I have a dedicated RPI and a dAISy hat that I track ships and vessels at sea. I’m located about 25 miles from the Atlantic Ocean in South Carolina USA. If I were closer to the ocean, I know I would see more vessels. I currently have a 2meter/70 centimeter Diamond X50 antenna, (that is a problem), up about 14 ft. HAAT, (that is a problem), RG-58X coax, 25 ft., a 6" jumper from a SO239 to a SMA to the dAISy hat.
I see just a few vessels, and I feed them to VesselFinder and AIShub. Does anyone have any advice about better coverage? I do have an option to move the RPI about 12 miles closer to the sea. I’m looking for some “configuration” settings.
Thanks in advance!
