So far, they have not affected the ADSB Home Receivers that report to them... I hope they keep the free accounts for the ones of us who provide the data.

Seems to be good news... I agree with sparkie24. I have been providing home receiver information for over 2 years and would like to continue participation!

I just got a 2nd receiver, but have not plugged it in yet. Want to set it up for the 760 (or what ever the new Frequency is) and get that working. Mine has been running for about 6 years now with minimal problems... (Of all things a "Wood Pecker" Pecked a hole into my Coax and was causing interference to my TV.... LOL, turns out he could not have chosen a better spot, Right hind the TV Antennas at "Exactly" 1/2 Wave length from the ADSB Antenna... A perfect Storm...

in reference to the "new frequency", I assume you mean 976MHz or have I missed something?

I really did miss something that time; the UAT frequency is 978MHz. How could I mess that up. (brain cells)

now this is pretty cool.
I use Flightaware on a regular bases and things like this is why I applauded the purchase. Money well spent. I think even systems like ARINC will benefit as well. Very exciting.

If you become an ADSB Feeder, the service is Free!

Presumably the price for FA Global Gold will go up 300 percent

Collins along with ARNIC, control the Global HF LDOC HF Network, ARINC via San Francisco and New York through area transmitters. Like Boeing who bought out smaller companies to lower supply cost, the energy field of an Aircraft OEM was altered and events occurred. With on screen display of traffic movements being controlled by a RadCom OEM, and the trend of public utilizing Jet Charter Companies for global transport moving away from their airline supply. Privacy will be an issue with many people not wanting or desiring such freedom of information being issued. Will bring a trend where on screen tracking of ATS Flights, will vanish. In the future if one wants to look at aircraft movement, one will have to a part of that flight or pay an exceptional user fee.

ARINC is also a Collins company.

Yes I know of that and left the link out of the comment. When a shop owner opens a business selling items X and is successful with that business, then sells up leaving an empty shop which is bought by another business who want to sell item Y, they will soon go out of business. The energy of the original OEM products when changes leads to an eventual downfall of the business. Boeing own Jeppesen, Go-Pro and other business, and look what happened to the Max 8.

Maybe it’s because I’m a basic user the site is full of bugs to the point you can’t use it
