  • What is going on here?

    I know I have seen it before, but what is the technical explanation?

    • Ive caught similiar pic. I think Napier is using a dongle, and for some reason the data is getting scrambled on landing.

        • Must be some good mountain peaks in my way

          Some defined patterns near the northern SI with straight line holes forming. Good to see some hits out as far as 219nm
          The JPEG you put up shows that you have a great coverage from north to South and I wonder what your secret is (if any) How long is your coax? What antenna? And are you using the Beast? Also with the number of contrails , was it over a few days?

          • Yeah the number of contrails is a bit of a cheat. Probably been capturing since i updated pp a few weeks back. So some look more solid than they are

            5m of lmr400 and a beast. Dpd production 9db gain antenna at about 5m up

              ]Sounds the same as mine with 2 differences; I have 10 Metres of LMR400 and I am too close to the mountains(among them really)

              • QFA28 and LAN8000 Both passing New Zealand this afternoon. T-NZNR1 doing a good job extending the cover to the east

                • I notice that NZCH and NZAA and NZWN all have weather reports, but so nfar Dunedin has none; can this be rectified?

                    Probably not. Only METAR and TAF from the three big ones are broadcast to the international network that service the aviation industry.

                      If the option "Show weather" selected in Settings, quite a few weather points on NZ map are shown, powered by weather.com via google maps. On a higher zoom one can see more points (like Ashburton and Hinds). But surprisingly, there are no more points southward from Hinds. I found it quite weird, as Google Earth shows nice coverage for all country.

                      • My Mode S Beast has arrived, I'll probably get it up and running first thing Friday on my first day off

                        It will be interesting to see what happens to my coverage compared to the dongle.

                          As fare as I have been able to follow T-NZWN2 has been very impressive. The constrains on you will probably be the terrain around you. Of course the Beast is more powerful than the dongle, but would think elevation of the antenna is the most important improvement you can do.

                          Btw. Do you run a weather station as well?

                            I used to run one at www.41south.net.nz. It's been down since I shifted houses a few months back but it is on the list to get back back up and running - along with a webcam that will overlook the airport.

                            • I am asking for a friend who is interested ....what did it cost landed in NZ ? Are there full instructions in English ?

                              Comment


                              • I purchased mine via JMZ Store. It's the single channel complete kit which was 292 Euro - landed in NZ around $420 NZD

                                Instructions are all available here http://www.modesbeast.com/how-to-complete.html for building with lots of other info off the Mode-S Beast website as well.
