    Yup! Both are 1090 MHz ADS-B antennas.

    Because contractually one is not allowed to feed a provider (FlightAware) with data from another providers equipment (FlightRadar24).

    Using one antenna or receiver is against the T&C of the agreement.

    Flightradar don't allow you to feed data from their equipment to rival tracking services, this is very reasonable in my view as they own the hardware.
    If you want to feed flightaware or PlanePlotter then you have to provide your own equipment, if you have your own hardware then you can use one reciever and antenna to feed as many tracking sites as you like (including FlightRadar24) but then you would only be a 'T' feeder not an 'F'.
    I cannot answer the separation question, however an easy test would be to install them progressively closer and see when the range starts to drop off, then post the results for us all to know.

    Greetings everyone,
    My question is, has anyone had any beneficial results from using a "Signal Booster" or "Amplifier" of some description?

    If yes, what make / model has been used and where was it purchased from?

    Regards and thanks in advance,
    Nigel
