I have a single raspi running 3 SDRs:
Station 164961 has piaware with dump1090 and dump978
Station 166625 is running a second instance of piaware with dump1090-fa2 per the following thread:
The second station was added (with a low gain antenna) and to cover taxiing aircraft at my base to enable me to use the power-on and taxi alerts for those that need to know where I am and what I’m doing.
Now that I have complicated everything and I am in way over my head, I would like to know if there is an easy way to forward data (by say, modifying my /etc/default/dump1090-fa and /etc/default/dump1090-fa2 files) to get the data into one station. There isn’t much overlap between the two stations because the gain settings and antenna setup are very different.
I see lots of threads on the general topic, but it seems to be people working through similar aggregation tasks but without a clear final “here’s what to do”. For instance, I don’t thing I need to use a solution with “socat” because both 1090’s are running on the same device (I serialized the three SDRs to 00000978, 00001090, & 00001092 with the middle one being the short-range receiver)
Could anyone point me in the right direction of which lines I should modify in these two dump1090 configs:

My apologies for dumping all this into the forum, but I’d appreciate any help since I just got lucky getting the whole thing going in the first place and have no idea what I’m doing. Before setting up this Raspi, the last time I logged into a unix terminal was in 1994 playing with Slackware in the days of dialup internet.
