I have a Flightstick dongle that came through the SDR play folks…and that is pretty much the extent of what I know about it. I kinda liked FA because I could get the pro account for free (and after a week I’ll probably never look at it again)…
So, I got this dongle, antenna on the roof and a Pi3B+.
I’d like to watch to see what airplanes are in the air so I can take my ipad to a dinner party, be outside, see a plane going overhead and casually glance at my ipad and say what flight it was, where it came from, where it was going and how high it is (I have never ever been to a dinner party). But, I would like to sit outside in evening, see flight going overhear and be able to tell the wife what it is (I know she’ll be dully impressed, especially after being married 39 years).
So, since I don’t really know anything, it appears FA would do that for e…but, you tell me where to go and if you could help me get there, I would really appreciate it. If it is something other than FA and will do the same thing things, I have no preference…
I need to run out for a bit, spend some money, then be home in about 2 hours and ready to go hit this. It would be much easier for me to work with a gui so I may start over and reimage the card with regular raspbian…I don’t know if software grows (I know when programming they always seemed to grow…took classes in that a long long time ago…like before C got an ANSI sticker.
I’m putty in your hands…be back in a bit…and perhaps we can move on from there and I can get this done today…it would be nice, I have plenty of other projects in list of things to be done.
Thanks for understanding.
