    BTW, whomever runs NZTU1 (or is it NZTU2?, can't remember... one of the Timaru stations anyway), the reach on that is very impressive!
    Both NZTU1 and NZTU2 are using DPD antennas bought from the US and in the case of TU1 I have LMR 400 coax cable with very low loss. Incidentally I am at 650 feet above sea level. I will post a few photos later today to show my setup if it is any help.

    This is my setup at 650 feet above sea level on the Geraldine Downs.

    Show / Describe your FR24 hardware

    This thread is intended to help newcomers and those starting out with aircraft tracking to get a feel of what DIY hardware modifications or additions can be used outside the usual basic kit items to extend or improve range.

    Please ask posters questions about their setup or for help in replicating some of these in the other thread here http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...cussion-Thread

    The intent is to keep this thread purely for pictures/information about feeders setups. And additions or changes over time to give new users a visual aid of what hardware is often being talked about in chat/posts/on the internet.

    Please use the following template:
