What does /tmp/piaware.out say? It will log the exact command line that mlat-client is started with. Given that neither listen port is bound, I’d say that mlat-client failed to start (or mlat is not enabled)

About ModesMixer, it’s running. This logs is before I started ModesMixer. About worked before, never. Where do I set location? I have location set in my ModsMixer2 and in my site in Flightaware, nothing else. As I can see, piaware is not even trying to start fa-mlat-client
Yep, now it’s starting. But I couldn’t see any MLAT message (counter = 0) in my flightaware statistics page

About my range, I’m kind happy with that. I’m just little sad with Flightaware…I’ve asked for FlightFeeder, but I’ve got no as answer…There are smaller cities near me that have Feeder, but doesn’t cover my Area. I know that there’s one user very, very close to my location with FlightFedder…it’s in Sertãozinho, about 20km from here. But this users rarely is online…most of time, offline, like now.
My range is with and homemade antenna (franklin) and homemade LNA + filter for 1090Mhz. I asked for FlightFeeder because I think I can make a better range with ‘professional’ antenna and receiver.
The Flightfeeders are nicely packaged and come with a well built antenna but looks are not everything.
The Piaware systems and homemade antennas can be equal or better than the FlightFeeder in performance. And, they also support MLAT while the FlightFeeders do not.
You need to get some friends in your area to add Piaware setups and share data links. Then you will have both greater range and MLAT coverage.
