Hi! I’ll start telling you about my current setup:
My splash/sun blocker (?) pringles mini can with the dongle attached to a USB 3.0 extension with a power source switch so it doesn’t depend on RPI4 power:
The default Nooelec mini antenna attached (magnet) to the outmost part of an air conditioner that is always off when I have the antenna there, for a base.
I have a clear view of around 45° to S and 45° NW (as you see In the photo, the other quadrants are blocked by my building or the one in front of me, sometime maybe I could try to get this to the roof, but no so simple right now. Max contact with this setup is at 45nm, max one-time range 77nm.
For my first project I’m buying this:
Plus an F female-female connector, and the screws, obviously
The idea is to start working with the cable I have a home (an RG58) and then upgrade to an RG6, will be using the core of this cable for the “legs and top” of the antenna too.
This is my scan with my current setup, maybe I’ll add a filter later when I get one that ships to my country.
Any recommendation will be much appreciated
