I’m currently using a NooElec NESDR Smart v4 SDR with ADS-B Dual 978 MHz + 1090 MHz filter in front of it for 978MHz UAT, fed from a 1/4 wave ground plane via 10ft of FSJ1-50
Does anybody have comparative specs (sensitivity and Noise Figure) for both this NooElec dongle and the FlightAware Pro (orange) ?
I plan to improve my 978 MHz UAT reception and debating what would be the best ‘bang for the buck’ out of:
- RF Dongle upgrade
- Antenna Upgrade (just about anything would be an improvement !)
- Improved filtering (strong 850MHz cell signals in the area)
