Hello, I’m a bit of a newbie (set up my PiAware 4 days ago) so sorry for the possibly n00b question.
I live right under the flight path for London Heathrow so I’m picking up a lot of traffic despite my minuscule £7 indoor antenna. Occasionally I’ll see that I’ve picked up a plane flying over London, like IAD to Kuwait or something. These planes are up around 35,000 feet and it’s very impressive that my antenna picks these up!
However, these rarely ever get put into the “Recent flights with positions from this feeder on FlightAware.com” category but instead the “Additional recent flights fed to FlightAware” category. Why is it that it’s only the latter positions that seem to contribute to FlightAware.com?
For example, I generally only ever have landing planes in the former category and they’re always around altitude 1,200 - 1,800 and I usually only have 1-2 positions listed in the tracklog (though I was quite pleased once to see 4!).
Any ideas why the higher altitude planes get a miss from my station? Thanks!
