Equipment taken down by Chinese Authorities

Hello folks! I just had the China National Security in my office and they took down all my ADS-B equipment with them. They were not sure what it was used for or it’s functionality but after I explained they told that they were not sure if it was legal and they had to confiscate.

They said someone saw the antennas and reported to them.

Is there any Chinese here that can send me a link in mandarin showing that such device is legal in China?

They said if it is actual legal they will return it to me.


This has been reported already several times in the ADS-B Flight Tracking subforum:
