    Philadelphia?

    I'm living in Portugal

    Why Philadelphia appears if I am thousands of miles?

    I dunno Its what I got from the database, things might have changed. Perhaps some other forum members can advise what they are seeing on the DB's they use.

    I reside in an area that has an antenna right next to me

    example:
    http://www.radioboanovafm.com.br/images/antena.jpg

    It may be or may be the nearest airport radar Lisbon

    Is there any problem in capturing signal with such an antenna on the side?

    Sometimes I feel some discomfort in the head with the dongle plugged

    Sounds like you are plugging the dongle into the wrong place it goes into your PC not your ear !
    Joking aside, the dongle cannot cause you any discomfort as it only receives, it does not transmit any kind of signal.

    That seems to be a FM radio mast.... it should not be able to interfere with signals at 1090 mHz.

    Edit: Looking at the antennas, seems like FM two way radio, repeaters and lower frequencies. Nothing close to ADS-B

    near the top would be ideal for your antenna.
