A reminder that the MUUG online meeting will be on BBB this evening...

The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting online, on Tuesday, October 18th, at 7:30pm:

    Tracking Aircraft with an RTL-SDR and a RaspberryPi

    Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast, or ADS-B, is a modern
    aircraft safety system that broadcasts an aircraft's
    identification and position data to other aircraft and ground
    stations. Using an off-the-shelf RTL-SDR receiver and a
    RaspberryPi, we can decode these messages to track aircraft in our
    vicinity. Wyatt will show how to install the dump1090 software
    used to decode the messages, and the different third-party
    aggregation sites that collect ADS-B information to provide
    real-time flight tracking around the world.

    This will once again be an online meeting. Stay tuned to our
    muug.ca home page for the official URL, which will be made
    available about a half hour before the meeting starts. (Reload the
    page if you don't see the link, or if there are issues with

The group normally holds its meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of 
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and 
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a 
MUUG member to attend.
