UAT978 connected no data transmitted
« on: March 13, 2022, 05:51:50 PM »
UAT978 installed on pi os bullseye, rbfeeder status shows connected with Dump978-rb disabled. When Dump978-rb is enabled, status shows unable to access 978. 978 dongle is only device connected, no 1090 device connected. The 978UAT has been configured with serial 00000401 to match Dump978-rb. RadarBox shows connected but no data received.
I find no Dump1090 installed on computer, even though when trying various settings the status show Dump1090 enabled.

UAT978 installed on pi os bullseye, rbfeeder status shows connected with Dump978-rb disabled. When Dump978-rb is enabled, status shows unable to access 978. 978 dongle is only device connected, no 1090 device connected. The 978UAT has been configured with serial 00000401 to match Dump978-rb. RadarBox shows connected but no data received.


Please post output of following command:

Code: [Select]
cat /etc/rbfeeder.ini   



I find no Dump1090 installed on computer, even though when trying various settings the status show Dump1090 enabled.

This is the dump1090 capsuled inside rbfeeder, and is not visible as an stand-alone application.

If you want to stop the capsuled dump1090, do following:
In file /etc/rbfeeder.ini make setting like below:
[client]
network_mode=true

Also remove # at start of following setting
[dump978]
#dump978_enabled=true 

So it becomes:
[dump978]
dump978_enabled=true

After making changes, Save file /etc/rbfeeder.ini
Do not forget to restart rbfeeder
sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder

I note that you had it working initially with only 20 miles range, did you change anything?

I also not that you have sent back 1,650 UAT packets

Just to clarify for me, I thought that making network_mode=true would start it and network_mode=false would stop it, is that not the case

Alan

Making network_mode=true will STOP the rbfeeder's capsuled dump1090. The rbfeeder will then connect to feed from another source such as dump1090-fa or dump1090-mutability.

Making network_mode=false will START the rbfeeder's capsuled dump1090, and rbfeeder will use feed from it. The rbfeeder will NOT connect to feed from another source such as dump1090-fa or dump1090-mutability.

The dump978-rb does not get controlled by network_mode=true/false. It works if dump978_enabled=true, and stops working if dump978_enabled=false

The 978 worked for about 2hrs after installing rbfeeder using default config, the data feed stopped and resumed for a short time then quit. This occurred without any changes. As I recall the rbfeeder.ini that was created the 978 was not enabled.

Looking at the dump978-rb config file line 2 "This is sourced by /usr/share/dump978-rb/start-dump978-rb as a shellscript fragment",
The /usr/share/ folder does not show dump978=rb folder. Am I missing something?

 reviewing your last:
The dump978-rb matches mine
The edit command for "/usr/share/dump978-rb/start-dump978-rb" returns directory does not exist.

So question should I creat a folder and file to match your post of the start-dump978-rb file?
