Since 10 days now the reported positions on my statistics is getting lower and lower.
My equipment is brand new so there is no issue yet for humidity penetrating connections plugs etc.
I get great cover. I get sometimes max 190 messages /sec but my statistics on reported positions are rock bottom. It seems for some reason that the system is rejecting my reports. What can i do to improve it?
The dongle i use is a aliexpress common as seen on this URL
No LNA or filters on this one i suppose
My antenna is a co-co made from HELIAX 1/4 coax cable and the feed line is a 50cm RG8 to the dongle in an air/water tight enclosure under the antenna. Connection of the dongle with the raspberry is done by a 4m USB cable that seemed to work until 15 days ago. Since then from 390.000 position reported i dropped gradually down to average 45 to 60.000 max.
if i try to reduce my gain other than -10 which is the max then range is dropped dramatically as well as the messages/sec.
Has anybody else faced the same problem?
Any ideas or solutions?
