ADS-B Exchange Setup Scripts ✈️

These scripts aid in setting up your current ADS-B receiver to feed ADS-B Exchange.

Install the adsbexchange feed client

curl -L -o /tmp/
sudo bash /tmp/

Optional: local interface for your data http://192.168.X.XX/adsbx

Install / Update:

sudo bash /usr/local/share/adsbexchange/git/


sudo bash /usr/local/share/tar1090/ adsbx

Update the feed client without reconfiguring

curl -L -o /tmp/
sudo bash /tmp/

Check these two URLs to check if your feed is working

If you encounter issues, please do a reboot and then supply these logs on the forum (last 20 lines for each is sufficient):

sudo journalctl -u adsbexchange-feed --no-pager
sudo journalctl -u adsbexchange-mlat --no-pager

Display the configuration

cat /etc/default/adsbexchange

Changing the configuration

This is the same as the initial installation. If the client is up to date it should not take as long as the original installation, otherwise this will also update the client which will take a moment.

curl -L -o /tmp/
sudo bash /tmp/

Disable / Enable adsbexchange MLAT-results in your main decoder interface (readsb / dump1090-fa)

  • Disable:
sudo sed --follow-symlinks -i -e 's/RESULTS=.*/RESULTS=""/' /etc/default/adsbexchange
sudo systemctl restart adsbexchange-mlat
  • Enable:
sudo sed --follow-symlinks -i -e 's/RESULTS=.*/RESULTS="--results beast,connect,localhost:30104"/' /etc/default/adsbexchange
sudo systemctl restart adsbexchange-mlat

Other device as a data source (networked standalone receivers):


sudo systemctl restart adsbexchange-feed
sudo systemctl restart adsbexchange-mlat

Systemd Status

sudo systemctl status adsbexchange-mlat
sudo systemctl status adsbexchange-feed

Removal / disabling the services:

sudo bash /usr/local/share/adsbexchange/

If the above doesn't work, you may be using an old version that didn't have the uninstall script, just disable the services and the scripts won't run anymore:

sudo systemctl disable --now adsbexchange-feed
sudo systemctl disable --now adsbexchange-mlat
