Can I feed to Flightaware with a NooElec stick?


#1

Hi all, I have just got Raspberry Pi 3 and have it connected with a NooElec NESDR Mini 2+ https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00VZ1AWQA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 now my question is (apologies if some have asked it before) can I send data to FlightAware and see everything my stick picks up I frequently get police helicopters, air ambulances and other MLAT aircraft over but although picked up by the antenna they never show on a map.

Thanks

Yes, provided you install the FA feeder, which is called Piaware.

There is no way that I know of that you can feed ADS-B to any site and still monitor other frequencies/services.

Looks like you don’t have an ADS-B decoder installed. Install the all in one Piaware image, the easiest and best way to handle ADS-B reception and feeding.

Thanks. I shall take a look.

Hi, I’ve followed the instructions here - https://uk.flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install

But it’s not working

Anyone able to help?

Do I need PiAware installed on the memory card then enter the code using Putty?


#5

it is working now, you may also try https://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install
without the uk. part.
if still no joy, check browser settings and firewall /antivirus.

yes, to 2nd question.

Hi when I meant the code wasn’t working not the link sorry for the confusion

If I just download the PiAware onto a memory card would that mean I wouldn’t have to use the code?

if by by ‘code’ you mean the Piaware program, downloading is not enough. you must install what you downloaded ! did you follow all the steps from that flightaware page ?
did you install dump1090-fa or any other decoder / feeder ?
when all finished you can see the output in your browser with ip-of-RPi/dump1090-fa.

can you post the output from sudo piaware-status ?
