    Thanks. I will try those things that I haven't already. Antenna is the sort that's coiled halfway up so difficult to accurately measure the length. It didn't come with the dongle. Indoors, on a...

    Thanks for that information.

    I do believe you! And I think "... power being supplied to the dongle being worse on the RPi the reception might be a bit worse making it insufficient." is right.

    Same setup on Linux and Pi so you'd expect the antenna/dongle to be bad on both. I've tried alternative leads as abcd567 suggested.

    Not sure this pic appeared correctly on my previous post. I'll...

    Thanks for all the advice. I know my reception is bad - I'm in a dingle with mountains all around me. A 1,000m pole for the aerial would be the only cure! I only started tracking about five or six...

    Thanks widehopf and Oblivion.

    I didn't realise: "You need 2 successive position messages to decode a position." That would explain why the range is less on my FR24 stats page.

    But in...

    Thanks for replying wiedehopf

    I had already tried a powered hub to no avail. Surely with ADSB an aircraft transmits a burst of data and in that burst is all the information? It wouldn't transmit...
  7. Linux 53nm and Pi zero 30nm and no lat/long - why?

    I migrated from Windows and have fr24feed installed on a Pi Zero and on Linux Mint (debian) on the previously Windows laptop. Both dump1090-mutability. The Pi zero has adequate power (2.2A). I was...

    I will, and thanks for your advice. Do a search for "Mach loop" and you'll understand why I set it up in the way I did originally!

    It was just handier to have a little VNC window somewhere on the screen I was on preferably set to "always on top". The alternative was to keep swapping tabs in whatever browser I was using. I...

    VNC is just a habit. Back in the day I used to run --interactive and view the output using VNC because I'm in a military TTA and so I could find out which fast jets were buzzing about. But then the...

    Yup - already have one of those! I try to do all communications with VNC but of course, if the wifi isn't configured, that's out. So you end up digging out a keyboard and mouse and plugging the...

    Thanks for the advice - I've gone for the Pi Zero, just bought one. Simply because having an old Pi means anything that needs doing to the software - updates etc - can be done on that and then the...

    Interesting alternative. Is it acceptable for MLAT? I'm back to using an original Pi version 1 at the moment and on the settings page it says "Participate in MLAT calculations (requires at least...

    Pi Zero Advice Please

    Briefly - I fed with a 1st generation Pi, it had overheating problems, so I fed using Windows, and now I'm back feeding with the Pi.

    But the Pi v1 USB ports can't cope with both a Wifi dongle and...

    But that'd upset abcd567's calculations for electricity saved because you'd have to have two computers running all the time!

    My feeding laptop is quite old (Probook - 2 core pentium - no...

    Yes - interesting that the email I got from FR24 about this was put into the spam folder by Hotmail. For Hotmail to do that must mean it had seen a very large number going through its system I'd...

    I've had the email.

    Similar to other comments - the laptop I use for feeding has other tasks such as communicating with an Arduino to tell me when lightning is about to zap everything, streaming...

    Ah - "methodical" - there's an almost forgotten word.

    But on the strength of that I re-installed libusbk, fr24feed 1.0.18.. and everything works as it should. Now why couldn't that happen in...

    As an addenda -

    I've just tried 1.0.18 and 1.0.19 on Windows 10. Neither work. They go into an endless loop of:

    I might have imagined it but I'm pretty sure it had the signal strength too - I was looking at the tracked aircraft list on 8754. Is that possible?!?!?! But everything seems to have switched off...

    That's interesting!

    So I now have FR24 - the 1.0.19 version - running with the path set to Malcolm Robb's original dump 1090. The 8754 page doesn't show any settings/connections/ although the...

  24. Windows 1.0.19-15 :8080 and :8754 problems

    I have been running a DVBT stick on Windows 7 v.1.0.18-? for a year or two after my Pi died - all fine. I've now installed v.1.0.19-15.

    Feeding is fine - connected via UDP and showing online on...

    Linux - installing feed software

    This is a Linux question rather than a FR24 one - but I'm sure there are much greater minds on here than on the Linux Mint forum to help me.

    I have a couple of Laptops with the Windows FR24...
