Homemade ADS-B Filter

Reddit user BigReid has posted on the Reddit rtl-sdr forums his homemade bandpass filter with a pass range of 1-1.2GHz for improving adsb reception. A bandpass filter blocks any interference from signal frequencies outside of the pass range. This might be useful for adsb if you experience a lot of interference from out of band signals at 1090MHz.

His filter is a hairpin filter, which can easily be etched onto a PCB board. You can find the PCB schematic files linked on the post.
