ADS-B tracking

Post by vk6hgr » Sat Jan 21, 2017 2:55 pm

I've been experimenting with RTL TV dongles and have set up a ADS-B receiver. Antenna is a UHF CB Yagi which, bizarrely, seems to work sort of ok. Next project is getting a better 1090MHz antenna up in the air to improve the range.

Check it out at

The receiver is a D-Link DIR-612 router running OpenWrt and the dump1090 software.
