A friend of mine bought in AliExpress a US$11,00 arcade joystick and it was taxed in US$15,00...
    Brazilian customs are a pain in the neck. They charge importation duties at will and they also charge over the shipping and handling value. One can buy the same thing twice in a row and the importation fees will be different, for sure.

    @dudesjp why don't you build a quarter-wavelength ground plane antenna ? You can build one with a single BNC or N female connector and a few aluminum/copper rods. I used copper with heat shrink applied so the copper wouldn't get rusty. You can even use rigid 2.5 or 4 mm2 wire - those used on wall wiring in Brazil. PM me if you need any help.

    Cheers all,

    I have a raspberrypi3 and a flight aware dongle and I feed successfully to flight radar.
    Is it possible to install a second flight aware dongle in the raspberry and feed to flarm via OGM as well?

    Good question but did you mean OGN Receiver? Be careful overloading the power supply with 2 flightaware dongles. If these are different frequencies and different antenna specs, you're better off using two different Rpi's since they are so cheap. But if you are confident that there is no power issues it should not be a problem to run two flightaware dongles on a single Rpi.
