If I have the flightaware 1090 antenna and I have the flightaware 1090 filter, can I use something like this to connect them:

Looks OK in photo, but word WiFi in its description (N-Male to SMA-Male Wi-Fi Adapter) makes it doubtful as WiFi uses RP-SMA

Thanks, you two! I've ordered it and hopefully on Thursday my PiAware ADS-B will be up and running with its antenna!
