More ADS-B (coverage)

I was inspired by Carl’s excellent Thursday presentation to look up a few online ADS-B resources regarding the FAA Ground Station transmitters. Here’s where the FAA says (interactive link at the bottom of this page) you’ll get ADS-B in reception (non-coverage shown in salmon color) at 500’AGL in the SouthWest region:

ADS-B Coverage at 500' SW

ADS-B Coverage at 500′ SW

In the hope they may be of interest or value to other members, below are some links.
