Dynon’s new dual band SV-ADSB-472 receives ADS-B traffic via 978 MHz (UAT) and 1090 MHz. In the US, it also receives free text and graphical weather from the FAA’s network of ADS-B ground stations. Unlike portable ADS-B receivers, SkyView and AF-5000 pilots receive FULL ADS-B and radar traffic when the SV-ADSB-472 is paired with their Mode-S transponder and SV-GPS-2020. The remote mounted receiver utilizes an externally mounted antenna for superior ADS-B reception. Doc, the much beloved and recently restored B-29, will make four national tour stops through the first half of the 2017 summer tour season. Doc’s Friends, Inc., the group operating the fully restored B-29 Boeing Superfortress, announced the first half of its tour plan, which includes stops in Ka
