ADS-B using the R820T USB Dongle and VirtualRadar

Having managed to produce the Data I also wanted to try displaying it with virtual radar. This is available from http://www.virtualradarserver.co.uk/  To use it with ADSB# server some parameters have to be changed under options. Data source to "AVR or Beast raw feed", Address to 127.0.0.1 and port to 47806

Start ADSB# first 


then Start Virtual radar which will show incoming activity


To see the data in map format click on the link to http://127.0.0.1:VirtualRadar. The following is the map after running for a few hours showing the airplane tracks; not surprisingly all to the east of me. Currently 39 planes are being tracked:-


Looking back at the virtualradar window the above "connection" can now be seen listed:-


Comparing the plots produced by the same data using Virtualradar and PlanePlotter Planeplotter captures more planes, but it is not free!
