Im looking at getting a PC
/Radar system. There are 2 main ones on the market here in the UK. The SBS1 from Kinetic & the AirNav system.
What i need the system to do is the following. I live near LHR
and can see (from a distance) aircraft either landing or laking off from LHR
. I also get tons of traffic overhead. I want a system thats easy to set up (just plug into my PC
USB) that means i can get the reg/flight numbers for all these aircraft high above and in/out of LHR
Can anyone point me to what system is the best. I have looked on the web and seen screen shots etc etc. I like the AirNav system and like the format but looking at the screenshots it seems to show aircraft details for flights above a certain height , but nothing for the aircraft at a lower height either in or out of LHR
. Are aircraft on finals or departing from an airport not visable to the radar until they are above a certain height ???
Thanks in advance for any advise.
