So right now I am running a 2M J-Pole that I already had up, with about 50’ of LMR-400. I am getting around a lot within the 100NM range, a little in the 150nm range.
I have a new antenna to go up for 1090Mhz, but I am curious if I will see a big improvement with it. Receive is a lot less of an issue than transmit, when it comes to antennas.
Right now I am using a Pi2, Flight Stick Pro and 1090Mhz filter. The antenna is right at the roof line.
Curious what a difference a shorter feed line would really make with LMR-400 already, and swapping out the antenna.
