    Online since April 2015
    4 kms northeast of CYXE

    10 1/2 segment heliax collinear antenna (still indoors in 2 storey home)
    The antenna is based on member 1090mhz's superantenna design from his ads-b(dot)ca website (many thanks !!)
    R820T2-based RTL dongle
    Dump1090 on a Beaglebone Black
    Reliably 300km in most directions, 400+km to the west

    Been experimenting with a variety of antennae for a couple of years and with now getting reliable results, am actively working on filters to reduce the overloading from the three cell phone towers I can see from the window, and from one of the local FM stations

    Greetings from Victoria, BC

    I have a station now operating with up to 450 km (225 n mi) range to the SE and about 350 km to the west out over the Pacific Ocean. The antenna is a colinear on a 15 metre high tower on a hill facing south.

    Site is approximately 1/3rd of the way between C-YWH and C-YYJ. With C-YYJ over the hill to the north.

    Well that is impressive of FR24 to have a receiver up there! Resolute is one of Canada's northernmost communities and is also one of the coldest inhabited places in the world.

    Gets down to -52 C and their summer warm up makes it to only 7 C. Population is around 250.

    Here is Resolute, Canada

    Hi, Rick! Ross here, T-CYWH1 in Sooke. I can get only 75 NM at the best of times (to Seattle). 3 element co-linear indoors. I'm on a hillside; very close to a cliff that shadows me tothe west and surrounded by wet (finally!) trees and power lines.

    Hi Ross. I'm in Saanich near Beckwith Park.

    I found that moving the antenna higher and adding a bandpass filter gave me some huge improvements. I also added a low noise amplifier but it's impact was less pronounced. If you want to discuss this off-list drop me a note at my Ham Radio callsign (see signature block) at yahoo dot ca.

    Well today I received my FlightRadar24 receiver. As a result, T-CYWH3 is closed and F-CYWH1 is open for business.

    The new receiver is using the same antenna, bandpass filter and LNA.

    Good to have Resolute on the air. Big change in Aviation Navaids since I was there 52 years ago!
