    Mode-S Beast and associated equipment for sale (NZ)

    Hi all,

    Hopefully this is the right place to put this

    I have surplus to requirements the following items for sale;

    1 x Mode-S Beast with usb cable
    1 x BBB running Fr24 feeder and decodeadsb. This is fully set up with crontabs etc and works flawlessly. It does not have a case but does have a 230/240V power supply.
    1 x DPD antenna with mounting hardware and N female connector (you will need to supply antenna cable)
    1 x notch filter made by Guenter (the Mode-S Beast guru/designer/inventor)

    Happy to ship worldwide from New Zealand. As a guide the antenna cost about USD$60 to get here from the USA but the rest would be cheaper due to size.

    Looking for NZD$350 for the Beast, NZD$50 for the BBB, NZD$100 for the DPD antenna, NZD$40 for the filter (plus actual shipping costs on each) but I'm open to reasonable offers for the complete package - ask away with any questions.

    Cheers
    Colin

    Did you find the filter beneficial at all?

    I shall ask around the local guys I have got into tracking to double check also..

    (and thats cheap for a DPD!). Had mine down for the last few days with the storm we had, will be going back up again tonight however.

    The filter made a huge difference to my message count and range. My previous house was only about 500m line of sight from the Welly airport VOR/radio site - not sure about cellphone or other interference though.

    Not sure if my message count is impacted much. But know signal use to be a bit rubbish at the old place with a 900/1200 cellsite on the top of QE2 stadium within direct sight. Hmm

    I am interested in the filter myself. What are the dimensions?? I'd like to estimate the shipping costs to Mexico. Let me know if you're interested.

    The filter is 28cm long x 10cm wide x 4cm deep

    It weighs about 500 grams, I will need to find an estimated quote from the post office

    Payment would be via Paypal if you decided to purchase.
