    Tricky, have you called an airport to report drone activity? Di you call airport manager or a specific tower number? Just wondering how receptive they are. Also, what is compass value mod 1500??

    I've called the tower 2x, it's a medium sized airport, class D airspace. I got the direct phone # from one of the private jet outfits at the airport. Both times they were friendly, and didn't have an issue, even though I was within 3 miles of runway.
