My honest review of the DPD Productions ADS-B Antenna
« on: May 05, 2011, 12:16:06 PM »
After waiting several weeks to receive the antenna from Dave at DPD, I finally got it and unpacked it.  As usual his packaging is superb and the box was sealed very well.  In a matter of minutes I attached it to my balcony, up 7 floors and ran the cable inside to the airnav box.

The Difference was noticeable right away.  Not only did I receive more aircraft...(Both Mode-S and ADS-B), the polar diagram started increasing in size right away.  My range was extended dramatically!  One thing I noticed was that the amount of ADS-B aircraft increased within the same range as I had before.  Meaning I was not picking up some ADS-B aircraft that were right under my nose.  Having it tuned to 1090 Mhz seems to be the key!
I also find that the movement of aircraft on my screen now seem more "fluid" as the signal is being received much stronger.

Highly recommended!

HI Jason I ordered one and I have to fully agree with you on all aspects; from the ease of ordering, delivery service, packaging, the construction and results. It's superb bit of kit.
