So I have been using the standard 1090 antenna off of amazon cheap antenna with pretty good sucess but wanted more range. I’m getting just about 100 miles to the wsw direction with ads-b. I have an antennacraft st-2 outside on a mast about 30ft high that I’ve used with my uniden bdc996xt for 5 or 6 years with no issues. I decided to get an adapter from the rb6 cable to the sma connector on the flightaware filter then into the prostick plus. GOt it in the mail today, hooked it up and I’m getting almost no reception. I know the st2 is not a dedicated 1090 antenna but I figured with the extra height I would get better reception.
Any help would be great.
