Brand new around here. Found an old Raspbery Pi A model two weeks ago and ordered a dongle from Jetvision. Now I am tracking aircraft and I am totally addicted.
Last week I ordered a Flightaware pro stick plus, because I hope to get more range and hits. Also I built my first coketenna Still untested, so no idea if it will work. The stick arrived today by mail.
And now my problems start. Apparently I was totally mistaken about how I would connect the stick to the coax cable. The sma connector is smaller then I anticipated. And now I am really confused as to how to connect the cable to the stick. I have some connectors a friend gave me, and I think that those are called f-connectors. They are used to connect a coax cable to a cable modem for internet access…
I am fairly certain the stick has a SMA female connection. Is this correct?
But my the diameter of my coax cable is even larger then sma, so I need some sort of adapter or a way to connect coax directly to sma male.
When I google for f-connector female to sma male I don’t get any hits.
Could you guys tell me how you connected your cantenna’s, coketenna’s to your dongles? I would really appreciate it!
