Hi everyone,

Due to overwhelming demand for the FlightAware Pro Stick, we're having inventory problems at some retailers. We're manufacturing thousands more and are working to improve availability around the world.

Amazon Canada - available now
Amazon France - coming late August
Amazon Germany - available now
Amazon Italy - available now
Amazon Spain - coming late August
Amazon United Kingdom - available now
Amazon United States - available now
eBay Worldwide - available now

We expect it to be out of stock briefly in early April everywhere, spotty availability in mid-April, and readily availabile by late April.

FlightAware

You beat me to it. We're back in stock in Europe and will begin re-stocking distributors worldwide this Friday, hopefully back in stock everywhere around 4/15.

What is your setup like?
Do you have the FA Filter? You can connect it directly to the filter, just ensure that their is not too much strain on the connection.

If not, you will need some sort of adapter. You can get them from Amazon.com or ebay or even some electronic stores.
The Pro stick uses an SMA connector (be care not to confuse it with SMA-RP connectors. They have the same size threads, but the internal gender is opposite).

I need to know your setup. Is it s straight cable to the antenna or do you use a short pig-tail?
("normal dvbt stick " is quite varied. They can come with F, SMA and MCX connectors)

Most of the small antennas that I purchased have a combined SMA/MCX connector(like the adapter you have a link to above). You can pull off the MCX/SMA adapter to make it MCX.
The adapter you referenced should work for you.

Do you have a filter? If not, then you will need to reduce the gain for the pro-stick to about 45db to start. You may need to experiment with the levels to see what works best in your location.

IF you wanted to use that antenna you could use an adapter like this:

http://www.amazon.com/coaxial-coax-adad ... MCX+female

and here on German amazon. (I think this is in stock. My german is a little rusty.)
http://www.amazon.de/ADAPTOR-FEMALE-MCX ... o+SMA+male

EDIT: Adapter from german amazon linked in earlier post is cheaper and APPEARS to ship free. Again, bad german skills.
http://www.amazon.de/adaptare-Adaptare- ... op?ie=UTF8

THAT SAID:
the little antenna that came with the DBVT dongle is not very good. You can make a better performing antenna for almost free! I had great results with the cantenna before upgrading to the FA antenna. See this post:

Now I anxiously await availability in amazon. Crap, hurry up.
