Reports or text logs from adsbexchange data stream

Is there a way to use VRS to make reports or logs from adsbexchange data stream when used as a "receiver" in VRS.
VRS reports work great using my local receiver, but tried this when using adsbexchange set as receiver and the report function did not produced a report with real data.
I would like to use VRS with adsbexchange data stream as a "VRS Receiver configuration" to make reports or log files from other locations than my "home" location.
Can't seem to find a way to do this so far or find a solution
Thanks

Reports are built from the data in BaseStation.sqb, you would need to configure the database writer plugin to record to the ADSBExchange receiver. You might want to use a separate BaseStation.sqb for that one, just in case it gets a bit overwhelming and you want to switch back to just your current receiver.

Obviously this will mean that you won't be recording your own receiver in BaseStation.sqb any more.
