I’m currently in the process of optimizing my ADS-B flight tracking setup. Before I start this I’d like to see if you guys can spot specific optimizations in my setup.
My current setup:
[antenna] --(10m 50ohm cable)-- [FlightAware 1090 MHz ADS-B Bandpass SMA Filter] - [FlightAware Pro Stick Plus] - [Raspberry Pi 3]
Antenna I have: https://shop.jetvision.de/epages/64807909.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/64807909/Products/67020
10M cable I have: https://shop.jetvision.de/epages/64807909.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/64807909/Products/70400
The cable runs through a duct besides a power cable (230V). In addition to that it’s 10 meters, which is quite long imho.
I’m specifically wondering if reducing the cable length to say 1-2m and placing the Raspberry Pi close by will help with reception. This also means the cable will not be running besides a powerline (230V).
