    What range does the WiMO cover? you may find its only 1-2dB at the required 1090mhz

    You can get surprising gain from a DIY colinear or simple omni before going the amp route. I made one from a welding rod and some plans online and it was quite capable of 140nm

    Afterall, pre-amp of noise is just more noise

    Thanks

    I think it's 5dB of 1070 - 1110 MHz. I'm picking up 100-150nm at present but I want to see if I can grab a bit more. I live on top of a hill in Wellington so have a good vantage point.

    I just had a very heavy C-130 using a KIW callsign fly over, followed 5 minutes later by a 757 again using KIW. Wonder where they're off to? It's a shame we don't have MLAT north of AKL - I've applied for an FR24 receiver, haven't heard back.

    Kia Ora Mattt,.

    yes I agree with you Matt.

    Regarding your reply, It could be quick,. or take a while,. Depending on the requirement of the location.
    As they get thousands of request,. for Recievers.

    The red aircraft,. My daughter in law was on going up to WRE,. And I had followed her from MAN (Manchester) UK
    to that point.
    Therefore we certainly do need Host in that area, and more Northerly.. AS MLAT requires four F-. Recievers to be seen on screen.

    Just one farther point,. When you get your package,. the Higher the Antenne,. the better the results..

    My existing antenna is up about as high as I can get it. I'm limited by terrain

    50nm range rings:

    I'm pretty sure there's still nothing in Taupo, but it'd be useful to have something up there with Sounds Air starting their PC-12 flights to Wellington on 2 June.

    From the list of receivers I have created there are no known ones in the Taupo area.

    Does any know if F-NZUK1 is still operating, as have not seen it for a very long time

    If you look at the Squawk code and it starts with 6xxx then the flight is a domestic military flight. If it starts like 02xx then it is destined for overseas somewhere, the majority of flights destined for the NZ oceanic airspace have a Squawk starting with 02xx and I've seen nothing yet that hasn't followed this trend so it's a good indication of domestic/international traffic.

    Inbound flights from overseas tend to have 1xxx from Australian airports and 4xxx from Nadi/SFO OCA's.

    Considering the purchase of an airband hand held scanner, so can listen in to ATC when out photographing planes, would like option of connecting to external antenna when at home. Any particular brands better than others. Your opinions much appreciated.

    Depends on your budget, Uniden has ranges of handheld scanner so you can pick one based on your budget.
