Christmas Raffle 2016
« on: December 15, 2016, 08:57:17 AM »
The Radarspotting Christmas Raffle 2016

I have two FlightAware Pro Stick Plus receivers as prizes. One to each of two winners.



The Pro Stick Plus was released a few weeks ago and should be "globally" available on Amazon by the end of December.

Based on the highly successful Pro Stick, the Plus version adds an in-built filter, removing the need to buy an external one.  Not everyone will need a filter which screens RF interference.

Feedback for both Pro Sticks has been phenomenal and many regard them as the best DVB-T SDR "dongles" for Mode-S message reception.  FlightAware sells the Pro Sticks at cost making them extremely good value compared to alternative products.
