Just wondered if anyone else has an ADSB receiver set up at all?
I have mine feeding into 360radar.co.uk which gives me full access to their full coverage site which is about the best military tracker you can get at the minute.

I just have a Raspberry Pi 3B+ and a FlightAware USB Stick with a dipole antenna in the loft.

Before the pandemic I was seeing upwards of 1400 planes at any one time during the day but now it's more around 600 as the volumes are still building up in the air.

Definitely feeds my geek rather well though and there's something quite interesting watching a plane go from coast to coast and be on full track all the way through.  My coverage seems to be at around 300 miles in all directions which for such a basic, cheap setup is quite impressive!

I host my feed on my Pi directly at home at http://sterling101.net:8081/tar1090/ so I can monitor it feeding out into 360 Radar.
Doesn't get much traffic obviously but it's handy for me to have a look at and make sure it's working ok if I'm out and about 🙂
Whoever said nothing is impossible had obviously never tried slamming a revolving door...

That's cool but I know the thrill would wear off quick for me 😃

For work - I have registered AIS coverage online ... that is monitoring ship movements ... I need to know where 'my ships' are ... 

It used to be fun tracking - but it soon wore off and even the stand alone receiver on my boat I only power up when really needed .. 

But each to their own .. what we get fun out of is different for everyone .. 
I'll fly anything if I can launch it ! Youtube : solentlifeuk
