    B-8205, Dassault Falcon 7X just pulled up outside our hangar on the Western at WN. USD 50 mil worth of biz jet, very nice ! Not much on Dr Google about it, looks like its only a couple of years old.

    NZAA12 is now online, sadly i'm in a bit of a valley, so coverage isn't that great. Located not far from Long Bay Beach.
    It's a Raspberry Pi with a USB DVB-T tuner - Pic1 Pic2 Pic3

    Welcome to the game. Over the last few days I have seen F-NZAA, T-NZAA2, T-NZAA4 and T-NZAA8 active in the Aucland area. T-NZAA8 is also fairly new which indicates that 9, 10 and 11 has come and gone within the last few months. I never saw them.

    Unless they are still there but you can't see them due to F- box activity...

    Yes of course, you are right. Except I do not 100 % buy into the dogma of F-receivers as the demon beasts. Yes, they are optimized and will often beat T-receivers, but other factors play a big part. As I mentioned other T-'s show up all the time especially T-NZAA2 and T-NZAA8. Unobstructed view to the targets seems to be much more important around Auckland.

    I've only seen myself (12) once so far, that was for a very low altitude flight out of North Shore. I held it until about Takapuna, then NZAA8 took over.

    Be hard to beat those 2. Very high locations (potentially the tower itself) and very high gain antennas. Seeing about 400nm out

    Location location location, the single most important factor followed by height.

    400nm.. wow. amazing. 250nm for me sometimes and I am happy hehe.
