ADS-B data monitoring with a license

Unread post by dude5101 » Mon Mar 17, 2014 10:23 am


I have recently acquired a Restricted Radio License (Aviation) while completing my PPL. While completing the PPL I hear about and ADS-B data and would like to monitor ADS-B data myself.

I have read through the conditions of my license but cannot find any information pertaining to the legality of me, as a RRL holder, monitoring ADS-B data.

I monitor VHF Aviation Transmissions as is allowed by my license but can anyone advise if I can legally monitor ADS-B data, before I purchase equipment to start doing so.
