Anyone experience with Stratux?
Yes, it works well in the US where there's the 978 traffic rebroadcast.
It works here but is limited in that it only receives ADS-B (1090). If you don't care about the official case, you can put a single band one together for about £50. If you want the official case and want dual band then it's about £75, or more if you want the new low power receivers (though the new low power UAT receiver won't do Flarm, it's 978 only).
I have never tried the Flarm version, as I understand it, it's some sort of code overlay on top of an older version of the Stratux software. Not sure how happy Flarm would be for people to be decoding it for free in the air, and of course Flarm change their code every year or so, so it would then have to be re-hacked.
PilotAware is also based on a Raspberry Pi, does pretty much what the Stratux does and obviously also receives P3i, and the rebroadcast stuff in the UK. Nothing stopping you setting up rebroadcast stations across Europe though!

Possibly because there aren't that many puddle jumpers broadcasting ADS-B at the moment.
