To receive EGNOS signals an EGNOS compatible receiver is required There are many receivers now already on the market from a variety of manufacturers.
An EGNOS receiver is like a GPS receiver but with special software inside that allows the receiver to lock onto the code used by the EGNOS satellites and compute the EGNOS corrections to the GPS signals. Apart from this, an EGNOS receiver is just like a GPS receiver. This means that it can pick up GPS signals as well. An EGNOS receiver is the same size as a GPS receiver and uses the same type of antenna.
To test the EGNOS receiver, special prototypes have been developed with extensive capabilities to log and analyze data.
