location etc…

I’m just posting from memory. I might be wrong, in which case someone else or a FA staffer will be able to advise.

We keep the user/site association forever, so they’ll always show up on the “claim” page. The site itself is retired and will disappear from your stats page after it’s been inactive for a while. If the same ID later starts feeding again, the existing site will be revived.


I installed my new receiver by fault using a new ID, but wanted to have it running on my existing ID.

So i changed ID and after 24 hours the link to remove appeared in the gear window of the previous ID/site

I see the claim page shows the feeder-id for my active site. Does it show the feeder-id for old sites too (I don’t know since I only have the one active site)? If so, that’s handy to know – a kind of backup of the ID in case an old site can be resurrected and the ID is needed.

Yeah it shows old IDs.

Nice one thanks for confirming.

For inactive stations, only feeder-id is saved, the station number is NOT saved. If you use any such feeder-id again, you will NOT get old station number, a brand new number will be alloted.

I have 11 feeder-ids on my claim page, out of which only 4 have site mumbers (items 1, 3, 10 & 11 in screenshot below)
