    Two instances of pfclient on same computer

    It should be noted we REALLY do not recommend this at all.

    Is this normal for Logs/CPU Usage

    That is more CPU than I would expect in normal operation. That said it looks like it is not connecting to the data feed correctly. That may have a slight increase as it opens and closes the socket. Check that the IP and port are correct. If this is on the same Pi I would use the loopback...

    No the client is not designed to be run on the same system at once and will actually cause you issues.

    No data on Debian 11/x86_64

    Port 30005 is usually the "Beast Binary" format and not AVR. Perhaps change it to that.

    Assigning New Share Code

    If you delete the /etc/pfclient-config.json file and restart the client it will guide you through the setup.

    New - Predicted Range Tool

    It could be that not a lot flies that way to be honest. The predicted range is based on the terrain and what is around. However if no planes fly in that direction we have no way of knowing if that is true or not.

    New - Predicted Range Tool

    Can you share a link to your receiver on the planefinder.net site?

    New - Predicted Range Tool

    The actual measured? Our ADS-B decoder is quite conservative and so you may see more or less aircraft than you are seeing in say Dump1090. We tend to err on the side of caution with correcting of CRC errors and single position reports and so that might be affecting your range. We tend to...

    New - Predicted Range Tool

    No problem, the data comes from our own terrain models that power the 3D functionality in Plane Finder. We used to use HWT but wanted something more integrated into our own toolsets and so we wrote our own!

    We have a new tool to unveil and it can be accessed @ https://planefinder.net/account/receivers Simply sign in (or create an account) and click on one of your shared codes that you want to look at. In the "Coverage Map" section alongside your actual coverage are two new plots to show...

    Is it possible to add a GPS receiver to the system?

    Yes, we thought it wouldn't be far away when we tried it too! We work to around a 50 nanosecond tolerance and GPSD/NTPD cannot get anywhere near close to that!

    Is it possible to add a GPS receiver to the system?

    Sorry that I can't say more. We did spend a lot of time trying to get MLAT with "unknown" third party systems working. Whilst it was working, the level of errors we could see was not acceptable to us so we drew a hard line in the sand on the requirements. You can actually see some of these...

    Is it possible to add a GPS receiver to the system?

    Hello Janos, No sorry there is no public requirements. At the moment we support Plane Finder Radar and Radarcape receivers in our MLAT environment.

    Is it possible to add a GPS receiver to the system?

    Hi Janos, No, this will not make it MLAT compatible with Plane Finder.

    PF Receiver ADS-B LED blinking

    Yes that will do it! Also you can look at a new feature on the https://planefinder.net/account/receivers web page. Make sure you are logged in! If you go to the new Coverage Map tab it will show you what we'd expect you able to receive!! (see attached)
