    Computer message

    Hi delcomp

    You will hear small compact digital sounds coming in with variuos
    smaller or bigger silent periods
    You need to connect the scanner to your computer sound-card
    and put a decoder program on the computer
    and you will have these small text messages
    and here is another link to decoder programs (above is other)

    Audio out from the bearcat (e.g. headphone jack) --> double ended male cable ---> audio-in port on your computer.

    Hi,
    and if you have two receivers you can watch ACARS on two channels at the same time (left and right channel). I am using acarsd and it works fine for some 100km. And you get pictures of the planes. The only thing I am missing are position reports, There are not a lot.
    But, the reception is not allowed in all countries, because ADS-B is send to everyone the airband might be a protected band.

    ps: if somebody likes to look a bit into the traffic over greece: http://www.sv1lh.net:8080/

    Hi,
    no problem at all. Works fine here.
    Connect Antenna, connect sound output from SBS1er to PC sound input. At the SBS switch radio on and to airband/AM. Put in the frequency (f.ex.131,725). Connect internet to PC. Run Acarsd. Setup home position. Correct the input level at PC if needed.
    Thats all.
