got a little bored today so thought I'd see if I could find some online aircraft and marine tracking systems, kind of listen to them on the radios and see where they are on the map.
Came up with these two so far:

shipping tracker

flight radar 24

and finally

Netherlands airspace tracker

the shipping one if you click on the vessel you'll get all the info on it

If you like those you will probably like Planeplotter. This runs on your computer rather than being web-based but for a one-off 25 (I can't compete with Yorkshire but am a Scotsman!) it receives a web feed of Mode S positioning which you can display on a map of your choice (or downloaded via the program). You can play with it for free without the web feed to see what it is like - first impression is a lot of settings but once mastered it's 25 well spent.
A quick comparison with the data on FlightRadar 24 showed Planeplotter with more data which is contributed by members with 'radar' boxes.
I am not in any way associated with COAA, the publisher, but it is a very good piece of work. Google will find the homepage; there is also an active Yahoo Group dedicated to it.
My first post here, finished!

PS What a good site - despite umpteen years into radio and the internet I am surprised I have not found it before now!

Thanks for the welcome. Here's another one for you for marine AIS - I think this one is the best I have found - you can click through the vessels to get a photo and statistics . . .

Change the sea area on the left hand side as it's set for my home area. It's an excellent addition to a scanner if you are near a shipping lane.

MarineTraffic is a good one as already mentioned. another shipping one is Ship AIS. A good one for air traffic is Radar Virtuel. Clicking on the plane brings up data from it. :)

This is brilliant & makes me wonder how we managed without internet in the 80s

Hi All,

I have Flightradar24 on my PC & i-phone it is supposed to run in real time but is restricted to aircraft with ADS-B transponders (currently about 60%) still bloody scary to see how busy out airspace is. but fun none the less.

Enjoy

I have been using these types of tracking websites for years. Plane Finder, Ship Finder ect ect. Along with a Scanner and frequencys installed you can monitor both ships and aircraft. To Monitor Ships you need to be near the coast. To follow/track Military aircraft, is a little bit more tricky as they use UHF and VHF frequencies. Now to receive these aircraft you need a scanner which covers 200mhz to 400mhz with AM modulation on all aircraft bands.

To track military aircraft you need to use www.abbsexchange.com which is free.

If your stuck with frequencies just let know. To get ALL military aircraft frequencies I suggest you join www.milscanners.org. its free.
