    Hi! I updated my antenna with a foam covered spider (the one @abcd567 showed above).
    I also bought a blue Flightaware stick.
    Well, this setup made a huuuuge improvement over the one i used so far (a simple generic stick and a modded whip antenna, the one you have to cut to match the frequency).

    This little antenna was a real suriprise
    150-180 messages per second and almost a doubled range over the old setup.
    I guess the final step is to put the spidy on the roof. Currently is outside on the balcony as the previous one.
    Anybody used that grey pvc pipes?
    They look ok to put the cable inside and leave only the spider outside on top.

    It will be OK as the spider itself is outside the pipe, hence the grey pipe's RF attenuation wont affect the performance of Spider.
