Building a small ADB-S receiver



June 2019


This is just a test antenna, I will rebuild it in the summer. The HF antennas etc is missing.
On top of the mast is a 1090 MHz 5/8 wave antenna that I feed to the box below.


Inside this box you find a Raspberry Pi 2 (no need for more power), a ADB-S dongle, a WiFi USB stick, a 1090 filter and a 12 to 5 volt power down converter.

The Raspberry running Ubuntu with dump1090 that sending data to RadarBox24 and PiAware. Really simple..
