Great coverage, Cumulus. What type/height is your antenna?

Got to agree, great coverage.  I can only dream of getting 222 aircraft in My Flights!  I'm currently looking at 3 :(

Hi Tom,

The SSE-1090SJ MkII is at 120m a.m.s.l. High ground reduces the max range between 225-310 degs.

Peter,

Where have you got the antenna mounted? How high off the ground and is it well clear of any parallel walls?

A 4.5m pole on TK brackets puts the antenna at least 2m clear of our and all neighbouring roof lines and chimneys. I estimate it to be 22m off the ground.
