  • Shows as "C130" that's the good old FR24 shotgun approach.

        Ha! Without actually realising what I was watching I saw this fly in this afternoon on my VRS screen while I was installing/moving around CCTV cameras... VRS shows it as Lynden Air Cargo, callsign is currently LYC405. It landed ~14:30 AEST. And has not taken off since..

        • Ok guys, not sure how many have been following the MLAT thread but there is a new version of fr24feed out now for the Pi feeders that does not require a special version of dump1090 to participate in MLAT positioning, it does not increase cpu load now either.

          All I did was update the package via apt-get as I have the beta repository, mv the dump1090 which the package installs to a different file name, then symlink the mutability version to the same spot in /usr/lib/fr24.. Then if you were already signed up to do the mlat stuff, just turn it back on in /etc/fr24feed.ini ... otherwise follow the process for signing up for the MLAT beta, it's all documented and discussed in the MLAT fr24feed thread..

          Cheers!

              Start looking for it soon/this weekend in Australia. It will show up as "C130" on the FR24 map.
              It's flying to Hawaii today.
              N405LC just departed Anchorage Intl (PANC) at 10:23 AKDT enroute to Kahului (PHOG/OGG) for an estimated arrival at 16:26 HST.
              Thanks Brian,

              'C130' landed today at RAAF Base Richmond (YSRI) northwest of Sydney (SYD/YSSY) at 00:32 UTC (10:32 local) using radio callsign 'N405' however from now on will be known as 'Bomber132' for ATC radio callsign purposes.

                • Well.... sat down this morning and took the leap of faith..... and gave myself some more grey hairs in the process....

                  Have changed over to dump1090-mutability, have installed the latest version of FR24 and FA ...... and everything seems to be co-habiting normally. From what I can see on my local view of dump1090 (port 8080) I don't appear to be feeding false MLAT from FA - thanks bhaal for the tip re stopping it. I had updated the FA feeder last night and didn't realise I was feeding bad MLAT until this morning when I noticed that SSM2 and SSM3 had lat/lon present !! arrgghh ....

                  Everyone, please let me know if I stuff up again and feed bad data!

                  Cheers,

                  Andrew

                      Doesn't say if its 50 or 75 ohm, sure it says DVT-B RTL's which implies 75 ohm, but I'd be making sure first, yes it will still work, but performance will be affected if you have a mismatch. The fact it has an "N" type conn, suggests 50 ohms.

                        Been thinking of getting it for the RPi, though cost is the key.

                            I reckon it'd still be cheaper than what my A3 cost, landed into the country ......

                              No worse than the A3 I have now, with it's N connector and SMA at the dongle end. one 50 to 75 transition ain't too bad, it's only if you get multiples.
