Post by hamradionl » Mon Jan 13, 2020 2:58 pm

RTL-SDR L-band patch antenna using with dish and do some tuning.
North Europe in city area, using a 65 cm Dish on 2.0 meter above ground level.
Using this method in SDR# some AERO/ACARS will show signal levels up to 35 !

Just do your own experimenting to find out what working the best for you.

Good reception to you all
