A bit of Background
I have to admit I love tech/data and a challenge. I used to be a comms officer in a local fire service and communicated with pilots at fires. even owned a air band radio for a while (brand new but never used it) and now I find myself trying this hobby. All because I started flying a drone and decided I should try and see where aircraft are flying. Only a regional airport near me (YGLB) but get Rescue choppers into our Hospital. Located 80kms from Canberra and 2 hours to Sydney.I have worked with underground comms systems in Leaky Feeders etc, Have a marine radio operators ticket but this is new to me.
I actually may end up setting up 2 bases as where I work has an area I could install another setup but would need a 4g router to back into the internet. Will play with the first and then upgrade it and move the first to my work.
Decided I am going to run coax down the pole and if I go the RPI way, will put it under the house eave, out of sun and add cooling.
Alternatively I run an UNRAID server and I found they have a Piaware docker [Support] FoxxMD - fr24feed-piaware - Docker Containers - Unraid
As a first effort I ordered a FlightAware ProStick Plus and was wondering if I add coax can I add a LNA such as RTL-SDR Blog ADS-B Triple Filtered LNA (Bias Tee Powered) - South Eastern Communications and if so can it be powered by the prostick or am I better adding an External Bias tee
