I have a USB dongle, a homebrew antenna and give data to most of the tracking sites from a dedicated Windoze 10 PC. Although a good thing, I never bothered trying to set-up MLAT.
I have never been a fan of PP, but I stayed with it because I like the FA tracking page I fly a lot).
After receiving the email about FA dropping PP, I decided it was time to try a Pi.
WOW, amazing how after being assimilated using windoze, I’d forgotten so much command line.
I ordered just a Pi 3B, IMO ADSB doesn’t need the extra CPU speed.
None of this is a complaint, rather trying to help someone that is or considering moving to PiAware.
I’m a hardware guy, I remember just enough Linux to be dangerous, I only followed the online instructions for setting up the SW and PiAware.
I found the instructions for d/l’ing and setting up the SD card inaccurate (confusing?);
***Editing the config file, using a Windoze text editor after the Micro SD card had been formatted for the Pi ? ***Win10 didn’t recognize the MicroSD card, it kept wanting to format the card. I ignored all that and put the card in the Pi.
PiAware 3.6.3 booted and worked as-is, no config changes needed. and I have MLAT.
All-in-All, I highly recommend moving to a Pi & PiAware and now I have a small PC to dedicate to my 3D Printer.
***UPDATE: Assuming all the instructions were correct, I kept trying to read the micro SD card and after the 4th or 5th insert - pull - reinsert, Windows recognized it. ???Shoulder shrug
