New user - excited to join the “club”.
Got my Pi2, FlightAware stick, FlightAware filter and antenna setup and going.
The issue I am curious about is that my data comes and goes – for brief periods of time I am getting data on quite a few planes; but then for longer periods I get no data at all.
The PiAware app shows no data recently. I understand my setup won’t receive extremely long range, but I wouldnt expect there to be zero data.
During the time where no data is being collected, the Pi is running ok - I can SSH into it, the little hdmi monitior shows the system & application continiously running (no rebooting due to low voltage/amps power) and it’s shows connection to FlightAware as being ok. When I bring up the device’s SkyView webpage, it operates ok, just no aircraft on the map, and the table is empty.
You can see the cyclical nature of the data collection from my profile:
