Raspberry Pi 2/3

Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 ADS-B for the RSP

If you don't want to load a new Raspberry Pi image, you can skip down to section 2...

Section 1 - Raspbian Image install

Download the latest Raspbian image from Raspberry Pi website (http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian)

Extract image from zip file (e.g. 2016-03-18-raspbian-jessie.img)

Use image tool to put Raspbian onto SD card (on Windows use Win32DiskImager - http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/files/latest/download)

Start image tool and with SD card inserted, make sure you select the correct device and navigate to the Raspbian image and click Write

(WARNING: This will completely re-format the device you select - make sure you specify the correct device)


Exit the image tool and remove the SD card.

Make sure the power is disconnected from the RPi2/3 and insert the SD card. Connect ethernet cable and power (and HDMI if you have a monitor) and allow the RPi to boot.

Section 2 - Install SDRplay software

After boot, either...

if you are using the GUI, download the SDRplay software from: http://www.sdrplay.com/software/SDRplay_ADS-B_RPi_0.1.run

or if you are logged in via a ssh command line use wget: wget http://www.sdrplay.com/software/SDRplay_ADS-B_RPi_0.1.run

In a terminal window, use cd to where the .run file is located (it will be in Downloads if you used a browser or in your current directory if you used wget)

Then make it executable: chmod 755 ./SDRplay_ADS-B_RPi_0.1.run

Then start it: sudo ./SDRplay_ADS-B_RPi_0.1.run

Follow the prompts

That's It! Have fun!

We recommend you use Virtual Server to for statistical information and to also see the planes found on a live map. The SDRplay installer will tell you the information to enter into Virtual Server.
