(not just) for common Single Board Computers

Supported Hardware

Supported Single Board Computers (SBCs)
Most importantly: you need a decent power supply. No, not a USB charger. An actual power supply designed for a single board computer. For most RPi3 class boards you can get away with a 5V/2.5A powersupply. For anything more powerful I recommend a 5V/4A power supply.
  • Raspberry Pi Zero 2, 3a/b, and 4 (actively tested on Zero 2, 3a and 4 - note that Pi Zero W will NOT work)
  • Asus Tinkerboard
  • Libre Computing Le Potato (actively tested) and Renegade (actively tested)
  • Orange Pi 3LTS (tested - no wifi support), 4LTS, 5, and 5plus (actively tested)
  • Banana Pi M5 / M2P
  • Odriod C4
  • Rockpi 4
Supported Software Defined Radios (SDRs)
  • Airspy Mini (expensive, but by far the best supported SDR for ADS-B/1090MHz)
  • Most RTL2838 based USB sticks should work
  • Rtl-Sdr.com v3 and v4 dongle
  • FlightAware pro stick (includes 1090MHz filter and a low noise amplifier)
  • RadarBox green stick (includes 1090MHz filter and a low noise amplifier)
  • RadarBox red stick (includes 978MHz filter and a low noise amplifier -- for UAT978)
  • Nooelec NESDR Smart
Antennas
  • You'll get by far the best results with an outdoor antenna mounted as high as possible (for good visibility to the horizon)
  • Matthias Wirth's wiki has a great summary of some of the antenna options
Filters and LNAs (low noise amplifiers)
  • some of the recommended SDRs above already include filter and LNA
  • especially when investing in the Airspy Mini and a good outdoor antenna, a filtered LNA is a very useful addition. Again, great info on Matthias' wiki
SD cards (well, technically µSD cards)
  • Ideally you want a class 10 card from a name brand. ScanDisk Ultra have been known to be reliable
  • Many other brands also have decent cards - but shy away from anything where the price is too good to be true
