For use as-is, or needs a separate ground plane?
I am used to mag mounts that you stick on a metal plate for a ground plane. If I buy this, can I prop it up against a wall and plug it in and that's that? Or for proper functioning does it require a separate ground plane? If so, how does that work?
  • This can be used as-is. No ground plane required.

Weight? Also a Q about indoor range
How heavy is this antenna? I would be wanting to mount it inside, simply placing it in a windowsill or something. I am getting about 120 miles range from a simple 1/4 wave 1090 antenna which is raised in my widow on a 15cm steel plate for a ground plane. Would this FlightAware antenna give me better performance similarly indoors? If so, how much more effective do you think it would be?
  • The antenna (including mounting hardware) weighs ~375g

    Line of sight range outside is ~250 miles. As for the range when placed inside, this would be much harder to say. I would imagine the range would be better than 120 miles, but it really depends on how much "stuff" is between the antenna, and what that "stuff" is made of.

What cable is suited for this?
What cable is used between this antenna and the FlightAware Pro Stick Plus ADS-B USB Receiver?? Connectors etc. I've seen so many conflicting answers, thanks
Mag or Tripod Mopunt
Hi there, I purchased one of these aerials a while ago from you along with a connecting cable. It works extremely well with a Flightaware Dongle. I am thinking about buying another one for use when out and about for use on top of the car when parked up. Can you recommend a suitable Mag Mount or small tripod mount to use?

Longest cable length ?
Hi, what's the longest cable that can be used with this antenna as I need approximately 20 metres. Do I require an amplifier as well ? Please advise.
