I have gotten really into using Raspberry Pis’ to track airplanes. We have a hangar at the airport, but, due to placement, we are unable to have power or internet near the Piaware. The run is ~15 meters of cable, but, the performance is hideous relative to when we used the Low Loss Reverse SMA Female → N-Type Male that was 8 meters at home. We experienced a drop of 80-90% on message rate and aircraft.
Do you all recommend any inline amplifiers to help with longer cable runs? We already have the flightaware ADS-B 1090MHz Band-pass SMA Filter which has a built in 20 dB amplifier.
Thanks in advance!
