    Hi all, I am new to the forum as well as the aspect of flightradar. I have for long the problem regarding antenna. Just now I am free to check all posts in the forum and get some ideas what other mates use as for their equipment.

    Currently, I am using a USB stick and a TV fishbone antenna as my equipment, the coverage is not bad that can reach somewhere west of ZUH. However, the signal level is always weak I assume. Therefore, I am happy to discuss with more HKers and make a better coverage together.
    Have a look in the best antenna forum http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...1-best-antenna (sorry it's so long) - there are some very interesting tuned antenna designs in there by forum contributor abcd567 that are ideal for use inside high rise windows ... Look out for Franklin antennas.

    You may find the other model of Philip antenna in 華輝 located in Ap Liu Street...
    When I bought it, my purpose is just for watching TV...
    Maybe you can place your antenna much outside from Window to see if there is any improvement, like using tape to place it outside the wall, because line of sight is a important thing...
    This is what my set up in hostel...

    Microtony's DIY antenna looks to be placed outside to me...?

    There is some execllent stuff around p23 onwards of 'best antenna' thread http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...1-best-antenna by member abcd567 who is using antennas made from co-axial cable inside his apartment/office window to get a range of 400km ... worth a look

    North Borneo: If I do get a raspberry pi I will probably buy one more dongle and set it up at the other side of my home.

    Good idea Microtony. Let us know when that is done... then we will keep an eye on coverage for VHHH. There is an active PCB antenna on development/testing by F5ANN, might be released in the next few months. Small and discrete. http://f5ann.pagesperso-orange.fr/PC...nna/index.html
    Perhaps something to consider if you wanna try extending coverage. But I personally think you antenna looks good enough.

    Actually I just thinking what your location is before....How come you have a big coverage...
    just guessing the location is Cheung Chau, Lamma Island or even Mid Levels in Hong Kong Island...
    Actually are you Bowen's friend?
    As I know from hkadb group that F-VHHH1, T-VHHH3, T-VHHH5 is setting up by Bowen which have good coverage, so I just think you are Bowen's friend because of your coverage...

    If you have a good view with good antenna, you can receive plane signal up to 200nm far away easily...
    Actually I just setting up my small indoor TV antenna (not power supply one) bought from Ap Liu Street in CUHK hostel and can cover the plane lcoated in Shantou, sometimes Xiamen, max distance 235 nm...
    As the location is hostel, so please don't expect the radar will be setting up for a long period...
