Yesterday I was update my Piaware form 5.0 to 6.0 and i was select option [N] (default) from installation process. Now, my receiver have a less gain. On old piaware (5.0) i was a distanse about 180-190 nm, on piaware 6.0 only about 100 nm.
I don’t change any details form config file: dump1090-fa

The receiver gain value is 60, and i think that from Piware 5.0 this max vaule was smaller, but i don’t know how many.
