For a couple of years, I have been running a Pi2+ setup using jprochazka’s setup script along with a manual install of FR24 and in all that time, I never had any issues at all. I could just leave the setup running, leaving the PiAware software to update itself to v3.6.3.
Yesterday, using the exactly same hardware, location details etc. I decided to install the PiAware 3.6.3 image onto a new SD Card and then manually add FR24.
Granted, Flightaware gave me a brand new site number (which means I start again from day 1, which is unfair) and whilst everything was running smoothly - both PiAware and FR24, I then suddenly noticed mlat keeps dropping out - showing the red error on my FlightAware site page.
It shows that I am Supported/Enabled but not sending data - this is confirmed by my combined feed on VRS.that mlat just stops.
So, I restart dump1090 and all is fine for a few minutes, then mlat stops again.
I can confirm that my location has not changed and that identical Lat and Lon have been applied into my new site number.
Any ideas what may be wrong, or shall I just put my old SD Card in that had jprochazka’s script in from several years ago?
