    ACARS Modes

    What is the difference between Mode 2 & Mode H?
    Are their other modes?
    If so what are they?

    So far today I have seen modes

    2, E, O, G, & X

    The mode is a single byte field unfortantley i cannot find any other information except for them being defined in a standard Somewere.

    Yes, I've also seen 1 & A in addition to those.
    I'm still searching for a comprehensive list.

    Hi,
    you will not find a "complete" list. This are the codes used for the receiving/transmitting ground stations.
    They are used with the same code in several parts of the world at the same time.
    You need to find the codes for your part of the world in the internet.

    Hi, again
    only to give you an example how it may look like:
    http://home.kpn.nl/d.barg/db/GROUND.zip
    This is an old file from 2007 which you need to edit with Wordpad or similar.

    Yes thank you for that. I had just established that they were Ground Station identifiers.
