Upcoming patch l-band antenna

Post by Jekko » Mon Aug 26, 2019 11:06 pm

Hi there,
In one of the last posts of the blog i read that rtl-sdr will come out with a new l-band patch antenna and this is a great news.

The post says that the antenna will work from 1525 up to 1637 MHz.

It is a quite wide range for this band, but unfortunately aeroAmbe (voice from aeroAcars) are roughly in the 1646 to 1652 Mhz range.
Is it possible to modify the project of the antenna so that it could cover these frequencies too?

Thank you

It should still be able to cover those frequencies with a bit of attenuation. No guarantees, but if you're in a spot beam it could work. It's difficult to make it even wider band, but we'll see for future iterations.
