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 ;-)

Hi, first post here, thought it best to show my setup. Originally installed Piaware, then added RadarBox24 to duplicate coverage. Was having trouble with the receiver dongle, would lose sensitivity shortly after starting up, but adding heatsinks to the receiver chip and USB chip seems to have alleviated that issue.
Running about 100' LMR-400 feedline from the RPI dongle to the antenna which is up about 50' HAAT. The image shows the antenna beside the anemometer. This is a FlightAware 1090 antenna recently purchased through Amazon, and seems to work adequately. Note the parabolic antenna nearby; it does affect coverage to the WSW somewhat. It is required for our ISP for our internet service located about 10 mi away.
I also have a passband filter installed to help mitigate interference from the nearby ISP radio and local cell tower(s).

I've built an 8 element colinear antenna for 1090 since installing the storebought antenna, I might eventually switch antennas around to see how it works once we get a break in the weather. (blizzard here today).

Cheers from the center of Canada!

Always great to hear from you! Nice coverage at YYZ, busy place for sure.
Trying to get a few more feeders active on RB24 in this area, have one just north of Winnipeg now and hope to get a couple more up and running.
Cheeers!

In your screenshots above, how long in time is represented by the screenful of tracks in screenshot PP Station (3)?

Well, almost a year ago and before I've re-located my antenna (2-3 higher) and switched to a DPD Productions ADS-B Vertical Outdoor Base Antenna.
 
In march 2018 with old antenna setup it took about one day (24h) to build up the tracks like seen in the picture.

Today (on a busy friday) I get the same result within about 12to 18 hours.

Hi Ingo, certainly a good number of tracks.    After several years absence, I'll shortly be returning to the fold, with improved coverage as my antennas will be higher and in the clear.

Hi Guys,

This is my installation:
I have used a 3 meters pole mast 1" galvanized pipe for 4 antennas, 3 ADSB antennas (Xrange2, PF and FR24) and one D130J discone antenna.

The radars I have put inside an PVC box to protect from bugs and for aesthetic purposes.
The installation  have also an Ethernet switch with 5 ports and will have a small cooler fan to avoid overheating in the summer.

If you have some suggestion for the fan to use, I will appreciate that.

Best regards,
Manuel S.

P.S.- Please see the next post
