ADL180 ADS-B Antenna
Some details on the ADL180 suction cup ADS-B antenna
The ADL180 comes with a suction cup ADS-B antenna and an external amplifier as shown above.
It is important to place the ADS-B antenna in a more or less vertical position for example on the border of the windshield.
For good results the antenna should be at least 10cm to 15cm away from other electronics, also from the ADL180 itself.
If the external amplifier has to be used will depend a lot on the application. On some planes it will work just fine without the
amplifier while on other planes it can boost the reception quite a lot.
For reference the length of the suction cup antenna is about 15cm.
