Pro Stick Plus Features:

  • No MCX adapters required
  • No external amplifier required
  • Higher Performance for ADS-B and MLAT
  • Increases range 10-20% over Pro Stick when filtering is beneficial
  • SMA F connector for easy connectivity to the high-performance antenna
  • Native SMA connector yields reduced loss due to antenna cabling/adapters
  • Adds Built-in 1090 MHz filter with R820T2 SDR and RF Amplifier (USB powered)
  • A 1090 MHz bandpass filter (whether built-in or a separate external part) is generally recommended for users in urban environments or with known high-power radio transmitters nearby such as cell phone towers. Filtering is generally not recommended for users in rural environments. Filtering benefits may vary and are dependent on the installation location
