RevFlight tracker

With a simple RTl-SDR it's possible to receive flight "beacons" which a commercial aircraft emits. There is software which in combination with an DVB-t receiver can show the planes flying in the area.


1. Connect your DVB-T receiver 2. git clone git@github.com:MalcolmRobb/dump1090.git 3. Run `make` (note that you need to have rtl-sdr installed)

Note: On Arch use the dump1090-git package from the AUR


1. Run ./dump1090 --interactive --net 2. Open http://localhost:8080/ in your browser to see an interactive google map
