The Mode-S Beast close to Felixtowe

Finally I went on the late Sunday afternoon towards a good position close to Felixtowe (N 51° 58.577 E 001° 21.660). I had my antenna on top of the Zafira's open boot cover, about 2m above ground level. With just this I saw the highest frame rate ever on a single antenna by reaching sometimes 1050 frames per second (remember: pre-checked frames). But, we still saw some drawback into directions where we had the horizon covered by the houses of the village.

This picture shows the overall range up to a distance of 200nm. Remember that the antenna was just 2m above ground!

This is as we saw the traffic over London.

Note that the speed meter is showing above 1000 frames per second (pre-checked by CRC driver).
