What is ADS-B

Automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) is a cooperative surveillance technique for air traffic control and related applications being developed as part of Next Generation Air Transportation System

Description

An ADS-B-equipped aircraft determines its own position using a global navigation satellite system and periodically broadcasts this position and other relevant information to potential ground stations and other aircraft with ADS-B-in equipment. ADS-B can be used over several different data link technologies, including Mode-S Extended Squitter (1090 ES), Universal Access Transceiver (978 MHz UAT), and VHF data link (VDL Mode 4).
ADS-B provides accurate information and frequent updates to airspace users and controllers, and hence supports improved use of airspace, reduced ceiling/visibility restrictions, improved surface surveillance, and enhanced safety, for example through conflict management.
Under ADS-B, a vehicle periodically broadcasts its own state vector and other information without knowing what other vehicles or entities might be receiving it, and without expectation of an acknowledgment or reply. ADS-B is automatic in the sense that no pilot or controller action is required for the information to be issued. It is dependent surveillance in the sense that the surveillance-type information so obtained depends on the suitable navigation and broadcast capability in the source vehicle.[3]
A similar solution is the Automatic Identification System (AIS), a system used by ships and Vessel Traffic Services.

Thank God someone put that info back on VW. I would never have got to sleep tonight thinking "I wonder what all them planes are doing just now?":eyebrows:

Well done VW..... Don't mind the knockers.. I've been known to track friends when they're flying,
and sometimes it freaks them out. HA!! HA!! there was a prob with tracking aircraft when flying low on approach to and from Tenerife, has this been sorted? Do you know?
(on the net I hasten to add)

Flightradar24.com now tends to have coverage down to a few hundred feet at TFS airport .

Emergency services can be interesting also. Back home,in the last few days, an Aer Corps helicopter (backing up air/sea rescue, and carrying a patient) crashed just
after take off. I think that all survived, and patient continued to hospital by ambulance. It was thought that they had hit electric cables, yet there seemed to be no damage to either rotors. Irish Aviation Authority accident investigation peeps were on the case immedately This would have made interesting listeing.

Yes, the air ambulance often have their own operations frequency too - located near to the ground ambulance channels i.e. in the 166 MHz band.

As you probably already know, a basic scanner that covers the air band 108 - 138 MHz band would normally cover the VHF band i.e. 138 - 172 MHz . Marine band is 156 - 162 MHz. Coastguard channel zero (156.00 is the primary Coastguard rescue channel)

There's a little bloke that lives in a tent near the airport called Abdul he's been asking for this information for ages it'll give him something else to do now other than cleaning his large tube thing.

Where is a good place to buy a radio that can pick up these type of frequencies and roughly how much would one cost ???

In the UK , Maplin will do scanners from about 70 .

eBay have a good selection of second hand units . Do NOT buy new 'scanners' off ebay for under 30 - these are not scanners (i.e. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OMEGA-Multiband-Radio-Scanner-AIRBAND-PB-WB-FM-TAXI-New-/120934819434?pt=UK_ConsumerElectronics_SpecialistR adioEquipment_SM&hash=item1c2846e66a) , but analogue tuning radios with very poor performance (badged as a scanner by deceptive ebay sellers) .

In Tenerife , some electronic shops sell scanners . Such as the shops near Parque Santiago 4/5 . The usual warnings apply to these shops - Google the make/cost before you buy.

This new scanner from eBay is ok for airband / marine band http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bearcat-EZI-33XLT-Radio-Scanner-Supplied-by-Nevada-UK-Bearcat-Distributor-/380448783108?pt=UK_ConsumerElectronics_SpecialistR adioEquipment_SM&hash=item589483bb04
