I’ve had my UAT receiver up for roughly a week now and recently changed over to the orange flightaware dongle. Doing so my range doubled and at times can see aircraft on UAT anywhere to 75-100 miles in each direction. I’ve noticed i’m picking up a lot of “TIS-B” traffic and wondering how this is different then UAT. From my research I’m less than 10 miles (as the crow flies) from a TIS-B Tower located in Kenly, NC. Can I assume i’m seeing traffic being rebroadcasted by this tower since the TIS-B traffic comes and go’s throughout the day?
FWIW I’ve also been picking up F15e Fighter Jets from Seymour Johnson AFB on TIS-B
