    I am impressed! Looks like ChCh shares will continue to improve. Emirates have been a reliable customer.

    Hi Guys...I am a recent spotter who is both old and a bit thick. Everything I search on the forum comes back with "nothing found".
    Most of what you discuss is foreign to me, but as you are Kiwis I may get a response. We seem to be doing quite well don't we? I have a Raspberry pi radar station set up working with a home made dipole and am quite impressed with it,s performance.
    I suppose I am hooked because I have ordered a new aerial from Slovakia and a second Raspberry pi, The existing radar will get the new aerial (1.5 metres higher than the home made) and radar two will get the aerial. Now, how will I check on each radar? Will my up time be combined? Will both be called my existing T-NZNR8? Any comments would be appreciated, Probably put this question in the wrong part of the forum but will rely on the locals to help.

    If they are in the same building it may not be a problem, but traditionally you should email support for a 2nd key to prevent any errors or server deciding you send bad data and ignoring it.

    The alternate is use the same feeder from 1 and collate the sources with another application from the 2nd. But that gets tricky and can cuse data processing delays

    Welcome to the forum. We'll do anything to help a fellow Kiwi. Except lots of things like that New World ad!

    I guess you got it off ebay, can't remember the seller name and can't find it right now. Have got a few different ones from that seller, usually turn up quite quickly. Though last one was quite slow for some reason.

    I've got the FlightAware Band pass filter and ADS-B usb stick. Seem to give me better range and messages than just the standard TV dongle.

    Don't know... It did some real tight turns over the Hutt. I wondered if it was a calibration flight, but was in peak time...

    Thanks for that info. Have heard from support. Each station needs to be set up on a different Email address. Luckily I do have a second email.
