    I don't think I've seen this mentioned, so, let me point it out ...

    For folks building antennas and looking for a quick comparison - start dump1090 in interactive mode, look for the "signal" column in the table, this displays what is known as RSSI or Received Signal Strength Indication - consider it an uncalibrated signal strength meter - you can use it to compare the strength of two signals received by the same hardware, very useful for quick comparisons, or tweaking/tuning/trimming antennas.

    Find the instructions you used to install dump1090 - they should tell you how to start it in interactive mode, and which directory you should be in.

    Typically it will be something like

    Code:
    ./dump1090 --interactive
    dump1090 has many options available, and these options are executed by including the "switch" when calling the program, if calling it from a command line prompt, or, if calling it from a script, the script can be edited to include the "switch" - at the command line type dump1090 --help to see the available options, it can be run with multiple options by entering the options on the same line, for example, if you wanted both interactive mode and the integrated web server at the same time.

    Code:
    ./dump1090 --net --interactive
