A2G"...know when you have account of jumpers so we can head back to Pope (KPOB).." Interesting aside is everytime this freq (or perhaps freq/radio combo) is rec'd with a BCD436HP, it also decodes DCS226. Good rx. 11/02/2020 1833h -AJ
I've assembled the parts, the software (all free & not customized) and in a few hours had myself a functioning standalone
Mode-S / ADS-B Mapping system on a 7" TFT screen. This was built using a cheap RTL-Dongle, Raspberry Pi computer,
and a 7" TFT Touchscreen display. If you wanted you could put this in a small enclosure and mount it in your car.
First came Car Radios, then Mobile Scanners, and now a Mobile Aircraft Radar System for your car!
Basically all I've done is connect a Dongle capable of receiving 1090 MHz Mode-S aircraft signals to a Raspberry Pi. Then attached a small 7" display. If you didn't mind having a keyboard and mouse in your car, you could eliminate the touch portion of the screen and save yourself a ton of software nightmares!
This project is a bit more complex to explain than my past series of Raspberry Pi projects. This is due mostly to the 7" touchscreen display I had used. The "touch" hardward will NOT work with the current Raspbian operating system and requires compiling the Raspberry's Kernal which is a 12 hour process! Since I had been working with this touch screen for another project I happened to have an SD card with the correct setup laying around.
If there is considerable interest I'll put step-by-step instructions on the website. Below is a video I made of the functioning system. You can see the demo on my YouTube video by Clicking Here
Or just watch it here:
The HTML (web page code) I'm using in this project was originally designed to be displayed on a "real" full size monitor. With a bit of HTML programming, the map and data could easily be made to look a lot better on the smaller screen. But for "out of the box" software and a bit of playing it was a fun project that has some neat possibilities.....
I hope you've enjoyed this article.
