  • Alternatives to adsbScope ?

    G'Day.
    I'm having lots of trouble with adsbScope crashing every 48 hours or so.
    Is there any alternative to the above that can be recommended ?

    I also wonder why FR24 can't decode the data directly from the hardware?
    (Or have an intermediary program like adsbScope)

    Thanks, Greg.

    FR24 sw uses data directly from RTL1090 when you start is in /30003. create shortcut on desktop and go to properties and add at the end of target: " /30003" (without "" and mind the space before /)
    or you can feed from VRS.....

      You could also set-up a Linux PC or Raspberry Pi, have Dump1090 to decode. You can then feed data to VRS, FR24 (with their Linux program), ect.
      F-YSWG1 and T-YSWG2

        Works for me too ...
        Only problem is to get a new ADSBscope polar plot you need to keep the windows PC up and running or a day or so - where usually you don't need it.

          G'Day Amper. I don't use the RTL dongle, I use the GNS 5890 from Germany.
          I tried your suggestion, but no luck. I'll see if there are any setting in the GNS that may need to be modified.
          I also have a spare RTL as well (unused as yet). I'll give that a try later as well.
          Regards, Greg.

            G'Day. Sorry but this is not an option for me. I use a Windows 7 PC that is also running hardware & software for lightning detection (Boltek). See:
            http://www.hudsoft.com/nexstorm/index.html
            As it runs 24/7 this is the ideal PC to run FR24 feeder on at the same time.

            Now if I could only get the Lightning, Weather Radar, and FR24 all on the one Google Map, I'd be in heaven ! ;-)

              Greg, I have a near identical setup (several mini-ITX systems running these apps concurrently), and yeah, it would be great to get an all-in-one display!

              Here's my sensor array.

                  I have had RTL1090beta3, adsbscope, plane plotter, fr24 and acarsd running 24/7 for the last eight days without a hiccup. Perhaps it is the fresh minimum installation of Win XP that has it so stable.
