Flightradar24, ADSB, Trig tt21 and PAW
« on: May 20, 2020, 11:44:46 pm »
Anyone any ideas please, I have the transponder working with a gps signal from the PAW, I believe the aircraft is showing up on FR live or so I have been told but if I search for my aircraft it is not found on FR is there anything I should have done regarding a setting somewhere ? I have also been told that the symbol which was associated with my aircraft corresponded to something looking like a 737 but listed as private aircraft no photo as it’s not been spotted. Does anyone have a list of definitive settings for both Trig and PAW currently I have the Trig set at 9600 baud NMEA, uncertified, 1090 receiver, no. Thanks in advance. Nick

Is the baud rate of the PAW set to 9600 i.e does the baud rate on the TT21 and the PAW match? As I understand it, the baud rates in this case are not super important but they must match.

Sometimes FR24 need to be told of your aircraft details so they can load it into their database. Easiest way is through their forum:

 https://forum.flightradar24.com/forum/radar-forums/flightradar24-aircraft-database/1783-aircraft-to-be-added-into-flightradar24-aircraft-database

or you can email them using the address on the FR24 webpage.

If you can see the lat/lon on your TT21 screen, then you know it's getting a decent position signal from your PAW.

Hi Nick,

Have you looked at this thread... http://forum.pilotaware.com/index.php/topic,1792.msg19323.html#msg19323

In my experience the most likely scenario is wrong port set in the PAW, difference in Baud rates in the 2 devices, or incorrect wiring.

Ditto, Paul’s comments re FR24.

Best Regards

Peter

Thanks for your replies, no problem with the data getting to the trig unit ADSB data is displayed both paw and trig running at 9600, I’ll try the link for FR and see what they say.

No probs Nick,

Do you have anyone locally who can check your output on their PAW ‘Traffic’ Screen? It probably won’t show on your own. You will need a screenshot confirming the ADSB Status to support your ADSB-Out Mod Application to the BMAA.

Yes, thats what happened last night, a mate watched me both paw and FR, the issue was no record on FR after the event, my mate was supprised when I spoke to him today about the need to register as he never did, so someone must have added the aircraft no doubt a spotter.

Thanks again

Nick.

If your friend watched you on FR24 when you were flying then it sounds like everything is set up properly with your equipment, so that's the difficult bit done  ;D

The FR24 registration is a bit hit or miss. Sometimes aircraft are registered by someone with a tartan thermos flask but other times you have to do it yourself. I sent my details on the FR24 Forum but got a message back saying it had already been done. I can now go into FR24 and play back my flights and get my story straight for the CAA  ;)

I thought Burberry was for Subaru-driving spotty youths who wear baseball caps back to front and hang around outside Halfords. Tartan thermos flasks, on the other hand, are for 60+ couples who drive into the 'country' for a nice cup of tea in a lay-by or for those with parka anoraks who enjoy collecting train or aircraft numbers.....for a reason best known to themselves. A Flying Scotsman + tartan thermos is pure porn for the aforementioned anorak wearers, so they must be related in some way  ;D
