New SBS-1 sharing system

Postby vk4tec » September 10th, 2010, 11:06 am

Hello

I have created a simple .exe file that takes the output of the SBS-1 data stream and inserts data directly into a MySQL server remotely.

You can find the program here

http://tech-software.net/sbs1_targets_remote.exe

(you will need to have base station running)

The data is then available from all sharers in google earth.

Please open this link in Google Earth to view the targets.

I can also make a data stream up for any APRS program as a user interface as well . So don't feel you are tied down to google earth.

Enjoy

Looks like your writing good stuff. You should try your hand a Mlat. I think you have a typo on your website. I think it should be http://tech-software.net

Now, now. Don't abuse the people from the Colonies.

There's been a couple programs now, that while they are EXE files which make it easier, they also end-up being quite large, as they really are a package deal, where the whole package is the program.

Thus, I realize that some people want an EXE file because they like the simplicity, it does come at a price. It consumes a lot of memory.

The concept here is different, in that the program is feeding data directly to the database. It doesn't seem to transfer a lot of data per second, so I assume some throttle is involved, although there are no program notes to describe the program.

I did watch the action with my network sniffer, and it seems lightweight enough.

The author's KMZ download is actually a zip file though (either that or my browser converted it to a zip), and the contents of the zip file are what needs to be entered into GE.

On GE, my feelings are the same. I don't like it. It's aesthically(sp?) unpleasing. I get a grand mal seizure everytime I move the cursor.

Just some notes...

sbs1_targets_remote.exe

+ I used to get the SBS-1 stream and feed it to my LINUX server and then carve it up and insert into MySQL - bandwidth hungry.
+ This time I have pushed the code onto the user, and the only thing that flows is the MySQL statements to the central server
+ This was my first go at PERL to EXE
+ I could not find anyone to install and run PERL for windows and run the script so I made an EXE and deployed that.
+ There is no throttling - well it is actually down to how fast Basestation sends on port 30003, once a second.
+ I can change the google look if you like.
+ The server is a new Mac MIni running openSUSE 11.3
+ Dynamic IP is used from no-ip.org
+ MySQL is used and google earth data served up using CGI calls.
+ Open to improvements.
+ If someone wants to port to other systems let me know.

I'll be delighted if I'm proved wrong, everyone loves a reformed sinner :-)
