Thanks Alan,

Has you know I have put a filter on the xrange2 but I don't see any increase of range, but maybe better mode-s message.

Best regards,
Manuel S.

The filter wont necessarily result in an increase in range but if it works will enable better messages.

I know but, because I have a cellphone tower nearby, the filter will help I hope.
On Discone antenna the filter as decrease the number of aircraft's tracked, I don't know why.

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 ;-)


How you get 420NM?
What is the setup from antenna to receiver?

Thanks.

Manuel S.

I see you are not set up for MLAT yet

run "apt-get update -y; apt-get install mlat-client -y; reboot" then setup the Lon and Lat in your station id profile and then will be MLAT ready
