Each month we send out complete ADS-B receiver kits that include an ADS-B receiver, antennas, and all necessary cabling to qualified hosts. You can apply to host one of our receivers or easily build your own.

April 2020 was a difficult month for new receiver activations due to COVID-19-related complications, but we were able to continue sending new receivers to well-qualified hosts. The receivers activated in April helped expand our coverage area in Australia, Argentina, Venezuela and Papua New Guinea. Our low-level coverage and MLAT coverage also increased in Canada and the United States.
