    It appears that ZK-OJA is having a few issues getting on the ground in Queenstown, while other flights are holding

    I wonder if anyone here could advise me about a friends problem. He recently has had a serious drop in his acft contact according to the Flightaware stats. He has a very good Beast operating PlanePlotter and a AIS receiver picking up shipping. Both antennas are on his roof but I suspect too close together....about 3 metres apart. As they are different frequencies and only receiving we thought 3 metres sufficient. Perhaps we were wrong.

    If it's a drop with no other changes by him I would suggest checking aerial, cabling and connections first. I have had water in connections before with corrosion, due to bad design even though waterproof. I've also had an aerial not work as well over time which I never figured out the problem with it.

    Also new cell towers close by could potentially cause problems. Also heard of people with other electrical devices in their own house interfering.

    I run two radars with PI24s situated on my roof. The two anennas are only 4cm apart with no apparent affect. but who knows?

    Looks like some sort of complex rescue happening off Bay of Islands?

    Awesome. This for Airport based out at your place. Wonder if depending where you have it whether it will help with MLAT, though that is getting few a far between now these days. Commercial scheduled flights anyway. Wonder if you'll get F-NZWN1 back or get 4.

    Guessing there is no need for my location now Matt if that is going to cover the airport? I've got the bits now but have been away in Christchurch every week for the last 3 weeks so haven't had time.
