Just installed a replacement antenna for a hosted FlightFeeder site. The original antenna got moisture and was replaced by a brand new one, along with the brand new cable that came with the replacement antenna.
The N connector was installed with self fusing tape, from the flange all the way to the cable and the back to the flange. On top of it electrical tape was applied, the same fashion. Antenna is mounted on a 8 ft pole mounted atop the roof.
At first the receiver was working flawlessly but from 3 days it’s range has degraded a ton. I also noticed that Flight Radar 24 F-SBFI2 receiver also had it’s range decreased. I suspect that there may be any interference or something that may be fooling both receivers AGCs. FR24 antenna did not need to be touched.
I also noticed that FlightFeeder GPS tag is orange and whenever I hover the mouse over it the message “Receiver more than 45ns from GPS time”. I have powered off and on the receiver with no improvements on that.
Any ideas on both issues ?
