    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.
