In my current setup, I have two FA antennas mounted outdoors to help deal with some ‘blind spots’ that my environment lends me. I used to run two separate instances on FA, but as time went by I decided to drop my secondary and just run my main antenna to feed the site. My ultimate goal is to utilize both antennas to feed FA under one instance with combined data, but even with searching the forum and the internet in general, I’m always left just short of being able to actually make that happen. I usually search and search until I eventually figure it out, but this one has me at a loss. I’m hoping you guys can lend me a helping hand.
My current setup:
1 Raspberry Pi 2 running FA-Image
1 Pro Stick > FA Filter > FA Antenna
My ‘spare’ hardware:
1 Raspberry Pi 2
1 NooElec RTL-SDR
1 FA Antenna
1 powered USB hub
What I’d like to achieve:
Existing FA Pi with two SDRs via powered USB hub, reporting combined data from both antennas to my one existing instance
From what I’ve read, I need to run two instances of Dump1090 on the Pi, each with different ports and then merge those with a ‘hub’ instance of Dump1090 which is on the port that FA monitors, but that’s where I get lost. I’m hoping for a guiding hand that will help me see the light (and maybe it could be a guide/sticky for those others who are scratching their heads as I have been for almost a year). Any help is greatly appreciated!
