    Real World...Even though retired, it seems my adult kids still call me to help with some thing and or my wife finds some thing, or my 'day job' (share trading)...garden...F1 race in Tokyo today as well as Bathurst (Australian super car race) etc...never ending But, getting there. Managed to get the RPi booted and happy and worked out shutdown command...sudo shutdown now...little steps. Thinking more about the Flightaware dongle, maybe using Putty, my need to connect anything to the other RPi USB slots not really needed?
    I looked at your tools...very smart. Because I am using a lite version of Raspberian, tools are a bit light on.

    Work on Putty first. https://discussions.flightaware.com/...-windows/44432

    Massively more convenient than having to have an extra keyboard/monitor.
    Also allows you to copy paste commands.

    Raspbian lite basically has no graphical interface, but everything else is normal.
    You can install anything you want.

    Really no need to shut down the RPi
    But
    sudo reboot
    is useful

    I use Putty ok now...I think More just getting used to commands structure. Sort of like going back to my DOS days moving about directories.
    I had a bit of fun getting my fan shim working, because the Raspbian buster lite has some parts missing that fan shim needs. Anyway, soon resolved after loading the latest updates and pip3, and a few terms that are not included in the lite versions.
    Not sure why I have the RPi connected to a monitor, when is all it shows is the initial boot sequence. From then on, all other screen info is via my main screen with putty...OK, onwards. today, finally hope to get the dump1090-mutability installed and FR24 data feeder working. I created a small whip antenna, as I do not have any connections to go between the RPi and my scanner antenna. Though, as usual, a busy real world day so, realistically, this week.

    OK, sort of success. I now have aircraft messages etc, so far out to 58? not sure if miles or kms...Where do I adjust this on the open street map? Another issue, I must have burked my lat/lon, because instead on being in Brisbane Australia, I am some where in the Pacific ocean near Guam. From I could work out my Lat was 27.463177 and Long was 153.08818 ...anyway, we get closer, and considering my very very basic antenna, it is atleast some thing.
    Great work abcd

    Latitude is normally negative in Australia, so you want -27

    I'm not sure if you can change units in dump1090-mutability, you can in dump1090-fa though.
    I'll just link this again: https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-sc...for-dump1090fa
    Via the settings cog you can change the units.

    And the graphs you want as well, believe me https://github.com/wiedehopf/graphs1090#graphs1090
