As well as our own Radarspotting.com forum, there are others that offer help and advice on using Mode-S receivers and software.

Some are run by the receiver manufacturers or software providers.  Others are operated by enthusiasts.

Forums can be a good place to start evaluating the available receivers and software but be careful when asking direct questions.  The AirNav Systems forum doesn’t tolerate those who probe or question and many have found themselves banned from posting, either temporarily or indefinitely.
