Having at last got round to replacing the PAW radio card I think the station is back up and transmitting as well as receiving.

Hi Peter,
Is it possible for my station to be receiving PAW signals etc but not uplink?
I have had reports that my station does not show up on Skydemon.
Its definitely receiving PAW and ADSB OK.
Can I check this somehow without flying?

Regards Brian

My site is down, this is probably due to a series of power cuts and reconnections over a period of  about 30 minutes. I guess that maybe the SD card has been corrupted? sometimes the power only came back on for a few seconds. I have tried re booting the router and the station but nothing. Cant get an ip address or anything
The station is mounted up on a roof, so I want to be prepared when I go up there. Can I prepare a new SD card with the latest software somehow? What else should I look for?

Thanks Brian

Looks like my Funke is now doing what it should. This is a Beta version first flight Funke getting its messages from PAW.*&Station=*&start=1622289600&end=1622300400

Thanks Lee

Hi Clive
Agree that last posts should really be moved. I have ground tested a beta software release which Lee produced. This has extra message types Including GPVTG and now appears to be performing correctly. No flights yet just a short ground run.
Funke keep saying that the transponder only needs the GPRMC data though.

Funky with 6.3 software can do 9600 bd

I think that’s from the Garmin 396 manual

Hi Lee,
I’m afraid I don’t know for certain. Michael at Funk’s has only mentioned the need for the GPRMC data set. Nothing else mentioned.
Would it be possible to build a beta with the GPVTG messages as well?
The Funke can do 9600bd

Is it possible that the FTDI converter is supplying the messages at the wrong voltage?

Just a friends thought.

Is it possible for the RS232 converter to corrupt the signal somehow?

Hi Clive,
I honestly dont know what to think. The garmin is uncertified I guess, I really hope it's not a problem with data from PilotAware.
Maybe Lee can comment?
Certainly my GPRMC messages from PAW to the transponder contain position and track data.
I have yet to hear anymore from Funke.

Regards Brian

Apologies, you’re correct.
Don’t know what I was seeing the second time I looked at the track replay.

Hi Clive
Take all posted above back. It’s a mode S track only I think

Hi Clive,
That certainly looks much better behaviour. I assume the 396 is also an un approved gps?
Does it only send the GPRMC messages? And you just used NMEA settings on the Funke?
I don’t suppose you had anyone monitoring via PilotAware and SkyDemon?

Regards Brian


Just to quickly show the difference between the Funke and Trig transponders:-  This is Geoffreys Trig equipped plane . He was flying in loose formation with me. His track is displayed perfectly on the ADSB exchange site.

This is my plane flying at the same time with the latest FunkeTRT800 and software 6.3

Its easy to spot the difference!!

Regards Brian
