Product Description








This near field radio receiver is designed to receive all AM VHF
transmissions within its range. Even if you have no idea what frequency
your local air traffics signals are being transmitted on this Black Box
MkII will pick them up. Its perfect for air shows or at air ports as it
instantly receives airband signals - no tuning necessary. The earpiece
forms the antenna and the set includes a built in speaker. The squelch
control will reduce the amount of background noise in between signals
and a carefully designed multi staged filter is included to reduce
interference from strong signals.The Black Bok MkII can be used inside
aircraft cabins because the receiver doesnt use an internal oscillator
so its classified in the same category as an MP3 player. You can hear
the flight deck communications from the pilots in the cabin.

This item is completely useless. For anyone considering to purchase it , don't waste your money. Instead buy a proper Airband Scanner which will be guaranteed to work. This item is as much use as a crystal radio , and a crystal radio would probably function better than this garbage.

I bought the Black Box MKII about a year ago with the intention of using on board flights i take whilst on business. As an RF Engineer i appreciated the architecture used as a 20MHz channel receiver. I was impressed with the solid build quality and was looking forward to trying it out. When i got on my next flight at Heathrow I turned it on and expected to hear the control tower at 118.5MHz but heard absolutely nothing either from the pilot or the tower. It could pick up frequencies greater than around 121MHz but the unit is seriously desensitised below this. I suspect that the RF front end bandpass filter has not been correctly tuned and therefore i'm doubting that the unit was properly tested when it left the manufacturers.

A disappointing purchase.

It is rather poor. You can only hear outgoing messages from the cockpit, not incoming. The ATIS at Manchester blocked out anything else. Unless mine is faulty, I would not recommend this product. Also, there is no indication who makes it to complain.

I have been a radio amateur for nearly 50 years, and I have one of these black boxes, I found it quite useful albeit noisy with digital signs being being picked up which over ride the squelch in some cases.With careful tuning one can hear the strongest audio coming in and out but it is very sensitive and requires some knowledge of radio techniques and air traffic jargon.Definitely not for the beginner, and the filtering in the device is not brilliant.I had mine stolen out of my car so I hope who ever got it is happy with it.I certainly would not pay more than £20 for one,because I made one for £9. Ten years ago. The price is ridiculous.

While being near the airport, too much noise, I don't know what it is about and I don't catch all cnversations.
It must be better on a plane.
