The laptop on which I ran sharer EP died four days ago. Moved it to my
desktop that runs 24/7 and after some help from Bev and John due to my
stupidity, its up and running again.
Performance has changed. I’m seeing off-air message rates of 600 to 800
consistently. However, FlightAware shows a marked drop in the amount of
positions reported. You can clearly see this here:
The dongle is unchanged, antenna feed and splitter are unchanged…all
that’s changed is the PC.
Tried another dongle and a different USB port…no change. Ran all day
today without my firewall…no change. Still seeing a very high message
rate…yet very poor performance per flightaware. Even tried going from
a port on the USB hub direct into the computer…no change.
Thoughts? I see nothing obviously wrong in my dump1090.bat:
dump1090.exe --interactive --net --net-ro-port 30002 --net-beast --mlat
–gain 48 --ppm 55 --net-ro-size 512
(when the laptop died…I lost all my settings…so the above is what I
had it set to if I remember correctly)
Performance remains unchanged even if I use autogain of -10.
