    Exactly what I’ve been looking for, thanks!

    You dont need more than 1 Pi + 1 dongle + 1 antenna to feed multiple sites. Brows this thread to find how to:

    Bake a Pi

    Awesome, thanks! I haven’t been able to find a data process “map” in all my searching.

    Happy New Year

    Looks like it. If their data source is all via TCP/IP and a port. Way to check would be pull the USB stick out 1 at a time. See what still goes

    Most tend to feed like that

    1 device,
    Chuck on Dump1090-FA/FlightAware feeder to the single receiver
    Then add to it to read the output.

    Here, I don't have DVBT but a beast USB. So I still need a decoder to read that data similar to dump1090

    On 1 single PI..

    Beast to USB port
    Beast-Splitter (software) to connect to USB and let lots attach
    And everything connects to beast splitter or others

    FR24feed - TCP from beast splitter
    FA - TCP from beast splitter
    ADsX - TCP from beast splitter
    aussieadsb from beast splitter
    SQL database / 30003 data to laptop via FR24feed

    Also runs PiHole, Nginx, POCSAG Pager decoding (using a DVBT stick)

    Code:
    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo netstat -lptn
    Active Internet connections (only servers)
    Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:30104 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2735/dump1090-fa
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:30154 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 17419/feed-adsbx
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:30004 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2735/dump1090-fa
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:30005 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 24725/beast-splitte
    tcp6 0 0 :::8754 :::* LISTEN 3564/fr24feed
    tcp6 0 0 :::30003 :::* LISTEN 3564/fr24feed
    tcp6 0 0 :::30004 :::* LISTEN 2735/dump1090-fa
    tcp6 0 0 :::30005 :::* LISTEN 24725/beast-splitte

    Oblivian- thanks for the quick response and feedback. For my own understanding, is Pi-1 (FA Pi) the “main source” of data and Pi-2 (FR24 & RB) are feeding to the respective sites from what they “see” from Pi-1?

    Thanks again!

    Looks as it should to me.

    Using a single Pi source rather than 2. You can also offload all the software onto a single one and have a totally spare 2nd

    FR24 will send command to feeder to ignore some HEX if well covered elsewhere. So may not upload ALL of them. This is where the Uploaded vs received difference comes from

    The dump1090/FA sky view, look right column - age. That's in seconds. They're not 'really' being received unless that remains '0'

    In that respect, feeders will only upload realtime stuff. Not aged.

    started a topic Combining FR24/RB/FA BEAST TCP

    Combining FR24/RB/FA BEAST TCP

    Ok, bear with me here...

    I have two RPis (Pi-1 uploading to FlightAware) and Pi-2 (feeding to FR24, and as of yesterday, RadarBox). These are separate devices with separate antennas. After reading several posts here, I wanted to try and feed RB on the FR24 Pi device. Originally, the FR24 RPi was configured to use the USB SDR. After reading, I changed the FR24 settings to be BEAST-TCP with local IP and tried to point the RB to it to share. In another post, I found how to see which ports were listening/receiving the different types of data. On my FA device, I found the data (I think) that’s being fed to FlightAware, so... I pointed my FR24 feed (and RB) to that ip and port in order upload to the respective feeds.

    With that, my question/statement is: I don’t know what I don’t know and is what I’m doing (or THINK I’m doing) accurate above? Screenshots from my devices and a simplistic visual representation of the above are below. I’ve read dozens of posts and looked all over the Internet but I just can’t find an answer to this. All three feeds show different numbers of aircraft at same time and I’m not certain what’s feeding what.

    TIA and Happy New Years!
