To build a ADS-B Reciever you will need the following:
1: RTL-SDR Dongle
2: Raspberry Pi (3b or 3b+ is reommended)
4: 5v, 2 AMP or more micro usb power supply
5: ADS-B antenna
6: Micro SD Card or Full size depening on model
7: Computer with SD/Mirco SD card reader
8: Internet access
Lets get started
First of all got to this link and look for the latest download link of the image Link
And download/install this software: Etcher
Once you have downloaded and installed Etcher along with image use ecther to burn the image (.zip file) to the SD Card
Once that is done, Go to the SD card labelled boot and open and edit the adsb-config.txt with your Lattitude/Longitude, Altitude, Wi-Fi if wanting to use Wi-Fi, Username etc then save the file.
Now insert the SD card into the Raspberry Pi, Install the Ethernet cable if using ethernet and plug the antenna into the USB dongle then plug the dongle into the Raspbery Pi, Any USB port is fine.
Once that is done power up the raspberry Pi.
Now you need to find the ip address of the Raspberry Pi, To do this I suggest you log onto your router and look for a device using the username you set above on adsb-config.txt.
Once you have the IP Address of the device open up a ssh client like Putty.
Next open up the ssh client and insert the IP address and set port to 3226.
User name is "pi" and password is "adsb123"
Next open terminal and run these commands:
