the weather updates every 10 mins
I think it is removed 5 mins after missing an update
I like your idea of  a time stamp, or age marker

as Graham indicates if you have a transponder ModeAC or ModeACS you need to set the option for 'filter'

BTW, your PilotAware performance is stunningly good


Thx

Are there any voltage regulators involved here taking battery input and using switch mode regulators ?

This is a Mode-C Proximity detection using relative altitude
Can you share the settings on your configure page

I think it is our fault
We are seeing the icao code occasionally reset on installing updates

Hi Joe

Your HEX-ID is not right, I just checked on GINFO and it should be

mainly it falls in the geeky "if the data's there i'd like to play with visualise it camp"
I think that captures it nicely

that's great, but it'd be good to aggregte the data ie for a single ICAO code but over all time
its interesting information, but not in our core competence to identify how well the cellular coverage is over geographical areas
The main reason for this, is that we have no ability to influence a change, and nobody is paying for the engineering work to implement ;-)

ATOM stations on the other hand, we can influence, and try to fill in any potential gaps

Technical Support / Re: Dipole Antenna Fell off - options forward?

I think dual antenna means 2 869 and 1090
you need to change selection to the one you want if only one is needed

Hi Marioair
You are right, we have all of the technology to do what you describe
In fact one of the first things I want to do, is to extend VECTOR, to provide an air to air picture, as opposed to the current air to ground
My speculation is that this will highlight the very poor performance of cap1391 devices when receiving via a 7cm antenna versus a stacked dipole on the ground

Now to cellular, at the moment I believe releasing any of this data would be highly toxic, and would serve no benefit whatsoever to us, and risks alienating the cellular providers. Having said that, I would probably be more amenable to providing this data to the cellular providers directly (in confidence), but releasing publicly, is a definite no-no

Hi Sean
I haven’t had any other requests for hdmi sound output
I guess it is technically feasible, but what would it be used to drive ?
What equipment do you intend to connect?
Thx

"Aircraft Transmit Speed" controls whether you emit a position report over the RF link

I was wondering if this also affected the position report to iGRID in the same manner, which there is no reason that it should

What do you have your "Aircraft Transmit Speed" set to ?

If I recall correctly, I think we only send data to you when you are sending data (position reports) to us,

Hi Lee,

Bearing in mind I am asking this question in the context of iGrid v Mode S 3D:

Does that mean if I have it set to 20kts I won't receive any PAW alerts until 20kts or is it only GSM data I won't receive? Obviously I will not transmit data until 20kts.

Need to double check
Thx
Lee

in screenshot above uptime is 15 minutes and it shows connected, but no traffic... so GSM was orange

Hi Alex

I just had a thought on this.
