Re: flight routes? potential bug or (ahem) pilot error

I see what you mean, but callsigns can be just about anything, at least in the US. Occasionally they are a bit vulgar. I suppose a refinement would be to not add callsigns for aircraft that don't exist in the database.

flight routes? potential bug or (ahem) pilot error

First the background. Lately I have been getting odd ICAO codes. These codes have very slow speed and are always on the ground. They use the callsign OPS. It is a guess that perhaps KSFO has put some mode-s on ground vehicles. Nobody is really sure. The reason KSFO is suspected is all the ICAO/regis...

Re: Suggested Amp (Read Cheap)

You can do about 140 statute miles with the crappy antenna that comes with the dongle. I have a 1090MHz J-pole that works better than the DPD in side by side tests. It was tuned for 1090MHz with an Anritsu Sitemaster. On my list is to take a photo of it and measure it more accurately. However, I gav...

Re: More then one basestation option

I guess I don't understand the question. Why can't you put the different receivers on different ports, then let VRS display both of them.

Re: Interested Field

Is the interested field implemented now? This is one feature I could use. I track a lot of, well, interesting planes. ;-)

Re: VRS on opensuse on Arm

I thought it might prove beneficial to compile each dll in mono. I think this is a linux only thing. Basically mono --aot=full whatever.dll Now two of the dlls won't compile. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ mono --aot=full VirtualRadar.Library.dll Mono Ahead of Time compiler - compiling assemb...

Re: VRS on opensuse on Arm

If you pick the "no google map" mode, you can't do the free form reports. That is a problem for my use.

Re: VRS on opensuse on Arm

I do need the webserver part going, but the ability to not load google maps is OK. Basically where i plan to use it, I won't have internet service. Just the list of planes and the database would be good. If the program can be fooled by caching maps, that would work. I have noticed when I run VRS in ...

VRS on opensuse on Arm

I'm trying to make a box that will run dump1090 and VRS on a beagle bone black (henceforth called BBB), with a wifi connection to a smartphone to display the tracking. I'm hoping at least the list of plane flying can be shown on the smart phone. The lack of an internet connection will make Google ma...

Re: VRS under opensuse 12.2

I've run VRS under suse 12.2, though I'm on 12.3 now. It works with some minor complaint or two that doesn't seem significant. I'm on my windows box at the moment, so I don't recall what the complaint is. Anyway, have you insured your mono is up to date. Why not just upgrade to 12.3 and see what hap...
