Penicuik Weather - Aircraft Tracking

The site tracks aircraft in the vicinity of the station using a radio receiver, along with RTL1090 decoding the Mode-S ADS-B data stream (1090.000MHz) that is transmitted by most passing aircraft.

The data is also shared with several other aircraft data services such as the popular FlightRadar24 and PlanePlotter.

There are many amateur aircraft data sharing services around, and this ADS-B Flowchart provided by SonicGoose provides and excellent reference of how many common modules and applications can be connected.

The mapping below is provided by the Station's VirtualRadarServer, fed from its radio receiver.
