    AcarsDeco2 - multi-channels console RTLSDR ACARS decoder

    This is console (command line) up to 3-channels ACARS software defined radio (SDR) via a RTL2832 dongle receiver and decoder program that can do, for example:
    C:\>acarsdeco2.exe --gain 38.0 --freq-correction 65 --freq 131550000 --freq 131725000 --http-port 8090 --vrs-url --outConnectUdp sbs: --outServer ad2:30008
    --gain 38.0 - setting gain for receiver R820T. Determine the optimal value for your receiving conditions once, for example, in SDRSharp,
    --freq-correction 65 - correction of dongle internal oscillator. This is absolutely critical accurate adjustment for multi-channel receiver,
    --freq 131550000 --freq 131725000 - frequency of ACARS channel, up to 3. The maximum interval between channels with minimum and maximum frequency not more than 1.3 MHz.
    --http-port 8090 - set the port number for HTTP server. Default 8080,
    --vrs-url - network address of VirtualRadarServer for getting aircraft pictures in the WEB window,
    --outConnectUdp sbs: - set UDP client for transmitting ACARS data to PlanePlotter,
    --outServer ad2:30008 - set TCP server for output data on port 30008
