Hi Dave I'm a7, based in Penryn i have the SBS1 box currently switching between the supplied antenna sitting on a window ledge and a D777 up on the chimney! hoping to get a proper 1090 antenna at some point soon though! i can get stuff going into culdrose down to about 700ft before i loose it!

Ah copy that. I'd forget switching to the D777 for anything SBS1 related as the D777 does not support the freq. Even getting your supplied SBS antenna as high as possible (like loft) would help.

Cheers

Looks like CU has a night visitor, noting ZD268 logging local and on ground.

More than likely, just trying to work out from where. Not picking up any UK Warships on AIS, but that does not mean one is not there !

There has been an RN Lynx parked and tethered on the Sea King pan since before lunch. Unsure of the serial though.

Nothing else recorded for this evening? I only ask because i am sure i heard the distinctive chop-chopping of a Chinook dropping in - around 18:50. Walking through an avenue of trees at the time, so couldn't spot a thing.

And anything yesterday evening (Mon 15.10)? I ask because at 9.15pm I was near the harbour at Porthleven when a jet came in from over the sea and turned as if to join runway 12 - an unusual approach. Only clues, 2 red starboard lights and sounding more like a Falcon 20 than a hawk.

Yep, i also heard and saw it, also assumed it to be a Falcon 20.

Malf, can't find any Chinook in logs, but would only be there if transmitting ModeS code. so never 100% sure.

There were two Falcon 20's around at 9-9:30 pm down our way Monday night G-FRAI & G-FRAD, so possible one of these, nothing else matches.

Nice one, Dave. Thank's - once again!
The Falcon 20 flew direct over my garden, so, as Bertieb says, an unusual approach to 12.

Today at 1330L I heard a helo wok-woking over Plymouth. I expected to see a Chinook, but was surprised when a AAC Bell 212 appeared transitting from the SW to NE at 1500ft approx. Whether this came from CU after a night-stop I don't know, just a thought as to what you heard :S
If not, if anybody has any info. on this it would be appreciated.
