I have been using a standard dongle on my PiAware system and thought I could get a little more performance out of the Pro Stick so I ordered 2, one for here and another for another location. I was disappointed right away as I went from 20 planes to about 3 with the pro stick. I thought it might have been a lull in traffic so i left it running and over the next few days watched my ratings on Flight aware drop. A day or so ago I added the 1090 filter thinking that I had not set the gain right even though it was 45. When I did that it dropped to almost 0 planes. After playing with the gain with no real change, I decided to go back to my original dongle and WOW, up popped about 20 planes right away.
I am not sure what to try next as I have swapped to the other prostick with the same results and only have good receive with the old dongle.
