    I am looking at providing a 24 hour feed. I live near the YBBN airport. My Diamond D130J discone antenna sitting some 6 metres in the air receives from 25 to 1300 MHz! and picks up aircraft taxiing traffic as well as the usual air traffic, so coverage pretty good. I wondered if the discone antenna will play nice with the Raspberry pi I am embarking on building, or do I need a separate antenna for the 1090MHz, or a filter in the line to the Raspberry? I guess I can wait until she goes to work and add another antenna up there on the discone mast.

    You can use a filtered LNA, that's also good with a dedicated 1090 MHz antenna:

    Should work well with the discone antenna as well if the coax attenuation isn't too big.

    The pi24 image comes with an outdated decoder, also with an LNA you will want to adjust the gain, i'd recommend for example adding this script after getting the feed going:
