I’m trying to figure out how to set up a stand-alone 978 system. I have a RadarBox 978 FlightStick and an AirNav UAT 978 antenna, and also a new Pi kit. No filter. First question - will this combination work?
The instructions on the flightAware website are not clear to me.
I have I followed the 1090 steps 1, 2 and 3 and then went to modify the piaware-config file.
The 978 instructions say:
To enable UAT mode, set “uat-receiver-type” to “sdr” and “receiver-type” to “none”. A reboot is required for receiver changes to take effect. Other piaware-config UAT options can be found in the table above.
I opened the piaware-config.txt file on the SD card, and added the two lines uat-receiver-type sdr and receiver-type none.
The system powered up just fine and is now visible online. But, hardly any traffic visible.
What am I doing wrong?
