Even though this 'can' be used freestanding, you should attach the magnetic base to a ferrous object such as a can of chili (Hormels seems to taste best and give the greatest reception) or soup or a car rooftop. This will help improve reception and is part of its design. The magnet is fairly strong and being such a small antenna it should stay attached even outdoors.
Its portability is great as you can easily carry this in a vehicle or hiking and set up an Android device for the ultimate in portability!
BTW, choosing an antenna isn't as important as location. Height is important as ADS-B has a line of sight reception. You can compute your range with the website heywhatsthat.com and enter your height above ground to get a good representation of what area you will cover. An antenna with a stronger gain may 'fill in the gaps' a bit better than the smaller antennas but wont increase your range too dramatically.
After reading through the discussions pages on FlightAware, I unscrewed the antenna from the base, and put on a 67mm piece of steel wire, instead.
I added six "spider legs" of steel wire at a 45° angle as a ground plane.
The range is dramatically improved over this stock antenna.
I tried adding the spider legs to this antenna, but the 67mm aerial works better than this 170mm aerial.
This is a cheap way to get a piece of cable, though. Mine arrived with a three meter cable instead of one meter.
The antenna seems to be fairly well tuned for 1090MHz and I am able to receive a good number of ADS-B transmissions with my Raspberry Pi set up to do Piaware duty.
