ADSB# Quick Start

Prog (Youssef), and Ian are still tweaking the code for ADSB# so I thought I’d post a preliminary version of the Quick Start for ADSB#. It should stay 99% the same as far as installation and configuration.

I’ve included configuration with Virtual Radar Server, and I’ll be adding Plane Plotter in the next day or so. ASDBScope instructions in the latest version.

    One great advantage of PlanePlotter is a possibility integrating data from sources like ACARS, HFDL, ADS-B. (is not difficult obtain data from radio-scanners)
    But licence requires one small annual fee.
    Do you have any idea, how to integrate these data sources to excellent freeware
    AdsbScope ????
    TNX and GL

    The QuickStart only covers configuration oc ADSB# into ADSBCscope. For information reguarding other data sources, the ptoject’s Homepage would be a better source of information.

    I’ve spent three weeks trying to get this SDR soft ware to work! There are TONS of “how to” and “software downloads” on the Internet, and only after hours of “diddling” with software options, have I FINALLY gotten it to work. With a LOT of effort, I finally discovered just what exactly is necessary to make it work on Windows XP Pro.

    BUT nowhere can I find a “User’s Guide”! How do I set (and what do they do) the various “windows” and “functions” on the display? I can receive various FM radio broadcasts, aircraft VORs, police, etc., but con’t have a clue as to the other options.

    I AM an experienced computer user and a retired Aerospace EE, so kindly don’t tell me (like the company I bought my dongle from) that “You’re not doing something right!”

    Em…this software is running on my computer, I got 50 frames per sec, but I don’t know how to find the data-files recorded in my computer.
    Anybody can help me?

    The data isn’t saved in a file, it’s streamed via TCP to whichever ADS-B decoder you’re running (PlanePlotter, Virtual Radar, ADSBScope, or other). Or you can stream it to a central hub such as

    ADSB# is just a front end to receive and decode the raw packets via the dongle, and then act as a TCP server to forward them for decoding.

    Quick and easy to get up and running. The quick start guide made it very straight forward. Well done, thank you for sharing it with us!

    Is there a way to save the ADSB# config?
    not that there is much to save
    it would be nice.

    thanks for a good stable program!
