    • We had gale force 65k-100k winds the other night.. took my antenna down a few ft for safety. Appear as a feed less and less now, makes a difference heh

      Taught me I need to find a more sturdy pole, or chuck the ropes back up for a bit. But they would have been strung the wrong way for the NW wind anyway.

          Use a 32mm diameter stainless steel water pipe. They come in length of 5.7 metres

          • An article on Voxy about the MLAT sites.
            I have been watching what I assume to be a test of the new Mlat sites in the Southern area. A twin engine Piper, registered as an Aussie, at 12600 feet apparently aimlessly flying from place to place. It seemed to be about to fly directly over my antenna, but made a sharp turn away towards Timaru so I didn't get to see it. Seems the forerunner of ADsb , Mlat, is about to be used down here in the South. I just hope the Mlat sites don't all look like small acft as the one on Mt Studholme appears to be. Could be very confusing.

            • Easily fixed. Will get them to flag with a tower type and a different icon or hide it altogether.

              Was that VH-BUR? I think thats a legit visitor

                I am well thinking its a mobile or a Beacon,. Maybe something todo
                with the setting up of your MLAT there.
                It is West of Waimate,. and suspect on Mount Schudholme.
                (at least thats the name of the road that its on,..End of Mount Schudholme Road)

                  that'd be what we were just talking about getting changed to hidden/ignored, yes that is one of the towers

                            Just spotted VH-BUR doing the rounds.
                            It disappeared pretty much as soon as I took that screenshot.

                            • Funny with that tower. It is undecided if it is flying north or south.

                              Could it be from the antenna mast head swaying in the wind?

                              Anyway, from the article posted above on MLAT http://www.voxy.co.nz/business/surve...afety/5/167581 I understand that there are already 18 MLAT stations in place around Queenstown and the now they are adding 9 more.
                              So why does only this station have to transmit a ADS-B signal? My theory is that it is a temporary thing while the system is calibareted, using a known fixed position. Any thoughts?

                                It is a reference transponder. Typical MLAT system has one or two reference transponders for synchronization and monitoring of the whole system. http://web1.see.asso.fr/Jissa2005/fo...papers/2-1.pdf
