In this article, we will be discussing the comparison between the weather data received from SiriusXM and ADS-B. We will also be reviewing the Garmin GDL52 with SiriusXM weather service.
- Kevin from Alaska is in Texas to escape the cold weather
- Today, we will be flying Miles' Cherokee Six and comparing the weather data received from SiriusXM and ADS-B
- Our mission is to take Kevin to Harlingen, Texas and compare the weather data received from different sources
- The Cherokee Six is equipped with an Aspen panel, Garmin 530 WASP, and STIK 55X autopilot
- The airplane also has air conditioning which is not common in most planes
Comparing SiriusXM and ADS-B Weather Data:
- SiriusXM provides more detailed weather data, even when sitting on the ground
- ADS-B takes a second to download the data
- SiriusXM provides storm cell tops and direction, which ADS-B does not
- SiriusXM reached out to the author on a day when ADS-B data was not sufficient and saved the day
Flight Plan and Route:
- Flight plan is from KHYA to San Antonio, then to Three Rivers, Corpus Christi, and finally Harlingen
- The computer suggested a route that is 50 miles out of the way, but it is based on IFR regulations and safety protocols
- The GDL52 with SiriusXM weather service provides more detailed weather data, which is beneficial for pilots
- The flight plan is based on safety regulations and is suggested by the computer
- SiriusXM weather service saved the day on a previous flight and is highly recommended for pilots.

Assembling a Stratux ADS-B receiver for in flight weather
How to Build an Affordable Weather and Traffic Receiver for Your Aircraft
Getting live weather and traffic updates while flying can be costly with commercially available options. However, building your own device using readily available components can be a more affordable solution. In this article, we will demonstrate how to build a device that provides live weather and traffic updates using one of the popular navigation panels.
- Raspberry Pi 2 computer
- Radio kit
- Micro SD card
- Wi-Fi USB component
- Antenna, coax, and connector
- Blue stick
1. Load software onto the micro SD card using a laptop or computer that accepts the card.
2. Install the SD card into the Raspberry Pi 2 computer.
3. Insert the radio and Wi-Fi components into the USB ports of the computer.
4. Connect the power cable to the computer.
5. Optional: attach a battery pack to the bottom of the computer for portability.
6. Package the assembled components using velcro or tie wraps.
7. Position the antenna to pick up a signal and connect to the navigation panel via Wi-Fi.
- More affordable than commercially available options.
- Requires only two components to purchase.
- Can be assembled easily without dip switches, software options, or soldering.
Building your own weather and traffic receiver for your aircraft can be a cost-effective solution using readily available components. By following the instructions provided by Christopher Young on the Stratus link found on homebuilthelp.com, you can have a device that competes with commercially available units. It provides live weather and traffic updates via the FAA's free weather broadcast transmitted through ATSB signal towers. Assembling the device is simple and requires only a Raspberry Pi 2 computer and a radio kit, along with other components that can be easily obtained. With this device, you can have up-to-date weather and traffic information while flying without breaking the bank.

2. Create a boolean attribute: Set a boolean attribute to true anytime the weather is below 60 degrees at night.
3. Use the boolean attribute in an audience: Use the audience to target visitors whose temperature at night is below 60 degrees.
4. Use the audience in a manual action: Pass the visitor's email address as well as the city and state they belong to in the action.
5. Send a targeted email: Use the visitor's information to send them a targeted email.
