Title: RadarBox Worldwide Installation Photos
Post by: AirNav Development on November 29, 2012, 10:08:04 pm
With this new topic we intend to share photos of RadarBox installation photos all over the world.
With the constant growth of our network we are adding on a weekly basis new stations, sometimes in remote stations covering areas where aircraft were not tracked before.

Feel free to tell us more about your RadarBox installation in this topic and share some photos with our other users.

Below we share photos of RadarBox brand new reception station located in Faial Island, Azores, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. We recorded flights almost 400 NM away from the station location and because of it we've significantly improved our coverage of the Central Atlantic (flights from Southern Europe to the US and from all Europe to the Caribbean).

Hope you enjoy it.

Title: My Setup and My Quest!
Post by: CYYZGUY on December 06, 2012, 05:02:37 pm
A few years ago, when I purchased my airnav radarbox, my quest was to get my antenna as high as possible for the best possible range!  I am only a few km's away from Canada's larges airport (CYYZ) Toronto Pearson International.  After years, I finally struck a deal with my landlord and he allowed me to put my ADS-B antenna on the Roof of my apartment.  It is now sitting pretty at 115Ft (35 Meters)  I have a clear range of 300 Nm, with spikes approaching 400 Nm.  I find it truly amazing, looking out the window at the approach to CYYZ and following the planes to touchdown on Airnav.  Now I get amazing ground returns as well.

Below are the pictures of my setup!

Here is my installation photos from my location Motala, Sweden.

The high antenna is a WiMo GP-1090 with pre-amplifier AS-1090 with AS-1090BT and Ecoflex-10 (10m+1m) cables.
The lower antenna is a Diamond D-777 for ACARS and listening on ATC/Fighter Control frequencies.

I see around 240nm in the west/east direction and approx 150-200nm in the north/south direction.
I'm covering the southern part of Sweden, parts of Norway, Denmark and the Baltic Sea.

Hi Forum

here is my station at the German - Swiss Border. I Try to find out where military aircraft are that do not have ADS-B by switching between antennas using 2 independent Radar Boxes and 5 antennas. It`s a lot of fun.................. but you never really know.

Greetings

Rolf

Hi Forum,

My new pole with the new FLU-SR/Y13 antenna. Playing with antennas is one part of the hobby. The installation is receiving signals from up to 156 NM. From Waldshut-Tiengen in Germany to Trento in Italy. The next step would be to move the mountains.

Greetings Rolf

Hi Guys,

here are 2 pics of my final setup in Rethymnon, Greece (PGANRB300799). On the left is my Diamond F-23 antenna (2M TX/RX), then I have a Diamond D-777 antenna (Civil and Military Air-band Base RX) antenna and finally the AirNav MODE-S/ADSB antenna. Right now I am getting excellent results, except towards the south. After testing various setups I came to the conclusion, that the high mountains are to blame ;-)
