Better than I expected

Recommended

I have had the Stratus for a couple years and have never been impressed with the reception. One week, Three cross-country flights in bad weather, into this antenna and I am now impressed. Typically I would show 1 to 2 towers, now with the new external antenna I'm showing 8 to 10 towers in reception. This is a night and day difference for very little money. I was contemplating hooking it into an existing DME antenna but I decided to go for this antenna and I am very very pleased with the performance. My current flights of all been in the Midwest so I am interested to see what happens when I fly further west where there are fewer antennas.

more ADS-B towers !!!

Recommended

great, simple way to get your Stratus receiver out of the sun
and/or give it a view of the extra-terrestrials 'out there' when
mounting your Stratus ADS-B receiver isn't as easy as a glareshield or suction cup mount to a window - you will get 'better' ADS-B reception with this external antenna

Pros:
Antenna does improve ADS-B reception as advertised.
Cons:
Cost $$$

Flying in a C-172 or PA28 in Lower Alabama the best reception I would get was 1 tower intermittently at 3000' MSL. Now I receive 1-2 towers at 1500' MSL.

Been using the Stratus 2 for 18 months, it has been reliable enroute, it was while being vectored on approach (altitudes

Is this antenna only 978 or is it dual band? Since the 2S is dual band 1090 and 978, are you giving up 1090 ADS-B traffic by installing this?
Grant M on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Good question, I don't really know for certain and only used it for a little while and then installed the Aperaero ESG transponder to meet ADS-B out mandate. I would recommend you contact Appereo direct. I had a Q on my Sratus 2S and they responded very quickly.
If you purchase the antenna only and hide the Stratus, will the GPS no longer work?
Brad G on Dec 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Probably not. The GPS signal is actually weaker than the ADS-B signal, so if the Stratus is mounted under the panel or sitting on the floor it may not get GPS reception.
Can be installed this antenna outside of the plane, on top of the fuselage?
nincraft on Sep 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it is for suction cup use. You could wire Stratus into your existing transponder antenna - see an avionics shop for that.
What connector does the cable use to plug into the Stratus?
Kate G on Sep 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The connector that plugs in to Stratus is MS-151 and the part that screws in to the antenna is RP-SMA (reverse polarity SMA).
