Hi Dec

Great to see another member in the Dublin area. I seen your screenshots and You're getting great coverage, especially north west of Dublin.

I'm 6.1 miles SW of the centre line of 10/28 EIDW.

I'm looking forward to enhanced coverage

Best regards

Dub33

Hi Dub33,

I guess we both have EIDW Very well covered, I just sold my SBS-1 so I'm in the process of getting a new antenna, I think i'll try get something a little special, as I was using an extended whip on the SBS-1 with a pre-amp and had excellent coverage.

Regards

Hi Dec

I'm in the process of upgrading my antennae as well. I'm getting between 35 - 60 flights in "my flights", depending on the time of the day..

I had looked at the ML&S web site, however, AirNav mentioned they were in the process of rolling out a special antennae kit for the ANRB, so i decided to wait and see.

That was back in Jan.08, I'll give it a another week, and if no sign of it by 01/03/08, I intend reverting to ML&S. However, all suggestions are more than welcome.

Another member on thos forum, I think it was "Piper Pilot"suggested using a high Gain whip, without the pre-amp.

Regards

I am in the same boat, i am waiting for the airnav aerial to increase my coverage. Im in Sligo in the northwest of Ireland and i get a lot of flights over head but because of the position of my aerial (on the gutter) i lose them when they head for the Atlantic.

Hopefully we wont have to long to wait for the aerial upgrade and V1.4

Hi Dub33,

I've found a few antenna on the net, might be worth a look, i'll post links later,
I have a discone its a few years old that itself might be worth a try if I change the coax and connector on it, get some new low loss for it.

Regards

Hi JohnnyB,

Thanks for the welcome,
Shame your loosing flights as they head for the atlantic,  I'm sure if a new antenna improves your situation we'll all be in for a feast as transatlantic flights come and go,

Kind regards

Hi guys,

here are some links to new antenna, seems to be a few on ebay, not sure if they would be an improvement or not, however i might just splash out and take a chance on one or another,
if i do i will report back with results.

Cheers Dec

Much appreciated.

I noticed you're getting EIDW aircraft right down onto the runway and taxiways, excellent stuff. I was only getting it down to circa 320 ft.

Hi Dub33,

I have to admit that I find aircraft on the ground at EIDW was so much better when I was using the SBS-1, the amount of traffic was like rush hour on the M50, it was great, but now with the RB I reckon I could be getting less than 50% ground movements than before.

But I'm sure it has a lot to do with the antenna supplied with the RB.
I guess I'd better get my skates on with buying a new antenna.

kind regards
