Remotest capital city in the southern hemisphere? Curious… where? I’m a southerner, but now living in the northern hemisphere.
As for range/coverage figures differences, I have been observing that too. FA appears to be more ‘generous’. This was likely going to be my next question.
I’m new to the ADS-B tracking hobby. As hamradio is kind of limited to my modest station right now, due to the low phase of the sunspot cycle, I was looking for something else radio related to learn and play with.
The biggest question mark I still have in my mind, is why the number of tracked planes collapsed. I have changed hardware many times, except for the antenna location. Had I not made screen captures of my past tracking totals, I would doubt my own memory. The only explanation left, as I was told early on, is a reduction in the number of flights over my ‘airspace’. Still hard to believe that a reduction of half to 2 thirds is possible so abruptly.
