  • GitHub repo dump1090

    Project mention: Adding CFLAGS to a makefile | | 2021-09-27

    For rtl1090, is this one what you're looking at? I'm not super well-versed in SDR, so I'm not familiar with the state of the software stacks/standard forks/etc. That project built cleanly for me on GCC 11.2.1, though. It actually manually defines -fno-common in its Makefile though, so I'd guess I'm looking at a different version of the software.

  • GitHub repo FlightAirMap

    Project mention: Elon in San Jose for the Plaid Event | | 2021-06-09

    I'm actually the one who made the account lol. Wrote the code for it and consistently adding/changing stuff currently working on diversion detection and circling detection. Here's a run down on the background for anyone interested. Only data really given in the ADSB flight data is latitude, longitude, altitude, and identification and also sometimes if it's on ground which you can't singularly rely on for landing/takeoff detection because of poor ground coverage in many areas so it took me quite a bit of work to figure out. Not to mention Elons jet is also "blocked" (on the FAA LADD list) so it made it harder to source data but theirs certain data providers that don't use FAA data so they don't have to block. Traditional websites like Flightaware and FlightRadar24 you can't identity his jet or even see it so I made the Twitter to make it easier to track. Code is here
