    i left the raspberry pi running for over an hour, and just came back to see that the receiver is down. I checked lsusb, and it does not show the reciever though it is still being powered (There is a indicator light on it) does this mean my power supply is not adequate enough? Could I downclock the Pi so it takes less power consumption, but can still provide enough power to the dongle ?(I am going to assume now that the power supply cannot provide the enough power)

    Ok, I have ordered a 3 amp power supply: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DC-5V-3A-...72.m2749.l2649

    I have downclocked the pi to 800 mhz, and disabled bluetooth. Also, the antenna I have recieved with my dongle, i have cut it down to 68mm as that is what people have told me to do. How do I get a good signal from aircraft? the antenna is right at my window(attached to the window with bluetack). Is there any setting you recommend?

    Setting it up in a laptop/desktop will allow antenna tuning and confirm if the stick itself hadn't come out of a cheaper China factory.

    Could you tell me the name of the software that is available for antenna tuning, how to tune it, and running off of a Mac or Raspberry Pi running linux.
