Airband VHF Stick
« on: October 28, 2021, 09:24:15 PM »
Hi,

I need some help configuring my new Airband stick.

I recently added this stick to my system and followed the configuration guide.

My system is a RPI

The stick however shows 'offline'....where to start troubleshooting ?

Same issues to my airband VHF stick. How should I set it up with raspberry 3? Quick response will be appreciated

You will need to download SDR software as the stick is designed to hear ATC not see flights on the map

Windows:
Install software SDR Sharp 18 AND dongle’s driver Zadig 15  With RB yellow stick you can listen to air band only due to built in filter.

RPi or Linux computer:
install RTLSDR-AirBand 26 . With RB yellow stick, you can listen to air band only due to built in filter.

Hii ...

Thanks for quick response from your side.
(1) Ok, just a thought. But I need more info. What if I connect the RB yellow flight stick directly into the RB box which contains the ADS-B, so can the RB 24 box run both ADS-B and VHF sticks at the same time?

(2) using Linux and after installing rtl-sdr airband 26, l think you need to run some audio software (butt) and icecast2 to run in the background. So should the RB24 servers run this process or it should run in my raspberry pi 3

Regarding you queries.  When you mention in (1) the RB Box I presume you are mentioning the x-range receiver in that case yes I believe you can, I suggest that you direct your query to [email protected]

(2) It should be run on your own Pi

2) you need to claim a vhf sation at radarbox.com to share at radarbox.com, for local you only need the icecast2 and config the port that should be http://x.x.x.x:8000.

And config the file rtl_airband.config with the correct information like this:

Code: [Select]
outputs: (
        {
disable = false;
type = "icecast";
server = "127.0.0.1";
port = 8000;
mountpoint = "****";
name = "Lisboa Control";
genre = "ATC";
username = "source";
password = "password";
description = "Lisboa FIR - ACC";
send_scan_freq_tags = true;
        },
# If you need more outputs, put here
{
disable = false;  
type = "icecast";
server = "audio.rb24.com";
         port = 8000;
         mountpoint = "EXTVHF000***";
         name = "Lisboa Control";
         genre = "ATC";
         username = "radarbox login";
         password = " radarbox login";
description = "Lisboa FIR - ACC";
send_scan_freq_tags = true;
