         Runs great here, and I can see several airplanes over 
eastern Australia.  The only issue I have is that I can only connect 
to one server at a time, meaning I have to choose to see APRS 
stations via the internet, or else airplanes via the internet.

         This is a great idea, though, and any APRSSIG "old-timers" 
can probably remember that I have wanted to be able to do this for years now.

         How well is your receiver working?  How far away have you 
been able to receive signals for ADS-B?

         How long before someone might run this in the US?  I just 
might have to build a cheap tower for that express purpose.
