The newest addition to my Raspberry Pi Projects, ADS-B Flight Tracking.
With open-source software, overhead and or nearby aircraft can be tracked through the ADS-B signals the planes transmit. Currently the flight data is sent to 6 different flight Tracking websites. (Contributor ID provided when possible.)
My newest project was to create a self-hosted Minecraft server. This server is publicly accessible. Feel free to login and have a look around. At the moment, this is for the Desktop version of Minecraft only.
My newest project during the COVID Quarantine has been focused on NOAA Satellite images. I recently came across a Reddit article that talked about how an RTL-SDR dongle can download weather images from passing NOAA Satellites. I was very interested and had to try it. I found several articles from different people explaining their setup with Raspberry Pi units and how they automated the process.
Ending results: My Raspberry Pi with an RTL-SDR dongle and a small (currently outdoor) antenna, captures and decodes the broadcasts from the passing Weather Satellites.
It’s still a work in progress, this is a rough working setup at the moment.

I am contributing an audio feed to a 3rd party NOAA Weather Radio iOS App and two Websites. To help, I started capturing the local NOAA weather broadcast in my area to stream to the developer’s server and be available on their app.
For one of my tech projects during the COVID-19 world quarantine, I migrated to using PFSense as my Home & Home Lab Router. The purpose of this project was to seperate my Home Lab from my Home Network through V-LANs and to also have better Firewall control for my Internet facing services. This has worked out very well and I am happy with the network control and results of this project.
