Using , on recommendation of one of the guys her): RTL-SDR dongle V3, with ADS-B PcB antenna.
After moving around my antenna, I think I found the “best” spot. If I check my “range” it looks not too bad. I know I do not have a range to the north and there is a gap was ( because of the apartment building in front of me. But in the the weird thing is that hardly see planes in the east. I checked and there are planers, (Berlin, Hannover, Hamburg). So something is not right.
I put some money in my piggy bank this year:) so I am able to upgrade my gear. So I would appreciate it if someone of you is willing to give me some advice how to improve my reception.
I attached some screenshots to give you an idea. of the current situation and my reception.
Another antenna, dongle extra LNA, I don’t know. Hope you will bear in mind that I am not a tech guy. I simply love tracking planes and feeding them.
I also noted that that in the graph ABS messages rate, the messages >3 dBFS is very low, compared to some other screenshots I saw here. Could that also be a reason?
Please remember my antenna is just temporary fixed. I know it looks ugly.
Thanks in advance.
