Having recently been bit by the ADS-B bug, I have a working setup at my house. I’d like to add another site at a relative’s house, but I won’t have regular access to it, or much time to test when setup. The location has a Sprint cell tower about 500ft away, firing straight at the house. Sprint uses mostly 1900MHz and 2500-2600MHz, which are high up enough that the USB dongle I’m using shouldn’t be affected. Sprint also has service in the 800-900MHz range, and I’m concerned about that.
My planned setup is a homemade ground-plane antenna (http://www.atouk.com/wordpress/?wpdmdl=397), fed into a HABAmp (http://ava.upuaut.net/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=85), feeding a R820T2 USB SDR (http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00P2UOU72).
I know that the HABAmp has a nice SAW filter in it, but I’m still wondering if I can expect problems. Any opinions are appreciated.
