How to improve reception on your ground-based aviation radio

Apr 19, 2018

The first product Sporty’s ever sold was a receiver/scanner. The small radio allowed student pilots to listen to the interactions between air traffic controllers and airline pilots. By hearing these professionals speak on the radio, students could learn how to better communicate when they were flying.

ADS-B Out Questions

Jan 16, 2018

What's the difference between 1090 and 978?

You probably know by now that most airplanes will have to be equipped with ADS-B Out by January 1, 2020 in order to meet the FAA mandate.
