  • Can't see any aircraft anymore?

    Hi,

    Sorry if this is the wrong area to post in. Please move it to the correct area if needed.

    Basically the power cable for the Raspberry Pi was accidentally pulled out. Plugged it back in and the Pi came back online without any problems. But ever since no planes are showing up on the dump1090 map and FlightRadar24 thinks its offline.

    I've ran the following commands:

    sudo service dump1090-mutability status
    sudo service fr24feed status

    Both say they are active. I've tried restarting the said services and the Pi itself again for good measure but no look. Can anyone shed any light on this and what log files I could look at to see where the problem is?

    Is the Mode-S receiver connected with an antenna?

      Yes, I've checked the connections on the antenna and all looks okay. Its only stopped since the unexpected power off. Before then data was all okay and being seen on the map.

        Seems the USB extension cable I decided to use so the power cable wouldn't easily come out was causing the problem. Maybe not providing enough power? So I've gone back to the normal cable and it's working.

          USB extension cables can reduce the power reaching the receiver.
