Curiosity - another project LOON flight HBAL0177 wandered nearby early this morning. In looking at the data from the local SkyView plots, I noticed the FlightFeeder was reporting a significantly different altitude from my PiAware feeder. Why would there be such a significant difference in reported altitudes (57,500 vs 39,200 feet)?
The two feeder antennae are located withing 2 feet of each other at the same elevation.
The screenshots below were taken within 10 seconds of each other, there is a tiny difference in position.
Both data sources are ADS-B
FlightFeeder Orange box, FlightAware antenna+cable, gain set at 40
PiAware - Spider antenna, FlightAware ProPlus, gain set at -10
