I was tracking hundreds of planes at once with hundreds of km range and now…almost nothing. Barely a plane if any. Has anyone ever had their antenna fail?
I have the FlightAware antenna and have since April 2019. Been rock-solid since. Suddenly nothing going on. I’ve replaced the LNA, I’ve swapped SDR dongles, now I’m thinking it’s the antenna itself. I don’t know if extreme wind sheer could have snapped something or what, but it’s been a very windy fall in Iowa, and it’s on a 10’ high pole ontop of a 28’ house so…possible?
I’m likely going to buy a new one and try it but I’m annoyed and wondering if anyone else had the darned thing fail. I miss my planes!
