NAME

       rtl_adsb - a simple ADS-B decoder

DESCRIPTION

       Uses  a  re-purposed  DVB-T  receiver  as  a  software defined radio to
       receive  and  decode  ADS-B  data.     Written   by   Kyle   Keen   and
       incorporated in the osmocom rtl-sdr project.

       Automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast, ADS-B, consists of position
       and other status data transmitted by aircraft in support of air traffic
       control in order to improve safety of flight.

       Much  software  is  available  for  the RTL2832. Most of the user-level
       packages rely on the librtlsdr library which comes as part of the  rtl-
       sdr codebase. This codebase contains both the library itself and also a
       number of command line tools such as rtl_test,  rtl_sdr,  rtl_tcp,  and
       rtl_fm.  These  command  line  tools  use  the  library to test for the
       existence of  RTL2832  devices  and  to  perform  basic  data  transfer
       functions to and from the device.

       Because  most  of  the  RTL2832  devices  are  connected using USB, the
       librtlsdr library depends on the libusb library to communicate with the
       device.

USAGE

       With  a  suitable antenna for receiving the 1090 MHz signal attached to
       the rtl-sdr supported device, this program will output the data decoded
       from that signal.

SYNOPSIS

       rtl_adsb [-R] [-g gain] [-p ppm] [output file]

OPTIONS

       -d device_index (default: 0)

       -V verbove output (default: off)

       -S show short frames (default: off)

       -Q  quality  (0: no sanity checks, 0.5: half bit, 1: one bit (default),
       2: two bits)

       -e allowed_errors (default: 5)

       -g tuner_gain (default: automatic)

       -p ppm_error (default: 0)

       tfilename
               (a '-' dumps samples to stdout)
               (omitting the filename also uses stdout)

EXAMPLES

       Streaming with netcat:
                rtl_adsb | netcat -lp 8080

                while true; do rtl_adsb | nc -lp 8080; done

       Streaming with socat:
                rtl_adsb | socat -u - TCP4:sdrsharp.com:47806
