  • No data from antenna?

    Hi,

    I installed fr24feed and dump1090 but no data is being collected. I am wondering if I have a config problem. What do I need to show you in order to find the problem with my raspberry Pi?

    This is the output, for “fr24feed” via SSH

      First stop running fr24feed, then issue the command to manually run it as superuser (i.e. with sudo at start of command), like this

      Code:
      sudo systemctl stop fr24feed   
      
      sudo fr24feed
      After test is finished, press Ctrl+C keys to break the running command, then restart fr24feed

      Code:
      sudo systemctl restart fr24feed

          Here are photos of the output. Anything wrong with it?

            You can't tell the true issues as you are connecting ro beast-tcp. The stick/receiver type may be the wrong type

            What is your stick? and installed dump1090 version?

            Stop them both and run rtl_test to find out

              My stick is a: Realtek RTL2838 DVB-T
              dump1090-fa 3.8.1

              I have stopped both services:

              fr24feed & dump1090-fa with: sudo service ____ stop

              When trying to run command rtl_test: command not found

              i suspect, that my DVB-T stick is not compatible (chipset)?

                The tuner may be wrong. You can still have a rtl chip, but if it has a fitpower tuner it won't find much.

                I can't remember what package is needed for rtl-test, but its missing is all that error is

                The other way is starting dump1090 in command line.

                Sudo dump1090-fa might do it, or need some device index included. But will show what it detects

                  Do you have package rtl-sdr installed?

                  Do this

                  Code:
                  sudo apt install rtl-sdr   
                  
                  sudo systemctl stop fr24feed dump1090-fa   
                  
                  rtl_test -t

                        Oh no! Let me step outside and crush this useless dongle. Thanks for your help with the investigation. Which DVB-T dongle / stick should I get? The one from flightaware?

                          It's not useless. Just cant get the frequency range for ADSB

                          Fitipower FC0012, 22 – 948.6 MHz

                          So you can still do UHF, airband voice or other thinks like data paging. Just not satellite or aviation based stuff

                            Any DVB-T dongle which has both these chips

                            RTL2832U & R820T2

                            Caution:
                            Do NOT purchase a dongle which mentions FC0012 or FC0013 or Fitipower
