Local FLARM Receiver (Optional)

Air!Squitter Rear Panel

Air!Squitter can optionally be equipped with a RTL-SDR stick, and by that serve some SDR applications. It comes with preinstalled software from the Open Glider Network (see http://wiki.glidernet.org/start). Air!Squitter is able to include the results of this receiver into its own database and show FLARM aircraft together with ADS-B and MLAT data in a common map. However, in order to work correctly, some steps have to be done after installation of the hardware:

  • Check that GPS is stable (Status -> GPS)
  • Create the configuration file for OGN receiver (Settings -> External Sources Settings -> Create Configuration for Integrated Open Glider Net Receiver)
    • Select a location name according to the naming rules
    • Enable bias current if you are using Jetvision's Active Diapason Antenna
    • Enable reception of local results

Create Config File

  • Watch the incoming messages from OGN receiver (Status -> Local FLARM Receiver Connection)


Incoming FLARM results

In case of troubles, disable and re-enable the OGN receiver part within Settings -> External Sources Settings -> Local FLARM Receiver Data Reception -> Save
