Just finished setting up a new Raspberry Pi 3 B+ configured with PiAware 1090 MHz ADS-B tracking software.
Tracking Bomber 165 over a fire in Namadgi National Park, which started around 1400h today.
2 am – callsign FireScan is undertaking a survey from 30,000 ft.
Radpberry Pi 3 B+ purchased from a local dealer for $59. 1090 MHz antennas are a homebrew 1/4 ground plane and a 1/2 wave vertical dipole, both connected to a RF splitter/combiner followed by a RF amplifier. I have a 1090 MHz bandpass filter on order. 🤗 .
