Looks like some folks have configured their PAW as a basestation and connected to their router, you are ahead of the curve.
I have a feed in from Abingdon and Cambridge as far as I can tell ....

Code: [Select]
217.42.xxx.xxx:40981: ICAO=4CA914 lat= 51.43026 Lng=-2.15782 altft=36998 trk=100 knots=456
    81.96.yy.yy:38145: ICAO=4BB5D6 lat= 52.05415 Lng= 0.37032 altft=7024  trk=279 knots=236
    81.96.yy.yy:38145: ICAO=406674 lat= 52.19073 Lng=-0.48492 altft=21148 trk=321 knots=407
 217.42.xxx.xxx:40981: ICAO=4009BC lat= 51.60553 Lng=-1.16559 altft=32998 trk=159 knots=421

Tend to leave mine running configured as a base station when I'm not flying (i.e. 99.9% of the time!). I've got an ethernet connection handy and can leave it connected, anything else I  need to do?

The Cambridge one was me, had it running for the first time in a little while today.  Still need to sort out a permanent external aerial setup but been too busy.

Don't want to put it in the loft as the solar panels may hinder performance somewhat...

I did notice the outbound connection but didn't block it, at least I know what it's for now.

Hi Gareth,
Just plug it into your router and power it up.
Needs to be set to basestation in order to feed in to the server
Thx

Its quite lightweight, sends 24 bytes to the server for each signature.
I will further optimize this to detect that certain time/distance has elapsed

Thx

This is now coming to life, this is only with 3 basestations

Is there particular purpose/benefit to the project or just general interest?
