Greetings, I’m having some difficulty interpreting the various tutorials out there on setting up 978. I currently have a 1090 setup on a Raspberry Pi 3+ with PiAware. Seems 978 is a lot more involved.
Here is what I have:
Separate Raspberry Pi 3+ (I’m not trying to run 978 and 1090 on the same box)
Micro SD Card
978 Antenna + Cable
FlightAware Pro Stick
I downloaded PiAware Raspbian Linux 3.8.1 and etched to the micro SD card. Modified the wifi instructions in the piaware-config.txt file for my network.
After this, the instructions get fuzzy. On the FlightAware page, aside from the standard 1090 setup instructions, there’s a link to here: https://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/advanced_configuration#uatsteps for the apparent steps to do 978. It picks up with “To enable UAT mode, set “uat-receiver-type” to “sdr”…” It references an advanced configuration to modify, but I’m not seeing how to do that by modifying a .txt file in the PiAware etched SD card like piaware-config.txt. I’m at a standstill.
- Can anyone provide concise steps on the appropriate path to configure PiAware for 978 operation, beginning with the correct program to be written on the SD card?
Again, I’m running this on a separate Raspberry Pi 3+ rig rather than having two dongles on a single unit. Once appropriate configuration for 978 is established, I wish to “claim” this new 978 receiver within my current FlightAware account where my 1090 data is already feeding.
