    brilliant, guess I overlooked that bit

    Thanks for pointing me in the right way

    should've read this part in the instructions:

    By default, the feeder software looks for decoded data on TCP port 30003. RTL1090, by default, outputs TCP data to port 31001 but this can easily be changed. RTL1090 accepts a command line parameter to change the port to 30003. The simplest way to implement this is to create a Shortcut to RTL1090.exe and include the “/30003” parameter (without the parenthesis) in the Target, for example:

    D:\RTL1090\Files\rtl1090.exe /30003

    Where D:\RTL1090\Files should be replaced by your own folder location for the rtl1090.exe file.

    If you have a Basestation error message, the feeder software cannot find any data on port 30003.

    If you're using RTL1090 to decode the receiver data, have you set the port 30003 parameter?

    Hi

    Installed TV dongle and followed instructions supplied by Flightradar24. Can see aircraft if using PlanePlotter software. Only drawback is that I only 'see' a max of 3 a/c at any on etime, maybe more when with the transatlantic flights.

    Using Flightradar24 software, registered as per normal but aside from low aircraft info (at least 2 required) I just want to make sure everything else is correct.

    Basestation : Error (waiting 5 sec) before attempting to connect to localhost: 30003. Is this normal when using TV dongle?
    Network: Off

    I'm assuming as little a/c at the minute this is why things seem a little show and no sharing key yet.

    Thanks in advance
    Ali

    Mine is made with 33cm unshielded TV coax and as a ground plane the bottom of a thunafish tin.

    More than 200nm.

    Make one yourself: http://x264.nl/dump/ads-b-antenna-gr...ane-proper.jpg
    Those ADS-B antennas you can buy are just a piece of coax and work not so well and are way too expensive.

    A GP + ADSB# = recording data collecting, i'll challenge anyone who thinks otherwise....

    Edit:
    Some extra info:

    A TV antenna. Or rather broad TV band tuned.

    And yes, you need to look online for 1090Mhz ADSB antennas. And there are numerous threads on this forum with shop/suggestions/DIY links etc

    As CGlobe says, As long as there is OK/OK status. Forget about what you see online. It will always use the most recent and constant data.

    All data helps the community, if you are in the game to show off your own station over someone elses, it may never happen in built up areas. So use local display and the comfort you are filling in the gaps.

    It all depends on how many other feeders are picking up the same aircraft and sharing it - I'm not sure but I'd imagine it all depends on signal strength and the timestamp, etc. as to which FR24 uses.

    As long as the FR24 program says you're uploading OK, and your account on the website says it's all active and working, then it's all fine

    Display in the RTL1090 window.

    Ok, so i know ive been asking a lot of questions, im just trying to figure some things out guys thanks for the patience. When the aircraft are displayed on my RTL1090 screen, and even though another radar is picking up the feed and not mine when u look at the display on the left hand side of the FR24 map after clicking on a plane icon on the map. Am i still feeding into the system and is it good data. I have only seen once that the radar picking up a certain flight was actullay mine, there is one in our area, around london ontario that seems to be real strong and is always most times displayed in the flight info data on the left of the screen.

    As sinnet3000 correctly states, the DVB-T stick doesn't include a 1090Mhz antenna.


    The supplied antenna isn't tuned for 1090MHz.

    It was sent from one there U.S.A depots that deal with stuff i guess. I know it has to be short i just wanted to extend it a bit to get better reception because i cant move my pc to a better location, although where i am now it seems to be receiving quite well.

    The DVB-T stick doesn't include a 1090Mhz antenna. Unless you made an order somewhere that is selling an actual 1090Mhz antenna with the coaxial cable and adapters. Either way, the best option for performance, it's to keep the connection between the antenna and the DVB-T stick as small as possible, but you can get an USB Extension cable for the DVB-T stick to the USB port of the computer. That's a much better option.

    I am in Canada, ontario to be exact, anyone know where i can get an extension to the 1090 mhz attenna that came with my DVB-T usb stick, its only 3 ft long. I have looked everywhere in Sarnia, at the Source, future shop, they look at me like i have 2 heads LOL.


    If anyone knows of anywhere msg me the details so i can look it up and order some.
