I have two questions regarding the dual band PiAware setup. I currently have the following PiAware setup;
-1 Pi 3
-1 Orange FlightAware Pro Stick USB ADS-B Receiver (programmed for 978 UAT)
- 1 Blue FlightAware Pro Stick USB ADS-B Receiver (programmed for 1090Mhz)
- NooElec ADS-B Discovery 5dBi (High Gain) Antenna Bundle - 1090MHz & 978MHz Antenna Bundle
Question 1: I recently added the 978Mhz receiver and I have noticed that when I plug in the Orange 978Mhz UAT receiver in simultaneously with the Blue 1090Mhz receiver it dramatically decreases my overall performance of the 1090Mhz receiver to the point where tracked aircraft goes from 50+ to <2 in a matter of 10 to 20 seconds. There are two things potential reasons I came up with, although I am unsure if it is related. The first is that the Pi 3 is being overworked with both receivers plugged in and my Pi case does not have a fan, which is causing the Pi 3 to overheat? The second potential reason is that I plugged the antennas directly into the receivers without a SMA to SMA connector. Most builds I have seen online have a SMA to SMA or SMA to MCX connector between the antenna and receiver. Is this required? That being said, when I plug the 1090Mhz Blue receiver directly into the 1090Mhz antenna (without the SMA connectors) the performance is great, it is only when both receivers are plugged in simultaneously that the performance diminishes dramatically. Is there something I am missing?
Question 2: Is there a way to have the 978 UAT data appear in the same Piaware IP address as the 1090Mhz data? I currently have two seperate IP addresses in my PiAware so I need to open two tabs to see both sets of data from each band.
