Runs great here, and I can see several airplanes over
eastern Australia. The only issue I have is that I can only connect
to one server at a time, meaning I have to choose to see APRS
stations via the internet, or else airplanes via the internet.
This is a great idea, though, and any APRSSIG "old-timers"
can probably remember that I have wanted to be able to do this for years now.
How well is your receiver working? How far away have you
been able to receive signals for ADS-B?
How long before someone might run this in the US? I just
might have to build a cheap tower for that express purpose.
