    The 'Antenna Cable' shouldn't be wrap around the stair case railing like in that above photo.

    F-RPLL2 GPS?

    Welcome to the Philippine feeder bunch! There are 12 of us now. You might want to look at the Flightradar24/FR24 Feeder Chat forum and the Other Forums/Off Topic for articles that help doing stuff.

    I noticed your GPS sensor is not outside at the antenna height or as far as the 5 meters of the GPS cabling will allow. That will show the elevation of the antenna above sea level. The GPS sensor cable can be lengthened by splicing a piece of RG59 between both ends if it won't go to the top of your antenna mast. If the cable is too long, simply roll up the excess. Your GPS reported height can be viewed on your receiver status page.

    Also tape off your coax connection and any other exposed connections to make it water tight from the monsoonal rains. Water migrating inside the coax can affect your range and oxidize the aluminum shielding making it ineffective.

    Your setup is filling in a lot of blank space on the FR24 map overlapping coverage with F-RPLL1 and F-RPLP1 which will make MLAT possible later.

    Check out the other forums noted above for possibilities of collaboration with other near by feeders.

    Looking good. A quick glance and I think, your range has improved further. Am I right? Yours stats page will tell you.

    Nice photos!
    I like the first photo. It shows many different colors on those buildings.

    I will try to raise the antenna higher.

    I'd like to jump in here.

    Photos can be deceptive. We constantly monitor the performance of all our receivers and the achieved range for F-RPLL2 is excellent - in all directions.

    Hello and welcome to the forum...

    Didn't notice this post late as I don't look into this particular part of the forum.

    But yes, just as Peterhr here suggest, do please raise the antenna a bit with a bracket and pole. That would give it much a better clearance. Your coverage appears VERY similar to RPLL1 (which is offline at the moment), except the east I think. Any particular reason why it is not raised? cable length issue?

    Those antennas would have benefited from a bamboo pole to have lifted them above roof height - even if just by a meter or two.
