I've been to https://goo.gl/maps/oPsSXLmVd712 back in 2011. Was great. Plan on being in a meat coma for a few days.

Looks good! I will see if I can convince some colleagues to go there. Thanks, @GrueMaster

Hello friends! How are you?

My CR-10S has been offline for almost a month (clogged and no time to work on it), haven't used my 3DP-17 in several months.

On a non-printing note, My wife found Ikea (new entertainment center wall cabinets, new wardrobe for the livingroom, new gaming table, etc). Also, I quit my job at Intel and left for a startup (run by former Intel managers). This was the first full-time week (I've been helping with infrastructure and development in my spare time until capital financing became available). Kind of excited about it.

Oh, and my youngest son has finally come through on his threats; I will be a grandfather in early February.

Overall, it has been a busy summer.

I finally found the time to setup my own receiver for Flightradar24! I did some testing first with the small antenna that came with the DVB-T stick from my office and got already signals from 10-15 planes in a range of ~40 km.

I then printed a antenna mount for the dedicated 1090 MHz antenna and a wall mount for the Raspberry Pi and mounted everything in the attic. That improved the range to ~300 km and 80-100 planes :-)

I would rather say I am contributing to a very nerdy plane spotter tool :-)

If you run a receiver for them, you get a free FR24 Business Subscription which gives you more filters and stuff. I like to use their site to check if the plane, that serves the flight I am currently waiting for, is on time ;-)
