RadarBox 24

The service is probably disabled

Try sudo systemctl enable rbfeeder
followed by sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder

A reboot should not be required in between

Thanks. All works after reboot.

Hi,

i have a problem with Radarbox and MLAT, installed everything like in the instruction above but the box in the upper left oft the map show "Active (no Station synced) or Active an X Station synched or even nothing about MLAT in alternation.

Is this a normal behavior?

I run a raspberry and currently feed FA, RB, FR24 and ADS-B exchange. Is there a script for the raspberry with which I can also feed my data to planeradar.ru, vrs.mib.vrn.ru and vrs.russia.net? How can ein install their feed client?
Я управляю малиной и в настоящее время кормлю биржу FA, RB, FR24 и ADS-B. Есть ли скрипт для малины, с помощью которого я также могу скормить свои данные на planeradar.ru, vrs.mib.vrn.ru и vrs.russia.net? как я могу установить их клиент подачи? rgds

With modeSmixer
http://planeradar.ru/doc/

NOTE: In following configuration, the local data from port 30005 of dump1090, and mlat-results of Adsbexchange at port 30157 are used. If you are not feeding Adsbexchange, then delete the lines containing port 30157.

CASE-1: Feed from single Pi

ModeSMixer2 running on Pi1

sudo nano /usr/share/mm2/mm2.conf

 --inConnectId 127.0.0.1:30005:DumpPi1
 --inConnectId 127.0.0.1:30157:AdsbxPi1

CASE-2: Merged Feed from three Pi’s

sudo nano /usr/share/mm2/mm2.conf

Want to share my RadarBox MLAT story.

RPI4 user with MM2 feeding BaseStation, PlanePlotter, FlightAware, FlightRadar24 & PlaneFinder. A friend mentioned RadarBox was another option that was available. Installed RBFeeder, setup, all good, lets try MLAT - installed MLAT Client - problems. Couldn’t get it to work. Found this site and see an old friend ABCD has been active. Followed his instructions - still problems.

MLAT 1

Fired off e-mail to RadarBox24 Support and received a quick reply to try this -

Installed required packages (dependencies and build tools)

sudo apt update -y
sudo apt-get install -y git curl build-essential debhelper python-dev python3-dev

Downloaded source code

cd /home/pi/
git clone GitHub - mutability/mlat-client: Mode S multilateration client

Built mlat-client’s installation package

cd /home/pi/mlat-client
sudo dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc

Above command took some time to build package

After the package was built, installed it by following command

cd /home/pi/
sudo dpkg -i mlat-client_*.deb

Ran the various steps and started to see numbers in the MLATs messages box but the dreaded red MLAT Inactive sign still displayed. Fired off another e-mail to support and again another quick reply “No the indicator is incorrect, do not worry”.

Then this morning, like magic -

MLAT 2

The Radarbox24 Support’s above reply is copy-paste of the method I posted 2 years ago in their forum on July 02, 2019

Thanks ABCD, my bad, should have done a more thorough search on the subject. It beggars belief why RadarBox themselves haven’t amended the script for their MLAT Client to avoid these extra steps. Thanks again, you are indeed a big help and supporter of our hobby.

No need to apologize @Kabe . It is impossible for anyone to dig out all the information scattered in many threads in large number of posts.

My reply was about the RB24 Support who did not bother to either give reference to my post, nor re-worded comment lines (starting with ##) which I have written using first person. Instead they simply-copy pated it.
