I just installed a complete setup Rasp Pi from ebay with an orange prostick and a flighaware 978+1090 bandpass filter. I have an external antenna mounted on top of my hangar here at JKA, so I should have nearly unrestricted line-of-sight coverage of the field.
While the entire intent was to provide at or near surface coverage locally so my family can see me on taxi-out or taxi-in, I get virtually zero aircraft within 5 miles of the reciever.
I have 3 questions if anyone could help.
How can I improve reception within 5 miles of the antenna
What is needed to add 978/UAT coverage?
Is there any benefit to the “enterprise” account, it appears I need to further upgrade my account to achieve what I intended, which was to depict my aircraft taxiing out for takeoff or taxi-in after landing.
