I'm on the floodplain (so in the valley) and can pick-up aircraft on the taxiway from the disused ATC tower and runway for most aircraft (light aircraft I lose just before the runway, lower power and smaller size).

Yes, using VRS as Plane Plotter has been a pain to use (drops all streams for no reason at all).

Sadly my FR24 box changed IP (due to the router having changes made due to NBN issues) while I was out of town, so it didn't log from Friday evening though til Sunday evening. My RPi did log but range with it on a home built antenna isn't great.
Flightradar24 feeder (F-YSWG1 & T-YSWG2)
FlightAware feeder (YSWG/6482)
Range: F-YSWG1 (light grey opacity) - T-YSWG2/6482 (dark opacity)
