New user here, only been receiving ADS-B for about a week. My range was limited to 38 miles. I built a 16 section coaxial collinear, now my range is out to 125 miles which is all I want. Any further and I will get loaded with KBOS and KJFK traffic.
I am running a RPi 3B+. I aIm not a programmer nor a person who knows much of the RPi. I took a new 32GB SD card and flashed it with the programs Flight Aware says to download and use. All works fine. I don’t no how much RPi code is contained in that Flight aware down load. I have one monitor that displays the Flight Aware ALT 10 terminal display. But I have to use my Mac with Firefox and go to IP address 192.168.1.16 to display My Stats Page and my 1090
Skyward map. I can not tie up my Mac all night watching the 1090 Skyware Map Display.
In doing a lot of reading, I believe that I can get the RPi 3B+ to load software for a GUI. Presently I am running headless. If I can get a GUI going then I have a large screen monitor for 1090 Skyware
Map display or switch to terminal mode if wanted. I have read about many different ways to add code and bring up a GUI Screen/Session. Not being a programmer or really understanding Linux programming, I can NOT chance Hosing up this working system I now have. I can’t handle a big Ooops.
Is there any one reading this that has done what I want to do and not had any problems that can share with me the needed code to add in terminal session to bring about the wanted GIU.
