    Yeah ok - similar but I've got burst off. I'll let it run for a couple of days and see.

    Adaptive Gain - pegs at 60dB?

    Hi all!

    Thanks for everything you do to help on this forum - it has been a wealth of knowledge getting everything setup. I've managed to expand from 40nm to 75nm just with the tips in here and looking for more gains (heh).

    I installed graph1090, and noticed that dB seems to be pegged at 59dB. Is this typical?

    hardware
    - RTL-SDR V3
    - A3 ADS-B antenna from jetvision (+5Bi)
