Just wanted to let you know that here in Russia we're not only invading foreign countries, shooting down passenger airplanes and making other evil world-occupating stuff (all according to impeccable western media, of course), but has some sort of hobbies too. This is the handmade avia-antenna located 22km from airport Tolmachevo without actual radio visibility to it. Nevertheless, the quality of recieving is very good, exept for the planes on the ground. I'd like to raise the height of it, but unfortuanely this makes matters worse because of the intermods from FM Broadcast stations.
Will try discone antenna with the higher mast though. So far you can listen to the traffic here: http://mtl2.liveatc.net/unnt
