    Sharer Rankings - Use a different Ranking Approach?

    My coverage area has been slowly getting smaller. Not sure why. Still see a lot of planes, since I'm close to the route from the EU into NYC, plus the Boston traffic. I used to see planes up in Canada and right down to NYC (during the winter, when the tree leaves aren't blocking).

    DPD ADS-B Vertical Outdoor Base Antenna

    I've got too many planes in too close.. Maybe desensitization is setting in.. No, it's the weather north and east.. Still very wet..

    DPD ADS-B Vertical Outdoor Base Antenna

    I just looked at the weather radar and there's a lot of rain to the north. Water absorbs microwaves. Heavy snow does the same thing. This Tidbits forecast looks awful wet for the next couple of weeks.. With some breaks.. I hope.. Tidbits

    DPD ADS-B Vertical Outdoor Base Antenna

    Wow, that's amazing range! We need that coverage north of me, since the very tall trees to my north are killing the signals from Canada. It looks like you and I have a pretty good over-lap area. I had considered moving my DPD up to the top of my mast, but instead decided to take down most of the...

    Static IP and other questions

    Your Max range can normally be improved by using a better antenna. But, if you are already using a good antenna, increasing it's height above any surrounding blockage might help some.. My antenna is blocked a little, and my Max range is about 180-200 miles. But, there is not 'standard range' of...

    Plane Finder Client 3.5

    Nice way to keep random processes from varying the AOS time. So, the New Year drinking is over. I suppose my rig will get a midnight upgrade to 3.5 soon..?. Have a great 2017, everyone! Rich<><

    Plane Finder Client 3.5

    Nice to know I'm getting a new more informative interface for the hardware.. Which is still running great. With the trees bare, I can see planes in Canada again.. :)

    MS804 ACARS data display

    This gives the impression that something happened to the window heaters (defroster-defogger) on the right side of the cockpit, before smoke was detected (or smoke sensors went off-line?) I think WHC is the window heater controller (#2).

    Gliders in Plane Finder

    I wonder if you could find a GMS 850 antenna? I see them for sale online. What are the TV bands in Norway? Maybe you could hook up to an existing TV antenna?
