Look pretty similar, don’t they? And you need an additional filter, I guess.

(1) Yes, these scans are almost identical.

(2) I normally use FA external filter, but during comaparision test, I removed it. I get a bad reception without external filter as there are cell phone antennas of almost all cell/mobile companies of Canada on my building’s roof. GSM850 and GSM 950 are very strong even with interenal SAW filter of both the dongles, as you can see from the scans :angry::rage:

The uputronics has a MiniCircuits PSA4-5043+, ”supplied in a super small SC-70 (SOT-343) MSL 1 package.” You can say that again…

Received my RadarBox FlightStick yesterday. It took over a month to arrive. RadarBox was out of stock around the time I ordered it, late March early April.

After 24 hours of use, I think it was worth the $9.95 price. I noticed yesterday that it’s $14.95 now.

I got the radarbox flightstick is there anywhere where i can get information how i can get it to work on windows…

Regards Lino…

Just like any other rtl-sdr compatible dongle.

I believe airnav also offers some windows software but i’m not familiar with it.

Flightaware does not support feeding via Windows.
