Pilots who fly through the terminal areas listed below can receive free cockpit traffic and weather information provided the aircraft is equipped with an automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) transmitter/receiver or transceiver and cockpit display for traffic information (CDTI). U.S. cities and airports currently included in the new service are Albany (ALB), Chicago (ORD and MDW), Columbus (CMH), Little Rock (LIT), Lubbock (LBB), Memphis (MEM), Milwaukee (MKE), Nashville (BNA) and Wilmington (ILN). Flight information service-broadcast (FIS-B), which provides pilots and flight crews with a cockpit display of aviation weather and aeronautical information via universal access transceiver (UAT) equipment on 978 MHz is not compatible with 109ES avionics.
