Yeah that's the post I'm following, but with a bit more trying, I've put it down to the crappy antenna that comes with it, as certain parts of house allows partial or complete scans,

@mattrix Ah yes, of course :)

@nzphoneowner I have had no issues with Matt's instructions in Christchurch, pointing at Sugarloaf, but I am using our house roof antenna. I suspect you might not get far with the tiny little aerial that comes with the cheap USB dongles. I never tried using mine but would be surprised if it worked well.
