Why use a filter?
Tracking flights via ADS-B in dense urban areas has a unique set of challenges. Prime among them is the issue of interference. Trying to isolate a particular frequency range can be problematic since a lot of the out-of-band frequency gets picked up. AirNav’s first portable 1090MHz ADS-B filter is designed to solve this problem by significantly reducing interference and optimizing 1090 MHz ADS-B reception, while increasing tracking range.
Listed here are some of the features that make the RadarBox ADS-B Filter a great choice.
- Optimizes 1090 MHz ADS-B reception (Mode-S Filter).
- SMA Female to SMA Male.
- Reduces Noise/Interference significantly.
- Increase in Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR).
- Marked increase in receiver tracking range.
- Increased reception of number of Mode-S messages.
- Works with any ADS-B receiver with a SMA connector.
- Portable, compact and light-weight.
