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.
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.
This was surprising because this antenna is considerably longer than the original, and some suggest that the length of the original antenna should actually be shortened for optimum frequency response. It could be that this longer antenna presents more cross-sectional area to capture 1090 MHz signals. Regardless of the theory behind it, this antenna “just works good” for ADS-B.
To be honest, I bought this antenna to experiment with, thinking I would have an extra base and connector. After installing it, I see no need for further experimentation.
