Have a receiver and ready to share?
Install the Operating System
Follow the instructions in the video below to install the OS on your Raspberry Pi.
Our system works by using a sharing key. This key identifies your station and is present in the packets that are sent to our servers. When you first run our software on your raspberry pi, your sharing key is automatically created and is saved in a configuration file. If you already have a sharing key from a previous installation, you can change the configuration file and save it with your key. That way you won't lose your sharing history. Each installation should have a unique sharing key.
With RBFeeder, you can share data using an RTL Dongle or other decoding software such as ModeSdeco, ModesMixer, dump1090 and VirtualRadar Server.
sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"
sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini
Register your Receiver
Registering or claiming your receiver is an important step in the setup process, as data is not shared with AirNav RadarBox unless this step is complete.
- To register your receiver, go to this link - https://www.radarbox.com/sharing-data/claim
- Enter your SHARING KEY in the field provided and then click CLAIM.
- That's it! You'll also get an email stating that your receiver has been successfully registered with AirNav RadarBox.
