Hi Steve,

Thanks for the reply. I didn't know you could see from the Ground station point of view, good to know.

I've also just found on you can replay a certain time and position and this has shown my flight and some of the other aircraft I visually saw but weren't reported on the EFB.

I had previously downloaded my Trk and viewed it on Aircrew, and that confirmed what I was shown on SkyDemon vs out the window.

Hi All,

Do any of you know of any flight tracking websites where you can look at an replay view and see the aircraft that were picked up there at that time. I have tried FlightRadar24 replay feature, and although it allows you to pick the time and position, and replay the traffic in a certain area, unfortunately 90% of the aircraft that I saw, including ours (which is Mode S and was Tx) do not show up.

Other websites (ADSB exchange, FlightAware) do show my flight once I search on the reg, but not other traffic that was about at that time.

Hi Peter,

Sorry for the delay

Yep, PA28 with mode S, not ES or ADSB. Since day one we have been using the PAW Internal Dipole Antennas. At the moment I have positioned the 869.5 aerial on the left and 1090 aerial on the right, both at the aft of the windscreens, and the GPS antenna on the right - towards the front of the glare shield (see attached photo).  The actual unit is strapped under the instrument panel out of the way of the avionics, hands, feet and the sun.

We operate out of EGHF, and recently a local ground station unit has been online - PWSolent.

The mode C/S settings are set like that as we dont use bearingless targets, Is this not correct?

The date of the most recent missing track was 22/09/21, and was just a bimble around the solent/IoW area.

Although we do have a functioning mode S Garmin Transponder installed, as this is a group aircraft I can't be sure how others are using it.

Hi Pete,

Just been down and got the screenshots. She was at the back of the hangar, but with the doors open so got a GPS lock and the traffic and local ground station was showing in Skydemon.

Other thing I didn't mention before, was on the night of no Track log or traffic in skydemon I would have passed at least four ground stations.

The reg is G-WNTR and the is hex ID is 401D1E

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the reply.

I don't have any screenshots yet, but the software version is the latest official (non beta release).

I'll recheck the Skydemon settings, but I think they looked good post flight, and have been fine before.

The other thing I forgot to mention is the flight isn't showing up on the Vector chart either.

Hi All

I to have had this. Once was on a return or 2nd or 3rd flight in a day, so wondered if being the same date caused an issue for multiple tracks?

Today The Rosetta appeared to connect and Skydemon used it for GPS, but no traffic was showing. One aircraft was a full ADSB equipped HMCG helicopter, that took off at my 12 o'clock 5NM away and closed, passing at same height, 1/2 mile abeam. Nothing on skydemon, logged into Pilotaware interface and it was showing on the Radar screen. But again unfortunately after the flight there appears to be no track file to download.

After the flight I looked on ADSB Exchange for the heli, and it showed its route and the source as ADSB

Any ideas
