    @Ronny Jonckers:

    Hope you new coaxial collinear will give you better results.

    While trying to make a collinear antenna, it is always good to have another antenna as reference or benchmark for comparison. A Cantenna is a good reference antenna and is very easy to make. What you need is an empty beer or pepsi can and a F barrel connector. See this post on how to make it:

    After precise adjustment my coco I stretch the range from 81nm to 141nm 141nm.jpg
    The cable im used is the 75 Ohm 707CRT2. Total height antenna (roof top) is 6 meters.
    I made eight pieces of 112.75 mm (1/2 wave).20160823_150433_HDR.jpg
    Next week I'm going to make a PCB antenna and hope to get a greater range,
    otherwise it remains the coco

    Today I went up to the roof where the antenna is installed for some maintenance. The antenna is a 12 segment co-co and I get around 180nm max range over 270 degrees of sight. Is made from RG6, duct tape, and zip ties to hold the segments in place.

    1. the whole week around 140 nm with my coco and now suddenly 195nm without changing anything… How do you explain that
    2. Coco with LNA4all but without filter gives more bad result than the coco without LNA.
    I'm still waiting for the filter, that's for next week (Flightaware filter from Ebay) also the experiment with the PCB antenna (which is almost ready)...

    The receiver, Raspi and power supply:
    Attachment 7351
    The almost finished unit:
    Attachment 7352

    It will be tested for a week or two just outside on the balcony.

    Then it will get onto the roof.
    I'll post the diagrams then.
    Wehre did you get this outdoor box? I am buidling new radar and I need box exactly like this...

    This is a Weatherproof Junction Box. Depending on the location you'll place it make sure it is fit for your weather conditions.

    Hey everyone, after sometime and a new feeder I decided to build a more "pro" case for my feeders since they stay in the roof! The antennas remain the same, one FA Antenna, one CanTenna and one dongle antenna!

    Yes I currently have waterproof box, but for my next radar I want something smaller with antenna connection on side and rj45 on other side (so exactly like one on picture) and was not able to find shop where to buy it.

    My current POE box looks like this:

    Looks good!
    Care to give some more details about your setup? (height, range .etc..etc..)

    Does the FA feeder come with an LCD?

    Hey, thank you!
    No, no problem! Well, the first one is a Pi 2 with a normal isdb-t stick and a cheap antenna from AliExpress, this one I never did the range plot, but soon I'll change de antenna! The middle one is one Pi B+ with the FlightAware Pro Stick (without case because the heat) and a CanTenna that i made following the tutorial that are here in the forum by @abcd567, this one I did the range plot (photo bellow) and is pretty good for a home-made antenna! And the last one are the new FA Feeder, the Orange Box, which is a Pi 3 with the Pro Stick and come with a LCD where you can setup the gain, backlight, reboot and see the status, this one is with the FA antenna and I received him last week (that is why I built this box) and so the Virtual Radar is doing the range plot right now, soon I'll have for compare, but I already can see that my range has increased! And the hub are a TP-Link with 8 ports, normal one!

    Each circle have 100km diameter!
