Yesterday I was update my Piaware form 5.0 to 6.0 and i was select option [N] (default) from installation process. Now, my receiver have a less gain. On old piaware (5.0) i was a distanse about 180-190 nm, on piaware 6.0 only about 100 nm.
I don’t change any details form config file: dump1090-fa
# Generated automatically by /usr/lib/piaware-support/generate-receiver-config
# This file will be overwritten on reboot.
The receiver gain value is 60, and i think that from Piware 5.0 this max vaule was smaller, but i don’t know how many.
This is a PiAware sdcard image, so gain is configured in
/boot/piaware-config.txt. What’s the contents of your
part of piaware config file:
# 1090MHZ RECEIVER CONFIGURATION
# For a complete list of receiver types and their associated settings,
# see the Advanced Configuration page linked at the top of this file.
# For a receiver type of 'rtlsdr', this setting controls the dongle gain.
# Use "max" for maximum gain. Other values are interpreted as a gain in dB.
# Additional settings can be added below.
adaptive-dynamic-range no # updated by fa_piaware_config
this is a max value, but my receiver working on smaller distance.
Gain of 60 is correct for that config file. (Previously, this gain setting would be called “-10” in the dump1090 config, but it’s the same hardware setting)
If you want some other gain setting, you’ll need to change the piaware-config.txt file to reflect that.
On Piaware 5 i was have a default gain about 40 ?
What is a default (max) gain for piaware 5 ?
max gain setting for v5 is 49.6
