It's definitely a diversion. I used to DX back when I was a kid and would pick up stations from around the world. ADS-Bing is sort of like that.

As for Trev mounting the antenna, I imagine all he needs to do is plant a shovel in the nearest snowdrift and zip-tie it....

Whilst the sim was down I made an ADS-B antenna, copying from this Youtube vid:

I hooked it up to an inexpensive NESDR mini ADS-B dongle and Dump-1090 software. Once it was installed in the attic, I got over 150 miles coverage and I'm roughly at sea level.

A recommended diversion for any sim builder, if the flying has to cease for any reason!

Hi Folks.

Before I buy the NGXu for my sim build, can anyone help with the 737 cockpit flight displays?

Can the PFD, ND, Engine Primary and Engine secondary, all be clicked into pop-up's and dragged, even to a separate MSWindows screen?

Thanks if anyone could check this out!

Have you figured a way to mount the antenna on your igloo yet?  Or just going with the Sled Dog house mounting option?
Actually,  I have found a way to mold an ICE Bracket, It should hold it.  I pack snow around it to keep it level and pee on it. This then freezes and makes a good mounting option.

Thanks for asking.

That's an awesome solution Cheif Yellow Snow of the North :)

I was just notified Flightaware has approved me for a Free Piaware, they will ship it soon.  Like Skibo said,  Probably because I live so far from civilization, they need coverage LMFAO.

I have to try to keep up with arriving parts.

Yesterday I received the aft glareshields and front kick plate for the ACES seat.  Forward Glareshields should arrive next week.

Most of the panels for the left avionics console arrived, but I need to source switches and build them up.

I'll get pictures up soon
