I've updated my setup with this new software.  No issues, seems to be running fine.  Not much good to anybody at the moment however, there are no other Ground Stations in my area :( .. perhaps someday.  I still need to install a better antenna too for better range.

#95181 May 9, 2014

Sharer DW also update my setup and i am happy to report 80 to 100% increase in message rate in planeplotter and also beamfinder working a lot better ! Only negative for the moment is that i can no longer see the signal strength in planeplotter...

But a big thank you for this piece of software !!!



----------------------------

#95188 May 9, 2014

Bev and I are aware of this limitation and we think we know what it is - basically signal strength isn't included in the data stream from dump1090_win to PP. If it's a showstopper for you short term, there is a work around, but I'd prefer people wait for a proper fix, which hopefully won't be too far away. CheersMalcolm

Yes, that turns out to be my goof and will be fixed in the next

release but it may take a little while.

Hello

I managed finally to operate dump1090

but when I run tests networking mu test I always get the error

"The time graph tag is defective. Please check in PlanePlotter That the receiver settings are correct and That there is no third party application between the receiver and planeplotter

but on the map I see my planes and share regularly FlightAware

what should I do?

The problem is the lack of data. If you are really using the Mode-S

Beast then your data rate is less than 1% of what we would

expect. The Beast should give you masses of messages and there is

only a trickle. Are you sure the antenna is connected correctly and

in a position where it has an unobstructed view of the horizon?



With only a tiny amount of traffic the technique PlanePlotter uses to

calibrate the GS clocks does not work and so the installation cannot

be used as a Ground Station.

I am puzzled that you are talking about rtl1090 and dump1090, which

are the utilities used with an RTL dongle, when your PlanePlotter

installation is reporting that you have configured it to use the

Mode-S Beast receiver. A very different receiver from the dongle.



Please tell me if you are using a dongle or the Beast receiver. If

you are using a dongle, then your receiver setting in PlanePlotter is

completely wrong and it would explain all sorts of problems.

Hi Alfonso,



I also experienced this when I swapped from rtl1090 to dump. This was

because the receiver was being swamped in dump. I messed about with the

gain settings and found that by editing dump to include the command

--gain 42.1 it vastly improved. You can however make dump autogain to

the best sensitivity with the command --gain -10

Worth giving it a try to see if it improves things.

I was only getting a few aircraft populating Dump. If you are getting a

So why is PlanePlotter reporting that you have told it to expect a

Beast receiver? That is the wrong setting in Options..I/O settings.



The clock rate out of the Beast is radically different from the clock

rate out of the dongle so with that setting, the time tag will be

completely wrecked.



Use the right setting and perhaps it will work correctly.

On one system here, the port is 31001, making the whole address:



127.0.0.1:31001



That is with no port explicitly set in the sump1090.exe command-line.

If you want to see the list of aircraft you can replace --quiet with --interactive
