    Hi, David,
    concerning the preamp there is no reason why it should not work. It doesnt matter which kind of antenna it is, helix, horn, beam or DC-coupled. The only thing which might happen is, that you get a "black hole" around your position of some nm's because of the vertical angle and the amplyfied signals.

    For the tests the problem is that I need to shutdown my receiver for 1 or 2 days to get a fair result (and that I dont like (the shutdown)). I don't have a spare receiver.
    cu Karl

    If somebody is looking for simply replacing his ADS-B rubber antenna against something waterproofed should take this into consideration:

    cheap and waterproof, (BNC should be replaced)

    Hi Karl,

    Ive removed 4 weak links on the Dipole,by removing the 4 Soldered
    connection on it., therefore instead of having a 5 element Dipole it
    is now a 1 element Dipole.
    The Soldered parts where weak and mechanically didnt last long and
    after the 4th time of Soldering them I was annoyed with them.,
    So I got me a complete lenght of all the elements plus coils together
    and bent the coils into it(with biro, vice and hammer)., therefore no
    Soldering except for connecting the Dipole to the Socket, Which of
    course is now the weakest point (Mechanically) of the antenne.

    Here it is.

    Running on my Win7 64bit computer, together with software for AIS and weatherstation.
    (AIS antenna you can spot on other side of house)

    The picture is taken towards SW and ideally we should have had the antenna somewhere
    up closer to the top..
