It's mostly about racking up psychic brownie points. If this is what it takes for them to get their 15 minutes of fame, they are more to be pitied than censured. :idea:

For maximum effect, one can sell house, quit job and move next to a major airport (JFK for example) and aggregate 10 PiAware.
Then will rack up some fame. No fortune thou :lol:

I peaked at #5 with a homemade antenna on a fiberglass mast 30' up in the air. I have since moved the ADS-B antenna down lower because I wanted to use that LMR-400 run for a ham radio antenna. After seeing this garbage, I have zero desire to get my ADS-B station back up to bigger numbers. I thought that's why the stats were broken up between sites and users. Oh well.

If this practice of aggregating data is legitimate, then show all of us how to do it.

The data is more useful to us if there is a site per physical receiver. If you want to aggregate your data, it's better to do it after feeding piaware, not before; if you do it before feeding piaware then distant positions will be discarded and mlat won't work. There are various existing tools that aggregate multiple data feeds into a single display, e.g. dump1090 in --net-only mode, modesmixer, VRS. Configuration is left as an exercise for the reader.

Are feeds processed differently at the moment? The range of the top 2 guys seems limited to their own garden and they can use their hands to count the planes?

Could it be related to this?

Those feeds went from just unusual to actually misconfigured and causing additional problems. We're trying to work with them to resolve some issues.
