Active ADS-B Antenna now for Sale

February 14, 2014 admin

Last year in November we ran a post about an active PCB based ADS-B antenna which was used with the RTL-SDR.

The antenna was created by F5ANN, and he used his active antenna together with an RTL-SDR dongle, the RTL1090 ADS-B decoding software and PlanePlotter, and was able to receive 194 simultaneous aircraft signals with a message rate of 556 messages a second at distances of up to 250 nm.

This antenna can now be bought from the 1090mhz.com webstore, and is available with or without LNA. The LNA will help if you need long runs of coaxial cable between the antenna and RTL-SDR.
