Impresive initiative indeed but unless it can be configured to pick up all the rest of the aircraft transponder squawking with non-ADSB Mode S, Mode C and also Mode A, which makes up the majority of GA aircraft, I can't see how it is a way forward.
A step in the right direction would be the ability to see Flarm traffic, but until/unless Flarm stops encrypting their data, this will not be possible. Sign up to this petition to encourage Flarm to change their policy.

more pilotaware awesomeness

screen shots from the most recent test, showing 30km+ range, flight IDs and proximity warning.

404B19 is another pilotaware unit, we just happened to catch the G-RVAH as well thru ADS-B pick up.

Question if the aircraft had a compliant ADS-B system but no STC, if it was to be switch on and transmitting.

1. How does anybody know there is no STC.
Does it transmit a code saying certified.

2. What offence has been committed.

3. Who brings the charges and on what grounds.

I can see it in court My Lud it was a heavy traffic area and I was very concerned as low visibility so I switched it on for safety, so I plead not guilt.

That would be interesting and I think the anti EU press would be very interest in an organisation that was anti safety. Plus does it go against your human rights on safety grounds.

Pilotaware now shipping. It's been quite a story.

Perhaps we should start spelling EAsA with a small s as safety has been dropped and replaced with, Screw them,

So if I have a panel mounted Garmin 496GPS and a Garmin 330 (non ES) is this unit my cheapest way to get ADS-B putting aside STC etc?

It will cost you around 900 - 1000 to upgrade your 330 to an ES.

Your GPS and a 330 ES will not transmit SIL = 0 so is you are flying a permit aircraft you can not play. Your cheapest option is to sell the 330 ASAP (before ADS-B becomes more widly known) and fit a Trig or similar. Again assumeing a permit aircraft.
