Damn, this ADSB preamp

Why is this so good? And why does it feel even better when one looks at the Uputronics preamp prices? Test location, 40 feet of concrete 180° behind the FA antenna with the rtl-sdr v3 dongle + adsb preamp. Poor location. https://i.imgur.com/g6l6snc.png You can see the antenna deaf spot between 95° a...

Re: ODRIOD XU4-based multi-dongle host

I wished to do something similar, and went back and forth between the XU4 and the C2. I loved the extra oomph of the XU4, but it could need >2 Amps starting up with 4 or more dongles. That broke it for me, since I had solar power in mind. Man did I want the extra performance :( https://i.imgur.com/Y...

I'll try your binary file. I think the router is only 32 bit anyway. :D
My binary is for the x86/64 platform and will not work on an Atheros SoC.

Re: Running the RTL-SDRv3 on an old router for ADS-B

I'm not sure how to do that. Hope this build works with the Atheros CPU in the router. OpenWRT makes cross-platform compilation easy. If it builds for x86/64, there's no reason short of exotic library issues why it shouldn't build on an Atheros. Have you asked for help on Freenode's #OpenWRT or #le...

Re: Running the RTL-SDRv3 on an old router for ADS-B

If you can compile OpenWRT packages, you're in luck. This OWRT Makefile builds rtl_biast - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2227

Package creation throws some error I haven't looked into, but the binary builds and works fine.

Re: OpenWRT/LEDE packages?

I built rtl_biast for the x86/64 platform on OpenWRT 17.01.4 running kernel 4.9.72 A multimeter confirms 4.48V to 4.7V output depending on the length of the USB cable. I'm having trouble packaging it for OpenWRT, but here are the binaries and OWRT Makefile for others. All files in the .tgz archive g...

Re: OpenWRT/LEDE packages?

I've tried and am unable to compile rtl_biast for Openwrt.
I've asked on IRC thinking lots of folks use it with openwrt but no luck after which I posted here.

Any chance of this? Even binaries compatible with openwrt would be great as I'm unable to test my rtlsdrblog ADSB preamp.

OpenWRT/LEDE packages? (SOLVED)

Hi,

It'd be nice if packages for rtlsdrblog's binaries like biast were available for openwrt/lede.

Re: wideband antenna for satellite reception

See Tindie or viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2080 for an inexpensive Vivaldi instead of the venerable RFspace one's.
