ADSB# Plugin for SDRSharp

Update and Note: This plugin appears to be now dead. If you are simply looking for the ADSB# standalone program (not the plugin), it is located in the SDR# install folder from

A user by the name of darkscout.rm on the SDRSharp Yahoo group has posted version 3 of his ADSB# plugin for SDRSharp. The main purpose of this plugin is that it allows the waterfall to viewed at the same time as decoding, which may help with visually tuning the gain settings, or experimenting with ways to block out out of band interference. He has also added in a 1-bit error recovery by brute force option, which is used in dump1090 and may improve decode performance.

ADSB# is a standalone program to receive ADS-B signals and my ADS-B plugin does the same but from within SDR#.

Download the plugin from the files section of the SDRSharp Yahoo groups. (You will need to join the group with a Yahoo account first). Follow the installation instructions in the readme file carefully. You will need to open the “SDRSharp.exe.config” file in your SDRSharp folder with a text editor and add a new line as explained in the installation instructions. Ensure the sample rate in the SDRSharp configure box is set to 2.0MSps exactly (NOT 2.048MSps). If you don’t see an option for 2.0MSps, replace “SDRSharp.RTLSDR.dll” in your SDRSharp folder with the version provided in the plugin zip file.
