The radarbox antenna is the long one, I see around 240nm in the west/east direction and approx 150-200nm in the north/south direction. :)

Since the pictures from July last year, I redid the antenna setup a while back and it now looks like this.

Amazing coverage - 501 aircraft in MyFlights is awesome!

On a good day I get about 70.

I'm getting between 530 and 578 as I type this. :)
I still appear to be quite deaf to the south and expected to get more to the north so I don't think my antenna is completely above the roof line.
Might have to think about getting a 16ft pole :)

500+ flight!!   That could be a new record for a RadarBox.

My normal best is around 45 and i was over the moon waiting at the ferry terminal in Portsmouth when I got 143 using the supplied antenna so over 500 is very good.
