No planes on local

No planes on local IP. No MLAT. Green light is flashing and must be seeing planes. Restarted several times, rebooted from flightaware server. Restarted dump 1090 with sudo systemctl restart dump1090-fa. What else am I missing? I even reloaded the pi flash card with a new image.

If you have reflashed the image, and are still seeing no aircraft locally, that points to a problem with the dongle.

Are you seeing anything in the log that indicates a problem?

Do sudo journalctl -u dump1090-fa --no-pager and see if you have any error messages showing the dongle isn’t starting properly.

For testing the dongle, please post the output of this script

sudo bash -c "$(wget -q -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wiedehopf/adsb-wiki/master/rtl_test.sh)"
