Has anybody experimented with running a WebSDR service from the RPi alongside PiAware? WebSDR would use a dedicated USB dongle and antenna, and PiAware has control of its own USB dongle and antenna for ADS-B.
This is a very general question; I don’t have any specific method in mind. I’ve been playing around with public WebSDR’s online and really like them, and since there’s a RPi here running 24/7 anyway to feed FlightAware, it would an interesting side-project to add a receiver and WebSDR service to it, if that’s possible, for playing with on the LAN. Tuning in from a local computer and having a browse around to see what’s happening.
I don’t have any experience with what hardware / USB sticks are available or what radio bands are of current interest in the UK. I used to be on the CB back in the day so that would be interesting, but a search for any 27.6-28Mhz WebSDR services for those draws a blank so perhaps there is no hardware supporting it or things have moved on. It would be fun to explore any amateur radio stuff on sideband too. I did get to use a Yaesu radio for a while back in the 80s and really enjoyed homing in on sideband conversations and exploring when the skip was in.
If anyone’s played around with using a Pi for this kind of thing alongside PiAware, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
