Nearest Airports

do i just put my airport in my town or the airports that surround my area ?

Put in - where?

I didn’t have to put in any - the system worked out where I was (it was 30 miles off) from the data I was feeding and the map was populated with towns and airports.

Looking at your stats - You seem to have an antenna problem (ideally above roof height) or downfeed problem on the coaxial cable (check the connections), you should see 100’s of aircraft a day up to 200 miles away or more.

Looking at the other users around him, it looks like there isn’t a lot of traffic around that area. If you want to change the closest airport setting, under your “My ADS-B”, click on “Not the nearest airport? Click here to change.”
