    My software
    1) Raspbian Jessie Light from Rapberry foundation:
    https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/

    2) dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev, manual install as per instructions in this thread:
    http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...-15-dev-on-RPi

    3) FR24 feeder:
    Installed using following command in SSH terminal:
    Code:
    sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://repo.feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"
    The above method for installing fr24 feeder is given on this page:

    1A is too small for Pi + Pro Stick.
    I use 3A (3000 mA) power supply.

    Yes, it does ask all details every time you signup. Although FR24 feeder on my Pi was already signed and functional, as experiment I signed up again. Here is what happened when I tried to skip entering latitude during signup

    pi@raspberrypi:~$ sudo fr24feed --signup

    [main][i]FR24 Feeder/Decoder
    [main][i]Version: 1.0.18-7/generic

    Welcome to the FR24 Decoder/Feeder sign up wizard!

    Before you continue please make sure that:

    1 - Your ADS-B receiver is connected to this computer or is accessible over net work
    2 - You know your antenna's latitude/longitude up to 4 decimal points and the a ltitude in feet
    3 - You have a working email address that will be used to contact you
    4 - fr24feed service is stopped. If not, please run: sudo service fr24feed stop

    To terminate - press Ctrl+C at any point


    Step 1.1 - Enter your email address (username@domain.tld)
    $:xxxx@yyyyy.com

    Step 1.2 - If you used to feed FR24 with ADS-B data before enter your sharing ke y.
    If you don't remember your sharing key, pelase use the retrival form:
    http://feed.flightradar24.com/forgotten_key.php

    Otherwise leave this field empty and continue.
    $:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Verifying sharing key...OK



    Step 1.3 - Would you like to participate in MLAT calculations? (yes/no)$:yes

    IMPORTANT: For MLAT calculations the antenna's location should be entered very p recise!

    Step 3.A - Enter antenna's latitude (DD.DDDD)
    $:
    Value is incorrect, please enter correct value!


    Step 3.A - Enter antenna's latitude (DD.DDDD)
    $:

    4. If you want to use the external webserver integration:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lighttpd && sudo lighty-enable-mod dump1090
    I installed dump-mutability and both fr24 and piaware, so far so good.
    Both feeds are confirmed working and I can see the web gui served by lighttpd, after fixing a missing dir.

    However, when I reboot, I need to manually recreate /var/log/lighttpd/ and chown it to www-data, otherwise the server won't start.
    This is documented, among other places, in Debian bug 679854 and 705338 but the response was basically "you're on your own".

    Given that the image supplied by FR24 defaults to tmpfs for /var/log what would be the best workaround?
    Change it to a normal directory? Go back to the internal webserver?

    Feeding 5V on long PoE cable may cause excessive voltage drop and low voltage at RPi.

    For long PoE cables, a 48V DC supply at router/switch, and a down convertor to 5V at RPi works satisfactorily.

    Below is one such complete kit. This item is given as an example for guidance only. If you search Amazon and eBay, you will find many other makes and prices.

    The kit contains:
    PoE Injector 48V DC
    PoE Splitter with integral down convertor to 12/9/5 V DC (dc output voltage selectable by a switch)
    Power Adapter AC to 48V DC
    Power Cord
    Ethernet Cable
