Find your location (lattitude/longitude) to 5 decimal points and your antenna elevation MSL.
Add in the height above ground of the antenna install to the MSL altitude reported by terrain elevation tools.
Visit airplanes.live/myfeed to verify feeder is connected and working.

If you have more than one SDR on the device, label and configure services to use the correct SDR.
Step 1: Stop services that are using the SDRs
sudo systemctl stop readsb
sudo systemctl stop dump978-fa
Step 2: Unplug the 1090 SDR and set the serial for the 978 SDR:
sudo rtl_eeprom -s 978
Step 3: Unplug the 978 SDR and set the serial for the 1090 SDR:
sudo rtl_eeprom -s 1090
Step 4: Unplug both SDRs then plug them back in to make the system aware of the new serials.
A reboot will not completely power cycle the SDR.
sudo rtl_test to check if the serials are assigned correctly to the SDRs.
Step 5: Configure services to use the appropriate SDR by serial.
sudo nano /etc/default/readsb
Add --device 1090
RECEIVER_OPTIONS="--device 1090 --device-type rtlsdr --ppm 0"
Finished with dual SDR setup, reboot!
sudo reboot now
