I’ve got a £5 voucher to spend on eBay. What’s the best ADSB related thing I could spend it on/put it towards?
I’m currently running 2 Pi’s with FlightAware, have 2 of the FlightAware filters and 2 home brew cantennas.
Voucher expires at the weekend so be quick!
In-line Sky Tv Amp?
Of course you’d need a power supply, but they’re about £10 - maybe your next voucher?
If you want to get a little hacky and crafty you might try getting one of these displays. I had fun setting up mine and I love that the box gives me some direct visual feedback now.
That display looks great fun, although the pints are tempting! As would be knowing where I could get a pint for £2.50 these days!
But given the postage may be a little tricky for the beer, I think the display is winning at the moment
Here’s one from the UK ebay that is just about the right price.

If you search for “SSD1306” (the display driver chip) an array of options will show up. I’m using a 4-pin i2c variant, but you could get bit of a faster display refresh rate using SPI. You can enable both or either on the pi.
Can someone explain me the title of this thread ? “a fiver off” ?
“off of eBay” (occasionally shortened to “off eBay”) = “from eBay”
Might make more sense if imagined in a Geordie accent…
