Orange Flightaware Stick

I am intrested in putting my orange flighaware adsb stick close to the antenna and run an active usb cable would it improve the distance thanks.

Regards Lino.

for me with FA blue stick this did not work so I put it directly on RPi.
however when i moved the whole system to my balcony (temporarily) and instead of 5m coax
used 1m or less coax, there was increase in messages, planes and distance.


Be aware, some of those active repeater cables cause timing issues with MLAT.

  1. How much is the length of coax cable between antenna and orange stick if you plug the orange stick directly into Pi?

  2. What type of coax cable are you using?

The coax lenghth is 1 metre cable LMR400…

Regards Lino.
