Kinetic Avionics and Basestation

Today I got to play with this nifty piece of Kit from Walt G6XBF its the Kinetic Avionics SBS-1 and it basically gives you a home Radar sytem for tracking Planes,..... this is not for the faint hearted but I managed to set up and get working within an hour or 2 of plugging it in

Installing the Basestation software was easy enough, its a very comprehensive package and easy to install operator logos plane IDs and the rest, I soon found myself tracking aircraft flying above me and also checking their altitudes "looking for near misses"..hihi....Amateur Radio is much much more then just calling CQ... if you can't get an answer move on and try something new
