    Following is the method for decoder & feeders installation for RPi with Raspbian Stretch or Buster.
    As Beaglebone Black has same CPU architecture (arm7) as RPi has, it should be OK for Beaglebone Black with a Debian Stretch or Buster based OS.

    STEP-1: Decoder installation
    You have to first install a decoder of your choice such as dump1090-mutability v 1.15~dev, or dump1090-fa, or ModeSDeco2 etc.



    STEP-2: Feeder installation
    • FR24 Feeder
      Code:
      sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - https://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"
      During configuration:
      Do NOT select Receiver "1 - DVBT Stick (USB)".
      Select "4 - ModeS Beast (USB/Network)".

    • Flightaware Feeder
      Code:
      wget http://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/files/packages/pool/piaware/p/piaware-support/piaware-repository_3.7.2_all.deb 
      
      sudo dpkg -i piaware-repository_3.7.2_all.deb 
      
      sudo apt-get update 
      
      sudo apt-get install piaware 
      
      sudo piaware-config allow-auto-updates yes 
      
      sudo piaware-config allow-manual-updates yes 
      
      ## If you already have a flightaware feeder id
      ## (replace xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx by actual feeder id)
      
      sudo piaware-config feeder-id xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx


    • Planefinder Feeder
      Code:
      wget http://client.planefinder.net/pfclient_4.1.1_armhf.deb 
      
      sudo dpkg -i pfclient_4.1.1_armhf.deb
      After installation of pfclient is completed, go to following address in your browser to complete sign-in/sign-up:

      http://IP-of-Pi:30053

      Choose following settings:
      Receiver data format = Beast
      IP address = 127.0.0.1
      Port number = 30005

    All I needed to hear. I went ahead and bought a green stick from Radarbox. Should have it by mid-november so will wait till then to continue fiddling with the beaglebone, I guess with that stick, setup should be very simple for all feeders. Thanks again for all your help, it really is priceless.

    Fully agree.
    I use both the Flightaware ProStick Plus (blue), and Radarbox24 FlightStick (green).

    The green one (RB) works OK without external filter

    The blue one (FA) works ok after I added an external filter.

    The reason is that in these two dongles, the SAW filter chip is located differently.

    RB FlightStick (green):
    RF in >> SAW filter >> LNA >> Generic dvbt

    FA ProStick Plus (blue):
    RF in >> LNA >> SAW filter >> Generic dvbt

    As a result the LNA of FA stick gets overloaded by Cell/Mobile signal, while the LNA of RB stick does not as the SAW has already removed the cell/mobile signals. Adding an external filter with FA stick eliminates overload of LNA.

    Because that's exactly what they want to avoid: Being fed basestation data.

    Code:
    sudo piaware-config receiver-type [rtlsdr, beast, radarcape, relay, other] (default is rtlsdr)
    
    sudo piaware-config receiver-host [hostname or IP]
    
    sudo piaware-config receiver-port [port number]
    Receiver Types

    RTL-SDR
    This is the traditional setup with a RTL-SDR dongle directly connected to the Pi. PiAware will connect to localhost:30005 for ADS-B data. Set "receiver-type" to "rtlsdr" and (on SD card image installs only) configure the other rtlsdr-* values if needed.

    SDR (UAT mode only)
    This is the traditional setup with a RLT-SDR dongle directly connected to the Pi for 978 UAT. PiAware will connect to localhost:30978 for 978 UAT data. See 978 UAT Settings section below for instructions to configure PiAware for UAT mode.

    Beast (SD card image installs only)
    This configures PiAware to talk to a Mode S Beast connected by USB directly to the Pi. Set "receiver-type" to "beast". No further configuration is needed.


    Radarcape (SD card image installs only)
    This configures PiAware to talk to a separate Radarcape over the network. Set "receiver-type" to "radarcape" and "radarcape-host" to the hostname or IP address of the Radarcape.

    External receiver - Relayed connection (SD card image installs only)
    This configures PiAware to talk to an external receiver or other ADS-B source over the network. The receiver needs to provide data in the Beast binary format over TCP. Set "receiver-type" to "relay" and "receiver-host" / "receiver-port" to the host/port to connect to. PiAware will establish a single TCP connection to the receiver and internally relay data to the local map display, faup1090 and mlat-client as needed.

    External receiver - Direct connection
    This configures PiAware to talk to an external receiver or other ADS-B source over the network. The receiver needs to provide data in the Beast binary format over TCP. Set "receiver-type" to "other" and "receiver-host" / "receiver-port" to the host/port to connect to. PiAware will establish multiple TCP connections to the receiver. It will not forward data to the local map display or the standard ports. It does nothing extra beyond consuming the data from an existing source and forwarding it to FlightAware. This option requires more network bandwidth than the "relayed connection" mode and doesn't arrange for the local map to be fed, but it will work on package installs. It can also be used to connect to a receiver running locally on the Pi that's not covered by the other options.

    The Pro Stick's just an SDR (receiver).

    You can use it however you wish and share data with anyone who provides suitable software to work with it. Not just FA.

    Is it this one?

    And, would I be able to feed anyone I want or just FA?

    Found this in an older post:

    You can use PUCK1090 with Pi.

    Use modesmixer2 to "read" Puck, then install FR24 feeder as avr-tcp and connect iz to modesmixer2.
    |

    So, maybe if I install modesmixer2 on the Pi and have it "translate" the Puck's data, I should be able to feed everyone?

    Using that thread I did manage to get PF to "listen" to the Puck by finding what port it was on (ttyUSB1). So, it works, BUT we have the issue that we need to "translate" the Puck's data to beast format, so that the other feeders can read it. Any threads I can research?

    And, does PiAware or dump1090 have a command-line setting where I could try and have it hear data from ttyUSB1 and see if MAYBE it works? I guess I could also try installing the FR24feeder as well as that does work with Basestation as I am currently using the other receiver and the VM to do it.

    Cheers.

    There would have been other software installed. To do data format conversions.

    The only sure fire way is producing beast format data. How one gets there varies.

    But a pro stick blue if you want to invest. A Chinese one if you don't. There is a dongle requirements post outlining the words to look out for

    Ok, so to get it straight, ditch the Puck and get a DVB-T dongle (can you recommend one?) and attach that to the Beaglebone and then try again? Something that works for everyone (FR24, FA, PF, ADSBEx, etc).

    and I'm not sure if you missed it earlier but flight aware does not support base station format.

    BeagleBone BLACK.
    Ok, so after a long day I installed a new antenna and managed to get the BeagleBone Black online with the latest debian etc, etc. When I first plugged it in, it was setup to get data from a Kinetic 1090 Puck and feed to Planefinder, it was working as I could see aircraft tracked on the list and being sent. I decided to flash it to a fresh version and get started from scratch. I chose to install PiAware first to see how it worked and 1090dump-fa and all was installed. PiAware site is online but, its not getting any data from the Puck so I know there is something missing, namely dump1090-fa getting data from the Puck. I know I am missing a step so if you can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

    BeagleBone BLACK
    Processor:
    TI AM3358 Sitara™ Processor, Based on ARM Cortex-A8 processor, Implements ARMv7-A 32-bit ISA

    Recommended OS :
    Debian 9.9 (Stretch) based.
    https://beagleboard.org/latest-images

    Above should make feeder installation process/software same as that for RPi.
