libhomeradar - easy collect aircraft informations

libhomeradar is an easy to use library for all type of programming language which can use libraries. libhomeradar can connect to different sources to collect aircraft informations arround the world with extended informations, powerful filtering and structured data access.

libhomeradar is written in C and is available for Linux and Windows (2003, XP, NT, Vista).

Currently libhomeradar works with the Kinetic Avionics SBS-1 base station and the Airnav Systems Radarbox.

This example will only connect to the Airnav Systems Radarbox and will send all contacts to our collector ( port 8080)
After 16 contacted aircrafts (limit of the internal queue) the library will stop sending and inserting messages because no callback our queue readout function is registered. A good idea is to add a FULLQUEUE handler.

Data sharing is not legal in every country. Please check this before you enable this option.
You have to assume total responsibility on the consequences of sharing your aircraft contacts
