Troubleshooting PiAware MLAT Results

If you are using PiAware, and your MLAT results suddenly are not appearing on your dump1090 local web interface. Check your MLAT configuration.

SSH into your PiAware device and issue the following commands:

sudo piaware-config -mlatResultsFormat "beast,connect,localhost:30104 beast,connect,feed.adsbexchange.com:30005"
sudo piaware-config -restart

This tells PiAware to send MLAT results to ADS-B exchange, as well as the default local port.

  1. Can someone confirm this resolved the issue? I saw a comment here from someone having trouble, but it has since disappeared.

    It’s possible the curly braces {} are not necessary.

  2. Hi Dan,
    should have spotted the typo. DOH! Took curly brackets {} out and …. Im pleased to say Purple plans are now back. Cheers. Mark

    1. Great! Yes, I should have spotted that typo as well. Ok, I’ve removed the {} from the text above, so I think we’re good now!

      Thanks,
      Dan

    still not working for me. i have reformatted the sd card and installed a clean install of piaware and adsb exchange… i give up .. what it is, is what it is…. done waiting for a fix…. thanks dan for a great site… still one of the best

  4. Ok, so your issue is the excessive log messages? that’s a completely different issue.

    I think one of two things is happening here. Most likely (due to geography perhaps, lack of air traffic or lack of nearby feeders) your station is generating few MLAT positions and the idle timeout on connections may be set too low on my end.

    The other possibility is that the FA MLAT client drops the connection after a certain period with no MLAT results.

    You are still able to see your MLAT results locally on your dump1090 web interface, right?

    If I change the default timeout on this end, can you tell me if it makes a difference?
