RB ini file (SAT???)
« on: January 02, 2020, 08:56:34 PM »
In my ini file the following lines:

Quote
sat_used=0

sat_visible=0

What do these control?

2nd question, when I look at my station, UAT is on the menu, do I need to change something to enable feeding UAT to RB? Already feed UAT to flight aware.

Thanks!!

You cannot feed both ADS-B and UAT from rbfeeder.
You can feed either ADS-B or UAT from rbfeeder.

RBFEEDER (ADS-B):
Receives feed from dump1090-fa
Setting in file /etc/rbfeeder.ini
Code: [Select]
[network]
mode=beast
external_port=30005
external_host=127.0.0.1

RBFEEDER (UAT):
Receives feed from dump978-fa
Setting in file /etc/rbfeeder.ini
Code: [Select]
[network]
mode=raw
external_port=30978
external_host=127.0.0.1


Another (untested) option is to use ModeSMixer2 to combine ADS-B and UAT data from dump1090-fa and dump978-fa, then feed this combined data to RBfeeder:

(1) Install ModeSMixer2 on RPi (https://github.com/abcd567a/mm2/blob/master/README.md)
(2) Configure ModeSMixer2 to receive beast data from dump1090-fa from 127.0.0.1:30005 AND raw data from dump978-fa from 127.0.0.1:30978
(3) Configure ModeSMixer2 to output combined data in beast  format at port 32005.
(4) Configure rbfeeder to receive beast data from ModeSmixer2 at 127.0.0.1:32005

OK, I have prepared a script which installs ModeSMixer2 on Raspberry PI, and configures it to receive data from dump1090-fa and dump978-fa, combine it and then serve it on port 32005 in beast format.

Copy-paste following command in terminal, and it will install ModeSMixer2, and configure it as combiner.
Code: [Select]
sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abcd567a/combine-1090-978/master/install-combiner.sh)"

Once you install it and it is running, you change port number from 30005 to 32005 in rbfeeder's ini file  as shown in red:

Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini
Quote
[network]
mode=beast
external_port=32005
external_host=127.0.0.1


Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder
