Finally got around to having a bash at this, dug out an old RTL-SDR Dongle, put the FR24 Image on a SD card and popped it in to a spare Raspberry Pi2 I had here.
For the Aerial I built a simple "Cantenna" It's thrown up on a painters pole using some WF100, just trying it out.

Used a Aldi New Potato Tin, drilled a hole and soldered a F Type coupler, poked all the bits out of the middle so I am just left with a thread either side:

Got some WF100 and stripped it back, fitted a F Type as normal but leaving the dielectric over the centre core, trimmed to 69mm:

Used amalgamating tape on the F Type, then fitted the it to the can using a F Type slim tool;

Using some "Liquid Tape" I sealed up any holes on top of the "Cantenna"

Using a Dremel I cut the tin to 69mm, measuring from the top of the thread:

Using some hot melt glue I mounted the whole thing in a 100 Blank CDR Case:

Lashed it up on top of a telescopic painters pole to test:

Seems to be working :)

If you have set your location you can set range rings in the main prog & then click on menu on the browser then receiver range to get something like this:

Just 3D printed a bracket so I can fix it to my Telescopic Painters pole, INOX/Stainless screws were used :)

A nice variation on the usual colinears. Looks good too :)
Thank you :)

I will build a 1/2 wave and a 5/8th as well, see how they perform.
Just had to get something up today to get receiving, hadn't had chance to get around to it.
