    I believe he wants the radar coverage outline on the map display.

    That is what I tried, but it doesn't work. There are some other directories in dumper-helper:

    Code:

    -rw-r--r-- 1     2401 Mär 28 12:45 update_schema.py
    Where do I have to place those files?

    And in config.js I think I have to configure the following setting:

    Code:
    // --------------------------------------------------------
    //
    // This file is to configure the configurable settings.
    // Load this file before script.js file at gmap.html.
    //
    // --------------------------------------------------------
    
    // -- JSON-feed -------------------------------------------
    CONST_JSON = '/dump1090/data.json'; // Default '/dump1090/data.json'

    I cannot find data.json on my system. As far as I understand it, this is the data produced by dump1090, but how do I produce this file? I run dump1090 with the following parameters:

    Code:
    ./dump1090  --interactive  --net  --net-beast --interactive-rows 60 --aggressive --enable-agc
    Is there something missing? I am confused, so any help is appreciated!

    I think you may have copied the wrong folder. Inside dump1090helper there is another dump1090 folder. It's the contents of this folder you need to copy over.

    There are a bunch of files that need editing such as your coordinates etc. I'm away from my computer at the moment will reply when I can. Good luck

    Guys, I need your help!

    I get very reasonable results with the little crap antenna that was included in my DVB-T stick mounted on the rooflight (outside), dump1090 receives between 15 and 30 planes and feeds them properly to FR24. I received planes from 245 nm away, in average the limit is at around 150 nm. Today I received an adapter to connect my scanner antenna (BNC) to the stick and now I receive 1 or 2 planes at maximum. The antenna works fine when I use it on my scanner, but gives extremely poor results on the stick.

    I tested the antenna with the stick with rtl_fm, a program to receive am/fm-radio and I can hear ATIS from EDDN airport loud and clear (EDDN is 11 kilometers away on the other end of the city). So the stick-antenna-combinations seems to work. But with dump1090 I get nearly nothing.

    Is it possible that the signal is too strong for dump1090? I played a little bit with --gain and --enable-agc, but without any improvement.


    Any ideas?

    antenna tuning? (or rather not tuned to 1090 MHz)

    Try making a coaxial collinear - try 4 elements to start with, see http://www.balarad.net/

    - tape it to a stick of bamboo or something else non-metallic to support it while you test ... see what happens.

    Of course I tuned to 1090 MHz and no, I don't want to make an antenna, I have a very good antenna, that does not work with dump1090.

    that antenna is not for 1090Mhz and peterhr is correct. You can blame dump 1090

    Maybe I did not write that clear enough. It is an external antenna for scanners with a range of 25 to 2000 MHz, when I is it on my hand-scanner and tune to 1090 MHz I can even hear the typical noise of a data transmission. This is how the antenna looks like:

    This antenna should provide a much better reception than the crap 1$-antenna that came with the USB-stick.

    Antenna with range from 25-2000Mhz cannot be perfect at all frequencies in that range. That antenna receive 1090, but signal quality is not good enough like one peter suggested to you has.
    That is UHF/VHF antenna.
    Dongle antenna is made for freq. closer to 1090Mhz then that one.
