  • Newbie question

    Hello!

    I received a NooElec R820T SDR & DVB-T unit. I cannot find the email that corresponds with this, and there no instructions in the package. Can anybody tell me where to find the installation manual?

    Thank you!

      I was sent a free unit. I have tried to activate, but I need some sort of code that was supposed to have been sent to me, but nobody seems to know what that is.

        I have replied to your same questions via Support so we're duplicating effort.

        The "instructions" are online in the link above. You need to complete the feeder Sign Up to get a sharing key. But you must receive at least two aircraft messages with positional data. Placing the DVB-T antenna so that it "sees" as much sky as possible will improve your chances of receiving two messages and completing the Sign Up.

        My DVB-T receiver gets 100 plus positional aircraft when connected to my external antenna. Using the supplied antenna on my desk, away from a window gets none or one at most.

        The same rule applies to all ADS-B receivers. The antenna location is critical as the aircraft messages are line of sight.

        If the antenna can't see much sky it won't receive enough messages.
