    # If you are using a PiAware sdcard image, this config file is regenerated
    # on boot based on the contents of piaware-config.txt; any changes made to this
    # file will be lost.
    Note the "If".

    Maybe you just didn't save the file when editing it? (in regards to the ppm setting)

    The settings from piaware-config in regards to dump1090-fa normally have zero effect when not using the piaware sd-card image.

    Thanks.

    I couldn't find piaware-conf.txt and I'm sure I saved the file because I checked it before rebooting and it had changed back after rebooting.

    Come to think of it though, I don't think I've restarted since issuing the piaware-config command.

    What is this maximum of 22 replies nonsense on FA?

    If you are running two RPis maybe you mixed them up?

    The piaware-config.txt is located under /boot. But it shouldn't be present as you aren't using the piaware sd-card image.

    Anyway it's easy enough to check, change the gain via piaware-config, do a reboot and check the config file.
    If the file does not have the new gain value you selected it does nothing and if it works well maybe you do have the piaware sd-card image

    That maximum is only for new users.
    At least new users can post links over there.

    IDK. Just rebooted and it wasn't set so I set it in etc/default/dump1090-fa and rebooted and it stayed set.

    props to you sir!
