conencted to an "airspy mini" sdr dongle (99 bux, 6ish MHz bandwidth
very nice, rx only). It's a homebrew colinear made out of 11cm sticks of



The range circles are 20 miles each, red is 30,000ft+, purple is
20k-30k, dark green is 10-20k and light green is under 10k. From inside
the attic it can pretty much hear every takeoff and landing at oxford
but I lose planes into bradley under about 4000 feet.
