    G'Day Radek.
    Congrats on your successful install. Great to see the range you are getting with mini antenna.

    Now if only you could install this on the Microwave tower I see in one of your pics - in the middle of the night of course ;-)

    Tip:
    I used to have a tripod like that, with my telescope mounted on top. One night one of the legs collapsed, sending my scope crashing on to a concrete / tiled floor, causing considerable damage (to the scope of course!)
    So... BE CAREFUL !

    Also:
    If you have any roof space available under the tiles, you could try mounting your PC etc there instead of wrapped in a plastic bag (which will deteriorate in the sun).
    A bargeboard TV mount should work for you. I have 2 of them for my setup (2 different adsb antennas).
    See:http://www.jaycar.com.au/ShowLargeph...20Mount&IMAGE=

    Good luck with your project.

      Hello Greg!

      It's tripod from China's telescope
      I already have mounted stones to legs, only tornado can turn it over.
      Antenna mount is good idea, I have a one piece in my garage.
      When I'll get better adbs antenna then I use this mount.

      In background you can see BTS tower. Tower is fenced with barbed wire

      When I improve the results I'll let you know.

        Virtuelradar Server,.

        May I remind all using VRS to enter your own location (Lon. Lat.)
        Otherwise from your Link,. It shows South England.
        And not your location.

        Happy Hunting David

          Went live today feeding FR24 as NZNV1 using a RTL-SDR FM+DAB DVB-T Dongle Stick RTL2832U+R820T from Noo Elec running RTL1090 software. Dongle connected to PC via a 5m active USB extension allowing placement of the mini antenna supplied with the dongle on my single story roof. First contact was 191nm from my location!!!

            Excellent range from a tiny antenna. 191 nm from 'where' ? What town, and are you east or west of the huge pile of rocks ? ;-)

                Is there any all in one solution to using DVB-T dongle and raspberry pifor feeding flightradar ?
                I mean using only that devices without need any another computer.
                I have try using rtl_adsb, but the data can't be used by fr24 feeder app,
                because the data is in AVR format.

                    only SBS format.
                    or maybe I should request special linux feeder that also decode AVR format ?

                      Try gr-air-modes. Not the easiest install.

                      https://github.com/bistromath/gr-air-modes

                      Or Dump1090:

                        Hello!

                        In my opinion rtl_adsb is much better than gr-air-modes, shows more planes,

                        but dump1090 is much better than rtl_adsb (with some options like --no-fix --enable-agc)

                        unfortunately dump1090 hangs up my Raspberry 2-3 times in 24 hours...

                        I still don't have idea idea how to change AVR signal to BaseStation on Raspberry

                          I read somewhere that the Raspberry PI didn't have enough raw processing power to run RTL1090 software

                            I found solution to transform AVR signal to BaseStation

                            Just compile and run adsbox - it's client of AVR and server of BaseStation (30003)

                            Now my Raspberry is all in one!

                            Site of adsbox:
                            http://diseqc.org.ua/projects/hard/adsb/index.html

                            Remeber - to compile it you need last version of sqlite and place it like that:
                            eg.
                            /home/user/sqlite3
                            /home/user/adsbox

                            next
                            cd to adsbox folder and try make

                            look on my 'top' command on my raspberry with 512 ram:

                              It was not intended to be a joke - I was trying to help you as everyone else does on this forum. It saddens me to read that you think otherwise ...

                              I'm delighted you now have your system operating as you desired. For what it's worth, I was referring to RTL1090.exe and you are running something else!

                                I like this solution.
                                I'll try it as soon as my rasp pi in my hand.

                                now I'm still using gr-air-modes with very powerfull PC,
                                but very limited range.
