Trying to connect up a new prostick Plus V1.0


#1

Running a Pi 3
Followed instructions per flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install
I am not a command line expert by any means.
I continue to get Unfortunately, FlightAware hasn’t found a new, unclaimed PiAware feeder to claim.
I do not have an antenna installed on the flightaware device yet, could that be the issue?

Here is the “status”
**pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo piaware-status
PiAware master process (piaware) is running with pid 2117.
PiAware ADS-B client (faup1090) is running with pid 2178.
PiAware mlat client (fa-mlat-client) is not running.
Local ADS-B receiver (dump1090-fa) is running with pid 531.

dump1090-fa (pid 531) is listening for connections on port 30005.
faup1090 is connected to the ADS-B receiver.
piaware is connected to FlightAware.

dump1090 is producing data on localhost:30005.

Perhaps I found part of the issue, originally I attempted to install this on my windows 10 computer using Ubunu but kept getting errors… so I obtained a pi 3
So i am getting this:
Linked PiAware Receivers (w0gen)

**Great news! Your account is associated with the following PiAware receivers and you can view your statistics here:

Site 42987 - b8:27:eb:5b:83:e3: PiAware (Debian Package Add-on) 3.5 added Monday, September 26, 2016 (50.80.xx.xx / 192.168.1.147)**

Any positive assistance would be greatly appreciated!
I do have this pi on VNC Viewer…

Link to your stats page is just your username.
flightaware.com/adsb/stats/user/w0gen

FlightAware will not create a stats page until we get some plane data from a site.
It looks like you are seeing 5 planes and 20 position messages per hour. So it is kinda working.

The prostick can pick up a few planes without an antenna. Your stats are quite normal for a unit without an antenna.

PiAware will output a webpage on it’s IP address so you might be able to connect to it.

OK Great! It looks like it is working! I have an antenna hooked up temporarily in my ham shack which is basically in a Faraday cage!
Time to put the antenna outside! I wanted confirmation that the system works prior to doing all the antenna work!
Thank you for your assistance!
