OGN-R PilotAware / Re: Reduction of (number of) antennas
« Last Post by Paul_Sengupta on Today at 03:12:55 pm »
What's the reason you particularly want to get rid of one antenna? The ADS-B antenna can be fairly unobtrusive, just a quarter wave ground plane or a half wave dipole (maybe end fed like on the PAW) would work ok given that it's out in the clear. A colinear ADS-B antenna might extend the receive range from 150 miles to 200 miles, but I don't think the object is to get that sort of range!

I 100% agree with Tim on that one. Standards are there for a reason

so option (2) it is then?

Well enough to know that he's refused to do (1) in the past!  :o ;D

I would recommend the 3b over the 3b+ it uses less power
Thx

Thanks Lee.   I have PM'd you details of my new Pi MAC address to swap it over.

After dismantling my PAW and trying it on the bench I found that it worked,  and then it didn't,  and then it did.  Turns out that the Micro USB power socket worked some of the time but a little wiggle of the power lead and it would stop again .  I guess with flying and vibration the solder has weakened or cracked and so its not making proper connection.

Have got a new Pi which works fine now.

what is your preference?
1) work with Sd to get them to accept an extension of GDL
2) work with Sd to get them to accept dual format?

how well do you know Tim D?

I understand this, it shapes a choice is setting up a PAW, no criticism of PAW intended. If the maximum functionality for bearingless targets is a priority, and it would be for me, then select PAW as navigation source.

Hi Steve,
thanks, understood. In order to get bearingless targets over GDL90, there needs to be some co-development between ourselves and the EFB provider. GDL90 provides the capability of user-defined messages, we can construct a 'bespoke' message to describe bearingless targets, but there is a requirement for the EFB to decode that message correctly.
 
Thx

There is no mechanism for bearingless targets over gdl90 I’m afraid

That makes a serious hole in PAW functionality. Thanks, filed for future reference.

This is a limitation of gdl90, not PAW.
The protocol does not support bearingless targets

So should I try selecting EasyVFR?

I’ve posted a feature request to SD. please add your support to it to Timothy listens!

Thanks Lee.
Do you know in Skydemon why there’s an option for GDL compatible devices and a separate one for pilotaware. Is it because of the fact paw transmits both Flarm and GDL and Skydemon can then listen on both? This is in context of being able to receive ADL weather over GDL at the same time as all the PaW data.

In Skydemon, the choices are mutually exclusive - either/or.
If I recall correctly - EasyVFR is an enable, so both can be enabled at the same time

Thx
