    I expect to pickup more smaller aircraft (non-jets).

    The SBS-3 will only receive Mode-S data transmitted on 1090 MHz. That includes those that send positional data and those that do not.

    The US uniquely has 978 MHz UAT data but the SBS-3 doesn't handle this.

    The FR24 feeder software will only plot those that transmit positional data. So if you pick up a non-positional transmission on your SBS-3, the BaseStation software will show it in the aircraft list but cannot plot it on its map.

    The SDR part of the SBS-3 can receive ACARS messages which BaseStation can display in a rudimentary ACARS list but FR24 doesn't use this data.

    What about ADS-R and TIS-B support?

    TIS-B messages can be processed but they may be meaningless as the actual aircraft is hard to identify.

    As for ADS-R, you need to be located very close to the rebroadcasting ground station.
