I am using an RPi3B with the FA pro stick Plus. I get pretty good reception from my garage but would like to improve it by moving my setup. Ideally I would like to use a USB extension cable.
I purchased this one: monoprice 32 ft 2 port active usb cable When I use it, I see a tremendous loss in range and aircraft counts. I even bought a power adapter for the extension end to eliminate power drop issues over the cable. (i also tested it on some other rtl-sdr’s on my pc and had the same sort of issues)
I also tried this on my other rtl-sdr’s: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002KKZAIU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 3ft monorpice usb extension cable… I also had issues with data reception…
Are there recommended or known good cables? Any thoughts on why I am having issues?
