Simple coat hanger Ground plane antenna for RTLSDR

I tried many antennas to experiment with RTLSDR and finally i am surprised with signal reception of coat hanger Ground Plane antenna especially reception of NOAA apt signals  (Weather Satellite Images).in overall  i think coat hanger GP antenna is the easy to make multiband (air band,marine band ..etc) antenna for RTLSDR.

but ads-b signal reception was very poor ,for ads-b decoding i think Coaxial colinear Antenna is the best (more info here,video tutorial).

Antenna setup

i don't no more technical stuff about antennas, My coat hanger GP antenna have 5 radials with 22 inch length each.(you can use different radial length ).The 4 radials are connected to a metal plate (make sure there is conductivity between all 4 radials & metal plate) and the center radial is wrapped with insulation tape and glued in the metal plate hole (make sure center  radial have no contact with metal plate or  with other 4 radials ) after that bend the 4 radials to 45 degree.

i used 75 ohm coax cable (rg6f) as feed line to dvb dongle and its is less than 5 meters long, center copper wire of coax is connected to the center radial and silver wires to the metal plate.

My setup for Decoding NOAA Weather Satellite Images .

Software used sdrsharp (RF gain 100% ,40~42khz bandwidth,90% AF gain,Sample Rate: 1,024 MSPS,audio sample rate: 48000)
Virtual Audio Cable(48000 sample rate output) to route the audio to WXtoImg

Here are few Noaa images decoded with RTLSDR and my coat hanger GP antenna.
