Based on a Raspberry Pi and 6 Wi-Fi dongles. :D
Just got back from a test drive and the Kismet files are rather large :shock:
I have a similar setup, but only 3 wireless cards fixed on 1, 6, and 11. Can you post some updated numbers on what channels you are seeing the most networks on?

Based on wigle's stats tab, 1, 6 and 11 cover something like 75% of 2.4ghz networks. I'd like to see how your data compares.
Great job! I have similar but have frequent power issues. What are you powering it all with? And what is the brand of hub you went with?

I ended up moving off the raspberry pi and moving to a Minnowboard for a little more power, but ultimately I think I could have stayed where I was at with the RP3.
Power took me a while to figure out. I have a 12v lead from the battery in my car come into my setup and then a buck converter steps it down to 5.25v.

I use this hub: ... UTF8&psc=1

I have two usb ports coming off of the buck converter, one has a power lead for my hub, the other to the pi. The pi itself has a data connection to the hub and a gps plugged into it.

I'm also using a 2nd gen pi, i didnt want to deal with the onboard wifi.
