I just set up my PiAware with a ProStick Plus and a onelinkmore antenna today. Currently I have the antenna attached to an empty soup can sitting on my window sill in front of my desk. The furthest aircraft I have tracked is only 53nm. I am wondering if my computers could be interfering with the signal? I am pretty much limited to an indoor antenna setup, but I am super new to all of this and pretty much know nothing about radio signals and best practices. My thought was that the window would be a good location cause that offers the best “line of sight” for the aircrafts I see on a daily basis, but if computers are a big interference then where I have it right now is probably less than ideal.
Maybe it is just because I have a cheap antenna, but I feel like I should be able to get out to 100nm. I am on the second (top) floor of a condo complex if that makes any difference.
