    F-EGNX4 activated in East Midlands, United Kingdom

    This is me, activated last night

    12 miles south of EMA.

    Currently operating with the antenna in the loft space, if the rain holds off it will go on a 2m pole attached to the chimney tomorrow.

    With the antenna on a 2m pole and hanging out a Velux window I get 150-200nm north/east/south east. Hoping for better when properly mounted.



    Antenna now properly mounted. Getting really good range and now appearing in the "radar" tag in FR24 (not that the tag is an accurate one, however it's nice to get a mention). Seeing 100+ aicraft.

    Operating with a small antenna right now, but a nicer one is on order.
    Nice to see a neighbor! What type of antenna and setup are you using now?

    I'm F-KBTR1 and T-KBTR3(adjacent to your south) for my Pi feeder that I'm playing with on various antenna builds.

    I'm using the DVB-T stick with a PC. Right now I'm just using the small antenna that came with it in a window of the second story of my house. Though I'm obviously missing quite a bit of traffic on the side of the antenna being blocked by the building, I was surprised how far I could see in the other direction at times with that small antenna (and even in the directions blocked by various obstructions).

    That motivated me to get a nicer antenna, which I plan to install outside and hopefully get even better coverage in all directions.

    Whoever our northern counterpart is in Tupelo seems to be able to cover pretty much all of MS and AL and most of TN, AR, and LA. So right now I'm mostly just serving to capture planes below the level my neighbors can see. Unfortunately right now the only routine flight in/out of JAN with ADS-B is a UPS flight to SDF that takes off every night just after 10 PM and comes back every morning around 6 AM.

    Nice to meet you!

    As you've seen, you can be surprised at the range of those little way-off-freq-cut antennas, when I first got my dongle, I sat it next to a window, ground level, side of house, 1.5 metres away is a 6ft high fence, and a 6ft high gate 2 metres away, covered by high neighbours house 3 meters away, palm trees, in other directions with very little sky view, I had about 7nm range looking in that (west) direction, but, on the other side (east), with no view, I could get 40nm, only 50nm north and 10 south, to aircraft operating at or just below 10K feet, bit further obviously with higher altitude... a few weeks later, 10 metres RG6, a home made 6db coaxial colinear antenna stuffed into a pvc pipe about 4 metres AGL I get 140 plus nm all round, cover down to 900 feet at the local int airport about 45 km's away, extreme improvement, because of the mountainous terrain around me on the southern, western and northern arc, plus 80-90 feet high wall of forestry on the east-SE arc, and my not so high AMSL, I probably couldnt get much better, short of scaring my neighbours with a 30ft mast - or moving

    Awesome. I've noticed a few flights through there, the one off privates and such that were flying too low for KTUP to pick up. Any little bit helps! What kind of antenna do you have on order?

    I noticed this morning that a new feed went up in Beaumont and the MLAT coverage picked up quite a bit there. Have you put in your application for your area for the free equipment? I think if they would accept it might add a bit of MLAT coverage as well there.

    I'm fairly tech dumb so I just ordered the PCB-1090-MCX "Diapason" recommended at the bottom of the DVB-T Stick instruction page. I was going to get a new idea of my coverage before applying for the nicer equipment. I saw that new one in BPT as well and the increased MLAT coverage. It would be nice to fill in some more of that around here.

    Is that the one with a 3m / 10ft feed cable ... that may be a bit short [affecting the position of the next piece of equipment] bearing in mind that ideally you place the antenna above roof / chimney height.
