Hello my friend, I guess the method 2 is better, I know how to do it with putty but when I installed the PiAware on the raspbian stretch, how do I enter my code or serial number that I already have in FlightAware? or in the process it is going to ask me for that??? sorry for the many questions but I’m learning :grinning:

Yes, after dump1090-fa and piaware are installed, it will ask your station’s Unique Identifier (if you want to use an existing station), or to go to claims page if you want a new station. Detailed instructions here:

Nice buddy…!!! thanks so much for ur explanation, now I am already installing PiAware in the Raspbian Stretch

If you want to use an existing station number, here is how you can find its 32 character Unique Identifier (format xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)

I’ve already found my Unique Id, I’ve rebooted the RPI, thank you very much friend for your kindness.

So I have to install all the scripts I have in my old RPI like FR24, RB24, PF, Open Sky, ADSB-HUB in the RPI with Rasbian Stretch and I don’t know how will I do it lol

Just like the first time?

Thanks for your help too, please rephrase the question that I don’t understand

Just saying that if you did it before, you just install them like the first time :wink:

abcd567 has written down some notes on how to install other feeders, i’m sure he’ll post a link.

Thanks for the explanation, I understood everything, english is not my language,

So I click the link


sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://repo.feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"  

sudo systemctl restart fr24feed  

After installation is completed, in your browser go to page ip-of-pi:8754/settings.html and make settings as shown in this screenshot:
After making settings, click “Save” button, then “Restart” button.
Both these buttons are at bottom-right corner of settings page.


wget http://client.planefinder.net/pfclient_4.1.1_armhf.deb 
sudo dpkg -i pfclient_4.1.1_armhf.deb 

After installation is completed, in your browser go to page ip-of-pi:30053 and provide sharing key, latitude, longitude etc.


sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"

sudo rbfeeder --setkey xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
## Replace xxxxxxxxxxxxxx by your actual key

sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder


wget https://opensky-network.org/files/firmware/opensky-feeder_latest_armhf.deb  

sudo dpkg -i opensky-feeder_latest_armhf.deb

Hey … !!! Thank you very much for your patience and for the great help you have given me, now I will configure all the scripts :clap::clap::clap:

One more thing my friend, when I pass each of the scripts to the new RPI, they are disabling in the old RPI ???

These are NOT automatically disabled. You have to either stop old RPI, or uninstall the feeders from old RPI.

If you run both RPis with feeders having same feeder-id / key, it will cause conflict.

You can run both RPi if their feeders have different feeder-id / key.
