I’m thinking about building a piware receiver but have a question about coverage. From the FAQ:
**How large is the coverage area for an ADS-B site? (Back to top)
The coverage is line-of-sight between the antenna and the airplane. That means that coverage at higher altitude is much greater than at lower altitude.
The distance of coverage varies based on the installation. FlightAware’s experience is that it ranges from 100mi / 160km for a small antenna next to a window and can be up to 300mi / 480km for a large antenna on a mast.**
Does this mean that if I have my antenna inside next to a window, it’s only going to “see” airplanes that fly within the “cone” from my window up?
