Morning one and all!
Have been feeding to all the usual places for about a year now - all good.
I’m now sending a receiver “kit” (made up from my old spares), to the other end of the country (Yorkshire -> Isle of Wight).
What I’d like to achieve:
Claim this new, remote receiver as a “second reliever” on my own FA account, counting towards my stats etc.
Now, the main issue when I look at this last time was that this station is using a Pi Zero…
As the Zero has to use a dongle to get full size USB and RJ45 (network cable), the “cheapy chinese” micro-USB -> full size USB + RJ45 had a non-unique MAC address, and was showing up as another user, somewhere in central europe as far as I recall!
So, with the station being the other end of the country - remotely working with my freind to set it up down there, whats the best way to set it up?
- Do I set it up with my user creds, or it’s own, new account? Can I claim it later?
- Does FA still use Mac Address to define / ID unique stations?
The Zero already has ADSBReceiever.net image running on it, and it does work as a “standalone” receiver - doing all the usual - the only issue was claiming it?
Once networking is up and running, I’ll set it with a public IP etc so I can manage it remotely…
Thanks for any assist…
