Antenna connection matching


#1

If I have the flightaware 1090 antenna and I have the flightaware 1090 filter, can I use something like this to connect them:
amazon.com/C2G-Cables-Go-42 … 001GUOAW2/

Thanks!

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

Well caught :mrgreen:
Those were not my words, copy pasted from amazon page, and as is usual with copy-paste, did not notice it.

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