Re: Warflying with Kismet

Outdoor antennae on a plane present a pretty good windload (area x windspeed). Aside from the cool DIY factor, cantennas often aren't very good antenna, they are often the wrong size (it seems I read somewhere that Dinty Moore Beef Stew cans are much better than Pringles, wavelength-wise). It would ...

Re: Getting kismet to work with speech

Your config at a glance looks good. Speech is off on the server and drone, and on in the UI. Does sound otherwise work on this machine, not muted, etc?

man gpsd

I haven't tried Ubuntu specifically, but I use Sidux, a Debian variant. I use a USB GPS, and usually have to run something like

Code: Select all

gpsd /dev/ttyUSB0

Re: Warflying with Kismet

That might have worked better if your hand was not blocking a good portion of the antenna!
You are incorrect, sir. The actual antenna is a dipole at the end of the stick. Fleshy material in the path of the reflector is a small percentage. It does not block the focal point but a tiny bit.

Original pics are in the first sentence of the first post, I still am waiting for pics of the last fly from the pilot. There's not many pics of gear this time. Antennas were handheld both times, second time was much more convenient. Don't do this with Netstumbler, it transmits. The first time I held...

bump.. well, two years later, I got go to warflying again. Same pilot, a slighly newer Cessna 172 (this one was a 1971) and a smaller antenna. The first trip I used a parabolic antenna handheld (only do this with Kismet, because it does not transmit). This trip I used a little 5.5 DB magmount. The p...

I am unfortunate (for wardriving), in that I live in the country, ten miles away from the nearest Pepsi machine (and that's a town of 200). I commute 15 minutes to a town of 50k. I am fortunate however (for life in general), that I love living in the country, and I can see only three other houses. I...

Re: What RS232/serial to USB adapter to get?

When I used a Garmin serial GPS, I tried a generic RS232/USB adapter, and it worked fine. In the software, I had to point it to /dev/usb0 instead of /dev/ttyS0. On the serial GPS itself, I did the same as littledave: I have and did use my eTrex Legend, go to the setup/interface and tell it to NMEA i...

Re: Plotting my rise on WiGLE

I hope to catch most of the ones I missed GPS lock on this morning on my way home, and will probably pick up a bunch more. I had pretty consistent problems with losing GPS lock while driving for years. Over 6 years, I had about 13,000 APs with no GPS. I went to a USB GPS instead of serial and have ...

Yes, on a simple level, it does it exactly as you described, except not on one "found it" and one "lost it" bit of information. It extrapolates signal strength from all the packets it has, and builds an imaginary (and incorrect) range circle based on the farthest away that it ever saw the AP. Kismet...

Search the forum here for Netstumbler and Google, there are several programs/sites that will put Netstumbler points on maps. I don't know about drawing range circles with Netstumbler, I've never used it. If you are willing to learn about Linux a little, Kismet includes a program called Gpsmap that w...

I'm not personally familiar with R/C stuff, but it seems that some of the car/truck ones I have seen would probably take the extra weight better than anything that flies. A helicopter would indeed be better for warflying, because just hovering up high in a populated area would be better than flying ...

I am a fan of the USGlobalSat BU-353.
I have good luck with these as well. I have two of them, they work well in Linux.

Comcast is also blocking port 1352. That's what port Lotus Notes runs on, and is causing Big Problems (tm) for my work.
