ADS-B Receiver as USB Dongle . The ideal starter device for ADS-B reception are our “Diamond Crown” or “RTL-SDR R820T2″ USB dongles.
Dongles only achieve a reduced range. For better reception we recommend our Air!Squitter.
Their integrated circuitry RTL2832 and R820T2 provides highest sensitivity together with optimum range for small ADS-B Receiver.
Our USB dongles (ADS-B receivers) can be operated together with Planeplotter or RTL1090 to receive ADS-B on 1090 MHz or even used as a universal SDR (software defined radio) in the frequency range of 24-1,700 MHz (frequency range not guaranteed).

We ship our dongles together with a small indoor antenna with MCX connector.
These ADS-B antenna is not suited for outdor use. For this purpose two different types of our high qualityOPA-5 or Diapason antennas are available dependant on required cable length.
IMPORTANT: each of our usb dongles was tested individually for full functionality and proper reception quality on 1090 MHz and together with RTL1090 and Planeplotter. See also rtl1090.com .
For SDR applications with a requirement of high frequency accuracy and stability we offer our RTL-SDR (not necessary for ADS-B reception). This device has a guaranteed frequency accuracy of +-0.5 ppm.
Our dongles are sold and shipped without remote control and without software for the reception of DVB-T and FM signals.
