I imported one from the States - cost me £39 in total as Customs stung me for £11!

Unfortunately I'm struggling to get it to work (in spite of my Nooelec working fine) so: would anybody like to buy it from me if I fail completely?

Kind Regards

Hugh

**UPDATE** Just read this: http://flightaware.com/adsb/prostick/setup/ Everything up and running!

The stick is out of stock on Amazon.co.uk/.fr/.es/.it and .de.
New stock coming soon or?

EDIT: Oh, and maybe not really the right topic; I've seen somewhere there was also a longer/higher-gain antenna than the usual 66cm/5dB antenna. Is that one going to be sold (again) or?

We're having a problem with Amazon Europe, but you can buy all the parts here: http://stores.ebay.com/wifi-expert/Flig ... 8556731011

We had a much larger dual-frequency (978/1090) antenna for the US market, but there wasn't a lot of demand and it was significantly more expensive to manufacture/ship.

Hmm, to bad. Think the problem will continue for a long time? Because getting it to Europe from the US is a very costly affair (shipping costs).

Ah. Good to know.

We are out of stock in Europe right now. We are working on restocking but we are having some challenges supplying to Europe. I do not have an estimated date yet to restore availability in Europe.

A shame we can not get them direct from you in the US instead of awaiting delivery to an Amazon branch in Europe.

To provide a quick update. We are actively working on restoring supplies in Europe. The details involve intricacies of shipping/logistics, customs and EU regulations because the goods are originating from FlightAware with its primary place of business being in the USA. We have several options we are evaluating each with its own set of trade-offs. I apologize for the inconvenience. We would like to be selling directly in Europe again as soon as possible and will update this thread as soon as I can confirm good news.

Update on Amazon Europe availability: I'm expecting us to restore Pro Stick availability in Europe in approximately 4 weeks. I will update this thread as we get closer with more up to date timing as I have it. Thank you for your patience.

Awesome, I can't wait.
The FA filter is lonely at the moment :mrgreen: ...

EDIT @ 28 October: Not so awesome anymore knowing the new Pro Stick Plus is cheaper then the combination I need to have right now; with a still unavailable Pro Stick...

I see the Pro Stick is back in stock on Amazon.de.

But now the Pro Stick Plus is there. I already have the filter (bought it months ago thinking the Stick would be in stock quickly thereafter), but I'm not using it.

Should I just get the Pro Stick or should I wait for the Pro Stick Plus and discard the filter all together?

My statistics improved when I added the filter to the ProStick Plus.

It depends.

A 1090 MHz bandpass filter (whether built-in or a separate external part) is generally recommended for users in urban environments or with known high power radio transmitters nearby such as cell phone towers. Filtering is generally not recommended for users in rural environments. Filtering benefits may vary and are dependent on the installation location.

So if you have the external filter, buy the Pro Stick. If you find out you need the filter, great, if not, just leave it out. If you buy the Pro Plus, you are stuck with an inbuilt filter. In your case, that would be the second filter you owned, and you might end up buing the Pro Stick, too.

@Iemand91
I fully agree with biekerc.
Since you already have a filter, buy ProStick (orange), dont buy ProStick Plus. This will give you felexibility of configuration to suit your location.

Thanks for the replies guys!

Just bought myself the Pro Stick Orange. Estimated delivery is 17-20 December (Next Saturday till Tuesday).
Curious what effect this stick (in combination with or without the filter) will have on the results.
