    You can, but some like to compare hardware side by side in a test environment (and there was/is? providers that contractually restrict who you send data to from their hardware)

    Thank you, it is what I am doing with my RPi indeed.
    Maybe my question was not clear.
    Is the result better if you use the original company receiver or is it the same if you use a RPi?
    I believe the result should be exactly the same because I believe its only the antenna that masters.
    Am I right?

    That would depend on the quality of the receiver, its sensitivity, filtering etc etc. Remember that the RPi in the ADSB sense is only as good as the receiver device you attach to it, after all it is just a computer.

    Great ideas and pictures everyone! I am wanting to build my own outdoor box but I just am not sure if it needs to be 100% waterproof and enclosed or if it needs vents and or a fan? I live in the US in Oklahoma and the box would be facing the west side of the apartment getting the PM sun where our temps outside reach ~100F/~38C with relatively low humidity. We are currently heading towards fall/winter so our hot days are mostly gone already.

    Dear Kenny,

    I have described my equipment here https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...ll=1#post92475. As you can see all the electric components are stored in the case of a derelict PSU. The fan works with 5V from the power source to prevent overheating (dump1090 causes about 20-40% CPU load to the Raspberry Pi). I stored it outside, but in a dry and roofed place. Due to the permanent ventilation, some dust accumulates inside the case over the time (I have disassembled it recently). I suggest using a grounded metal case to prevent QRM.

    Kind regards from Karlsruhe, Germany!

    My ADS-B setup project

    Hi Guys!
    Here is my setup

    Hardware used:
    Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (3A power supply)
    Dump1090 provided by Flightradar24 (i use my own API to show the map without the limitations)
    Generic RTL-SDR Dongle (R820T2 Chip) + stock mini antenna modified to match the 1090mhz range.
    USB extension cord
    Ferrite bead
    Gewiss Junction box 240x140x90 (Model GW44208)
    Power Cable, white color.
    Black clips with adhesive tape to maintain the cables firm.

    My Flightradar24 radar name is T-LIRN24
    Airport: Naples, Italy

    Currently my maximum range is of 100nm

    Thinking of buying a new antenna to put on the roof.

    Also, i have a PDF with all the details but can't post it here.
    Here is another picture with the setup running.
    Obviously everything is closed and water tight.

    What's yours?

    Cheers!

    Saturday Afternoon:

    By using FlightAware N-Type Antenna 5.5dBi all initial tests in the temporary location was very good.
    Next weekend device will be moved to the permanent location near LXS/ LGLM airport in Greece.

    Details about all parts used for this project and the radar name will follow.

    As promised, my new radar is in operation, with name T-LGLM1.

    Below is a list with the parts used for this implementation:
    1. Raspberry Pi 3 - Model B+
    2. Raspberry Pi Power over Ethernet (PoE) HAT
    3. Tp-Link PoE Injector TL-PoE150S
    4. Kingston Micro Industrial SDHC 16GB Class 10 SDCIT/16GB
    5. FlightAware 1090MHz ADS-B N-Type Antenna 26" - 5.5dBi
    6. FlightAware Pro Stick Plus (USB SDR ADS-B Receiver)
    7. Hyperflex 5 Coaxial cable (4.5 meters)
    8. N connector (CO.N.54M-S)
    9. SMA connector (C.SMA.HYF5M-CR)
    10. Waterproof Ethernet Cable Gland - RJ45 Male to RJ45 Female
    11. IP66 Junction Box171X121X80 mm

    Are you guys really using the RPI in a box outdoors? 365 days a year?
    I'd really wonder if this is working, I don't think so

    A secondary sun shield to keep the entire box from overheating probably helps.

    But with a fan why shouldn't it work? In the winter the heat of the pi keeps the complete box at least a little bit dry or drives out moisture that might get in.

    What do you think would fail?
