Hi Bob
Thanks for your encouragement.
Its the whole team who also need to be thanked
It is very encouraging for me to know that EASA and others in Europe are very supportive of what we are all doing as you will all hear soon.
Sometimes head and brick wall come to mind but then we get encouraging posts like this from you.


Keith and the Team

It also seems to be a combined minimum over all the ports on the Anker, as plugging in something into another port will wake them all, is that right?

Hi J

Yes that is correct one user has used an EBAY sourced MOOD LED to give a quiescent load which seemed to work

Thanks for your help on this

Thanks to everyone who responded. We have an industry forum with the CAA in July so if you have anything that you want me to put forwards please post here

EASA General Aviation Forum
Hi All

I just posted the following on the EASA General Aviation Forum to let a wider audience know about our exciting new software release next week.
The EASA General Aviation Forum is worthy of being supported as it provides a genuinely international forum to share your views. In this case how we should all share our views to help to shape genuinely interoperable Electronic Conspicuity for all in Europe at low cost which is the PilotAware mission.

Perhaps you should let your views be known to help us all move forward?

My Original 20100 units are model no A1271 and the latest one bought last week from Amazon is also an A1271 so no clue there



Latest News / Stop Press - Glideslope to Mode-S3D Launch
« on: June 12, 2019, 04:18:53 pm »
Important News

Here is the announcement, for which I know many of you have been waiting. After over 12 months of development, testing, rework and validation Mode-S/3D will soon be available for all to use.

In a nutshell, Mode-S/3D uses the same OGN-R Rebroadcast network that we have all been using over the last 2 years to see gliders, to uplink MLAT data so that we can, at last, see Mode-S traffic on our screens as a target with a bearing.

We are finalising the documentation and processes for the launch but all being well, we are planning for this to be next weekend 22nd June. This is a significant software release that includes a new Operating System. As this involves significant changes this, unfortunately, cannot be done by .PGP memory stick update. Consequently, a new manual software update will be required. If you are not able to do this PilotAware will be providing a software update service which includes a new SD card.

Changes in the latest software version.

•   The ability to plot Mode-S targets onto a screen or suitable Flight Bags. Please see more on this by clicking the link below.

Bearingless Targets.
•   Improvements in the audio messages.
•   Improved tracking of Mode-C altitude transitions
•   Anti-aliasing of Mode-A->Mode-C signatures
•   Elimination of Mode-A via Mode-S messages

WiFi Disconnects.
Significant improvements to reduce disconnects of Android and iOS devices.
Improved message handling between EFB electronic flight bags.

Flight Data Recording.
Additional logging for diagnostic and offline analysis added

Bluetooth Audio (Rosetta/RPi3).
A beta release of PilotAware audio over Bluetooth tested with a number of compatible devices.

Software Update over Ethernet. 
Future upgrades of the Software and The Operating System will be done automatically over the internet via a wired link to a router. Upgrades via memory stick remain available for minor upgrades.

Software Start Up. 
The time that the software takes to boot from start has been significantly, reduced

Bug Fixes and Minor Changes
In addition, the website will be having a revamp including the introduction of a PilotAware Knowledge Base

We will be introducing Mode-S/3D as a Nationwide extension of the trial allowing all PilotAware users to opt in by downloading the latest Software. Before releasing the software, we will be requesting that you read and understand how Mode-S/3D works its operation and its limitations.

To learn more please have a look at the following document.

It won’t be long now. Thank you for your patience.

Fly Safe

Hi Mike
Announcement imminent

When we first recommended the ANKER 20100 it was perfect as were all ANKER products. However, we heard about this a couple of weeks ago. It seems to be that the 20100 is getting too clever and assumes that the device is fully charged because it isn't drawing enough current.

I immediately bought another 20100 (1 have 3) from Amazon but it didn't show the problem. I have lots of other smaller ANKER units including the smaller snickers bar sized one which works great. The problem is that we have no control over ANKER products.

Anyone listening in please let us know which ones work for you ANKER or otherwise. I will remove the 20100 from the recommended list

Nice One Paul
Perhaps you will put one up in the IOW when you return.
I'll reserve you some bits


General Discussion / Re: AeroExpo 2019
« on: June 12, 2019, 02:34:09 pm »
Hi All

Unfortunately, we don't exhibit at Aero Expo as a stand is well beyond our budget. However, we will be going so if you bump into Ashley or me then please say hello. Looking at the program there seems to be a healthy number of seminars on Electronic conspicuity including UAvionix, CAA and Trig. Well worth going along to for the Q&A sessions. Unfortunately, we were not asked never mind.

Regarding Software, we will be very shortly making an announcement. Just waiting for the ink to dry.

@CAT If you want to part with money then after the software launch all New Rosettas will have the new Software loaded as standard

Hi Simon

One workaround is to add another load on the second port. This shows that it is the Anker being too smart and allows you to use the longer lead.

IMPORTANT CAP1777 And Why You Should All Respond And Encourage Others To Respond As Well

CAP1777 is the latest document issued by the CAA in their process towards the goal of mandating Electronic Conspicuity at 1090Mhz in all airspace across the UK. As Southampton joins the queue to grab more Class G airspace there is more evidence that sports aviation in the UK is under an increasing threat.  Please take the time to have a look at CAP1777 and respond by the closing date of May 25th 2019. Silence will be seen as acceptance.

There are 6 questions to be answered some open some closed so please let your views be known.

The following document has been produced as a single interpretative precis. This may not be your view but is provided to help frame your response.

Perhaps your other favourite forum(s) should be informed of the imminent deadline and importance of a response.

Here is the document
