253flo Posted September 5, 2019 Share Posted September 5, 2019 I am looking to build an airborne wifi survey system. My idea is to run a panel antenna off the side window of the aircraft. The antenna will connect to an LNA, then an RF combiner, then to several alfa cards including a Tetra, each radio will cover only 3-4 channels. The reason for multiple cards is due to the aircraft speed, I do not want to miss APs, clients, or devices. My thought with using multiple alfas is that I can dwell on channels at a higher rate vice having only one radio and hopping on a bunch of channels which will likely lead to missing APs, clients, and devices. The alfas would then run to a usb hub and then to a laptop. I would really like to use PineAP as the SW interface. Questions: -Can I use external wifi cards like an Alfa with a Tetra and PineAP? -Is PineAP a viable UI and capable interface for this setup?
