    Your current settings are ok.

    You need to improve on antenna.
    - place antenna near a window so it can get more signal
    - place mag-mount whip antenna over a metallic plate or food can.

    Yes the antenna is the most important factor as written above.
    I'd recommend to shorten the whip antenna you are most likely using, it's described here:

    You can also update dump1090, newer version might work a little better:
