  • Going to start feeding :) will any DVB-T USB device do?

    hey guys.

    Been a long time user of flight user and i've decided to apply for a antenna

    In the mean time.....

    Going to buy a Rasp PI and also a DVB-T USB stick......

    Will any one suffice?

    Thanks again and looking forward to sharing the data

    The DVB-T stick should have a R820T tuner for optimal performance for ADSB, which I believe is standard on most DVB-T sticks. Just ensure that the DVB-T stick does have a R820T tuner before purchasing.

      I use a NooElec NESDR Mini USB RTL-SDR, DVB-T & ADS-B Receiver Set, (Previously TV28T v2), RTL2832U & R820T Tuner, MCX Input. Low-Cost Software Defined Radio Compatible with Many SDR Software Packages. R820T Tuner & ESD-Safe Antenna

      Cost me under 20 very cheap so far I've tracked nearly 2000 air craft and only have been going less then a month. The tick is get your antenna high and away from buildings I changed the antenna abd position the antenna also sits on a 12f mast

      The stick works really well.

            hmmmm.....

            Incorrect configuration set. Check for:
            - Conflicting software locking USB device to 'in-use'
            - Missing zadig driver installation step for windows (cannot read USB devices)
            - Error with additional commands causing Dump1090 to terminate
            - Existing instance of Dump1090 currently running

              You'll note elsewhere in my guide what you SHOULD see during startup if the USB device is detected. I suspect my bolded bit is the cause.

              Did you actually install the zadig pack? What we are seeing there is a sign of no USB device found.

                Thanks for that.. that's what I've been reading.... I have installed the driver via zadig......and still the same output.....

                Think I have the right driver for it...worth trying the others?

                  Now that I can see the model. I don't think anythings going to help.

                  Believe that does not have a RTL283x or 802T chipset. Which means it is not capable of being tuned by open source software

                      That one will work (i.e. the attachment that shows a nooelec sdr).

                      Anyone know what happened to the FlightAware 'Pro-Stick' with the pre-amp and SMA antenna connector?

                      Edit: seen a lot of hype about this new ADS-B USB stick from FlightAware but haven't seen it for sale anywhere. They have this page on Amazon with 'unavailable'.

                      Edit: The reviews on Amazon look like possibly beta testers. Only 9 reviews and all 5 stars posted 3 days apart with the last one posted April 3rd.

                        The Pro Stick is so popular that they sold out almost immediately. Flight Aware says that they expect to have the Pro Sick back in stock sometime in mid-April.

                              Glad it's working for you!

                              Besides the new Flightaware USB stick that seems to be hard to find for sale, there is also this new one from Kinetic that is much more awesome and is also quite elusive to find for sale yet .

                              Edit: It looks like the new FA USB ADS-B stick is available on Amazon and currently showing on sale in the USA.
                              I'm still skeptical though as there is only 12 reviews all 5 stars. There are almost 11,000 feeders on FR24 alone, you would think that there would be more reviews than 12 if they were actually shipping to the public. Also, it's only showing 9 available. I wonder how easy it is to get a refund if they don't ship.
