I have done some comparisons running a Raspberry Pi with Piaware and the RTL dongle plugged straight into a laptop running dump1090 win and uploading via Planeplotter. I notice that in the stats I get almost double the messages per flight for the laptop installation. Is this because the reporting period is set longer in Piaware?
I think PP sends FA all your aircraft seen in the past interval, regardless of if you have a new position. PiAware doesn’t.
Sounds very plausible. Thanks Daniel.
I have installed Piaware 1.19 and my reports per flight have doubled to 60
