Ready Made:  There's no assembly necessary, or extra mounting parts needed.

Tuned for Mode-S / ADS-B: Each antenna is designed to be used for the ADS-B 1090 MHz ES (Extended Squitter) band, using any receiver capable of connecting an external antenna, such as: Dual XGPS series, FlightAware Pro Stick series, Garmin GDL 50 & 52 series, RadarBox receivers, and all Kinetic SBS and 1090 Puck Receivers. Can also be used with the RaspberryPI with Dump 1090 software/receivers. This antenna can also compliment a system setup for linking to an online virtual radar network, such as: ADS-B Exchange, PinkFroot's PlaneFinder.net or FlightAware. (Please note that we also have a version tuned for the less common 978 MHz UAT service.)

No Ground Plane Needed:  A metal ground plane is not needed with this design.

Enclosed Elements:  The actual antenna elements and feed point are sealed inside a UV resistant plastic radome. No need to worry about corrosion on the elements with this design. This design also helps control friction induced static, which can be created by wind and dust.

Weather Resistant:  Having the elements and feed point sealed in the radome allows the antenna to be very resistant to weather and other environmental damage. This antenna is strong enough to withstand an ice storm, and will also do well in a shoreline environment.

Brass Elements:  The inner elements are made from brass, which is a better element material than stainless steel.

Narrow Bandwidth:  The bandwidth for the antenna is fairly narrow, which can help to eliminate intermod problems from adjacent strong signals in urban areas.

High Quality N Connector:  Instead of the usual UHF connector that's included with most antennas, this antenna includes a 50 ohm female N connector, on the end of a small cable pigtail. N connectors are more water resistant and handle high frequencies better. Note: Due to the high frequency that these systems operate at, and the potential losses that can occur through cable, it is highly recommended that at least a full RG8 size coax cable be used, for significant lengths.

Includes Mounting Hardware:  Price includes mounting clamps to allow attaching the antenna to any standard 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" mounting mast.
