    Malebo Hill, Bomen and Gumly NBN towers are within range, Malebo Hill has a microwave (link) dish pointing right at me to another tower. Though I would expect my dongle to have a drop as well (not as much as the FR box though) but seems to be unchanged.

    F-YSWG1 maximum distance
    21 June: 160nm
    22 June: 125nm
    23 June: 127nm
    24 June: 126nm
    25 June: 107nm
    26 June: 105nm
    27 June: 97nm*

    T-YSWG2 maximum distance
    21 June: 106nm
    22 June: 105nm
    23 June: 105nm
    24 June: 107nm
    25 June: 108nm
    26 June: 108nm
    27 June: 99nm*

    * not complete 24 hour figure.

    Old F-YSWG1 range, with the current range (darker [black] opacity).

    Anyone near NBN Wireless towers? I've noticed a 50% drop in range, not to sure when it happened but it was fine in May (June has been busy, haven't been able to look).

    I've rebooted the FR24 receiver but no improvement, so will take a look at the equipment once my shoulder injury has healed, hoping it's something simple and not frequency related.

    Once I've done my own problem solving but have no solution, I'll then contact FR24 support. At this stage, not much we both can do ATM.

    Edit:
    Doing some digging in the logs, everything was fine on the 16th June (before a rain event) but post rain event (19th June) the signal range decrease is noticeable. I'm thinking that water has got into the join of the antenna and the cable or into the holes made by the Cockatoos in the cable, the self amalgamating tape may have contracted and expanded (allowing water to ingress, causing the signal loss ) with the very cold mornings but mild days we had before the rain. Early in the week, I'll inspect the antenna and the cable.
    To find out if your near "a" tower, you can use http://www.rfnsa.com.au/nsa/search.cgi

    The freqs currently in use are 2.3Ghz , even with imaging, I cant see it affecting you, even if its right next door, they also claim (but this is lying filfth that is the Australian Govt, so take it with a gain of salt) that they comply with all EME safety requirements as required by ARPANSA.

    Got it on FR24 this morning doing the same run. Thanks.
