Did a lot of researching from all the posts people have put up here in reference to improving my signal. I started with the FA Pro stick dongle. Was hooked up to a spare antenna I had laying around (Up in the attic).
I recently purchased 25 feet of LMR 400 cable and the FA 1090 antenna! I put it up in the attic as high as possible.
I’ve enclosed pictures. Im sure you can figure out the before and after. Here is the direct link to my dump1090
Greate! Most users of FA 26" antenna have similar experience as yours.
FA 26" antenna is a good antenna with a very good price.
Do you use FA Filter? Adding FA filter also improves reception, but not in all cases. It depends on location and rf noise. It is hard to predict, and can only be determined by actually trying the filter.
This is great to hear/see, as I’m planning on getting one of these (and my first Piaware) very soon. Thanks for linking for feed, as it’s cool to see it in action (and in my area - I’m at PHL). But why are so many flights missing their callsign?
I cant agree more I bought 33ft of Lmr440 with the Fa antenna and its on the roof at 80ft. what a difference at night when aircraft heading to Europe .Would solar activity have any impact on the day traffic ?
