To build a PiAware, you must obtain the following components:
- Raspberry Pi 3
Power supply for the Raspberry Pi
Micro SD Card (size: 8 GB or larger)
Micro SD card reader
- Raspberry Pi 2 can be used but a USB Wi-Fi adapter will be needed to connect to the internet wirelessly
- Raspberry Pi Zero W can also be used
RTL-SDR USB adapter (FlightAware Pro Stick or Pro Stick Plus recommended)
- 我们建议您使用 %1 或更大的 microSD 卡。如果您的计算机没有内置 SD 卡读卡器，您将需要一个 USB SD卡读卡器。
1090 MHz Antenna
- The USB adapter translates the 1090 MHz radio signal into something the computer can understand
- Hint: If you are choosing between the FlightAware Pro Stick and the Pro Stick Plus remember the Plus has an on-board filter that works well in locations that have a lot of radio noise, such as urban environments.
- An indoor antenna can be purchased to start. If using the FlightAware USB adapter be sure the antenna has an SMA connector.
Additionally, you can choose to purchase or find the following items but they are not required.
- Micro SD Card pre-loaded with PiAware
- Skip the step to program the micro SD card
- Raspberry Pi Case
- Protect the Raspberry Pi from shorts
- Ethernet Cable
- This is needed if not using Wi-Fi
- 1090 MHz Signal Filter
- If you live in an urban environment or a location that has a lot of radio noise this will help filter out that excess signal
- 200 joules Surge Suppressor
- The Raspberry Pi is vulnerable to voltage spikes so consider a surge protector to prevent damage.
- If you are in an area known for high voltage spikes consider an 800 joules surge protector
