    Damn .. stumbled across this old thread .., has it been almost 7 years already .... miss ol’ Scanhorse ...

    The previous mentioned antenna is fried .. must have taken a lightning strike. Only shows one and one plane .. Not climbing up on the roof though. Getting a second rpi to hook up to it though, just for the hell of it.

    Had to switch to rpi when my windows feeder got switched off. Decided to install piaware and it turned out to be far easier than fr24feed. Got a flightaware pro stick and a new antenna and now feed from mostly within 140nm. Have the occasional hit almost all the way to the coast though. will try to improve somewhat.

    Any other feeders north of Atlanta reading this?

    You had better to buy 5dB gain antenna model GP-1090.

    wow! maybe it's really because of that! would be nice to know where else I can get it but I suspect it is no longer available. I'll just stick to my PCB antennas for now.

    Lucky u... I did want to get that antenna too but it is no longer for sell. I liked the small size of it compared to a 1.5m omni.

    I'm glad to see coverage here in the South really has improved. Several new transmitters in GA and SC gives excellent coverage of Boeing testflights, among others.

    I finally got my roof antenna up. My eldest came home to visit and he took the challenge. It turned out to be worse than I thought, but he got it done. :up:



    Also getting pretty good coverage now .. been seeing planes almost down to the coast (around 200nm) .. (I'm by the red dot)

    I just see a NET1-radar has been added in SC .. looks like he has limited range, though. But then we have 'the missing link' between KRDU and KGVL/KATL. Good news!

    Kinetics had messed up the order some, so I was missing a couple of adapters. Finally I have all the parts, and by replacing the table antenna with the BS1105 in the window, I can now see planes around 165nm to the southeast. I now cover all of Georgia (except the extreme south) and a big chunk of South Carolina. I expect this to improve when I get it up on the roof.

    I'd also like to commend US distributor ACS Wireless for their excellent customer service. They were extremely helpful with identifying and providing the missing parts.
