Hi! I'm new on this forum and I have sought answers to my questions without success.
Actually I use RTL1090 to "scope" ADS-B signal on my PC and share data (with a Virtual Machine on Win10), but I have a Mac and, I try to "scope" and share data on a Mac, unsuccessfully for now...
I try ModeSMixer and PF Client but in both cases without success (I'm unable to install ModeSMixer; with PF Client the problem is configuration software to share data).
However on a Mac I have a software to share data and all is ok...but is for another "portal"...
Can recommend me where to find a solution? Ah, I have a Dongle-USB...
Many Thank!
Antonio

Hi Antonio,

ModeSDecoder is probably what you want for native RTL decoding on a mac, then you can connect the new PF Client to the output of this.

Thanks! But my problem is installation of ModeSDeco, i think that my Mac don't have permission "root" with my account...it's possible?

Now my problem isn't resolved and I would try to use PF Client software with 1090Mhz.exe on Windows 10, but I can not find the right configuration: does anyone know how to do?

Do you know what format is output from 1090mhz.exe ?

If you download our windows client you can try connecting it up.

No, I don't know output format...I think is RAW on port 30003. I have tried to connect my windows client, but unsuccessfully
Do you have a link to the program 1090Mhz you are using and I will see if I can work it out for you.

For Windows we mainly use ModeSDeco and then connect that up to our client. Seems to work the best

I have already tried to use ModeSDeco on Win but I don't know if I have used correct procedure: here is a screen of my prompt.

I've just looked up as not familiar with RTL1090.

It looks like it outputs on port 31001 and the format is Beast Binary format. Could you configure your PFClient to connect to this port and that format?

It's possible to view map with callsign of aircraft?

No problem.

The config page still looks like it is serial though which is very strange!! However you are seeing planes!

We aren't putting callsigns on the maps just yet, it could happen in the future though!
