Radarbox24 have Linux Debian / RaspberryPi OS data feeder for RPi (architectures armhf and arm64/aarch64). They dont have feeder for AMD64/x86_x64 architecture.

For AMD64/x86_x64 architecture, you can install RB24 armhf feeder (for RPi) using Docker.

What is output of following commands on your Debian 10 computer?

Code: [Select]
uname -a

uname -m

Your device's architecture armv7l is suitable for installing RB24's RPi feeder on your device running Debian 10, by following command:
 
Code: [Select]

sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"

while copy-pasting command into terminal, you have broken it into two lines

Line-1 sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbf
Line-2 eeder.sh)"

You must use it as a single line command like below

Code: [Select]
sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"

-bash: lsb_release: command not found


The RB24 feeder installation script uses command "lsb_release -c"
The installation script failed due to missing package "lsb-release" which provides this command.

Install package lsb-release, then run the RB24 installation script. It will work OK
NOTE: The command is lsb_release, but package name is lsb-release. Note the difference _ and -

Code: [Select]

sudo apt install lsb-release   

lsb_release -c 

lsb_release -sc 

sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"

Great!

Did you run installation script after installing the package "lsb-release"? What did the script announce when it finished installation?

Please issue following command and post its output. The output will show if the script succeeded or not in installing rbfeeder

Code: [Select]

apt-cache policy rbfeeder

Yes I did run sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"

I now see the sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini file I will attach screen shot


Here is the Pastebin for rbfeeder https://pastebin.com/4WzzUFGd

Here is the output for

should I run sudo rbfeeder --set-network-mode on --set-network-host ‹host› --set-network-port ‹port› --set-network-protocol ‹beast/raw› --no-start ?

Open configuration file (locate at /etc/rbfeeder.ini)
(1) Make sure option "network_mode" is set to "true" under "[client]" section.

(2) under section "[network]", change the option to following:

mode=raw
External_port=10003
external_host=127.0.0.1

Mode defines protocol to use. It can be "beast" or "raw". Anything else will be ignored.

You may try alk tgree below, but only one at a time:

External_port=10003
External_port=10003
External_port=10004
External_port=10005

NOTE: "external_host" defines the host that feeder will connect to fetch data and "external_port" defines the port to connect on this host.

If you want to use the RBFeeder software with an existing decoder program
Open configuration file (locate at /etc/rbfeeder.ini) and change option "network_mode" to "true" under "[client]" section.

Now, under section "[network]", change these options:
"mode", "External_port", "external_host".

Mode defines protocol to use. It can be "BEAST" or "RAW". Anything else will be ignored. "external_host" defines the host that feeder will connect to fetch data and "external_port" defines the port to connect on this host.

GUIDE 2 of 2: FROM JETVISION  RADARCAPE WEPAGE

============================
Raw Data Streaming to Network (TCP and UDP)
The binary and AVR raw data formats are identical to those of the Mode-S Beast and documented in Mode-S_Beast:Data_Output_Formats. For the Radarcape, there is one additional message that contains timestamp and FPGA configuration information, which is triggered by each 1PPS from the GPS module.

TCP or UDP port 10002
This is a CRC-checked mirror of the data as it comes from the FPGA, DF-11, DF-17 and DF-18 are CRC checked if enabled in FPGA. Includes Mode-A/C data with respect to the configuration setting.

TCP or UDP port 10003
Binary formatted raw data with all Modes-S data formats CRC-prechecked (eliminates transmission of the erroneous frames, reduces load on the network). All data from the FPGA is disassembled into messages and verified if correct.

TCP or UDP port 10004
Binary formatted raw data, pre-checked DF-11, DF-17 and DF-18 only: minimum load for the transmission path but contains most information. No Mode-A/C data.

TCP or UDP port 10005
Binary formatted raw data, only raw data frames of those aircraft where the location (latitude and longitude) is unknown. Used for special MLAT purposes. No Mode-A/C data.

Port 30003 Service (TCP, UDP, and USB-serial)
Port 30003 style output (e.g., for use with SBS Plotter) can be provided without the need of an additional application on your PC.

The Radarcape provides this data stream on TCP port 30003, UDP port 30003, and the serial USB interface.
