OGN-R with VRS, not displaying ADS-B targets
« on: April 17, 2019, 08:36:32 am »
Hi all,

I Updated the software per Keith’s recent e-mail request. Then tried out the VRS function with the one OGN SDR connected and all fine for displaying PAW and OGN targets. Then decided to add a spare SDR from my original spare PAW and re-ran the Config script. This hangs indicating that 2 SDRs were found, but “device 0 with serial number 00000001 cannot be found. Most likely the serial number has been altered and the Pi rebooted without running this script. Reboot required”. I try this but config hangs again as above.

If I disconnect the second SDR and re-run the config, it finds the one OGN SDR ID=0 which it says is allocated to OGN/ FLARM reception on 868Mhz.

If I connect the second SDR (with a long body that doesn’t get so hot, with side mounted MCX socket) to my spare PAW it works fine, pulling in ADSB!

Any ideas how I can get the second SDR to work with VRS?

Thx,

Chris

Vic

Very similar problem here, brand new station just installed yesterday, ADSB reception suddenly stopped working at around 13:00 Local??

Guilty on the adsb issue
Sorry guys, I had reduced the gain on the 1090 sdr which reduced the performance
Fix committed and back to normal

Config issue not so sure

Thx

Hi Lee, you’re correct unfortunately. My OGN-R still giving the same error message when configuring with the second SDR connected!

Thx,

Chris

Hi Chris
With both sdrs plugged in, please try the following

sudo service rtlsdr-ogn stop
rtl_eeprom -d 0
rtl_eeprom -d 1

And let us know the output
Thx

Lee, is there any chance of a registration database being added. The Desktop version seems to use an Aircraft Detail Online Lookup.

It's a glaring omission to me
