I’m looking to build a new system, one that’s going to be located not too far away from me, in a good, high position with a clear view to the horizon in every direction. I have a commercial colinear and am trying to decide which receiver/preamp/filter combo to buy.
The aim is to use the Uputronics 1090MHz ADS-B Filtered Preamp (ceramic filter version) but I’m undecided on which dongle to use. As I’ll be running an external preamp/filter, is there any point getting the Prostick or Prostick Plus or am I better off with a standard RTL-SDR dongle?
There will be practically no coax involved, the Pi, receiver and filter/amplifier will be mounted at the base of the aerial.
Or are there better suggestions? I’m in the UK so anything suggested needs to be readily available here.
My two current receivers sit in the top ten in the UK and I want this one to outperform them.
