acarsdec and vdlm2dec route mode

Post by TLeconte »


My and Linux sdr programs have now a "json route" output mode.
Ie : it ouputs a json line each time it achieve to find a full route for a flight.
Something like that :
Don't expect too much, I got ~ one hundred routes a day and agw tells me that acars routes are not always very reliable because pilots were not always entering the correct routes.
But It could be a start and a good source for routes after some post processing.

PS : you need a VHF antenna for acars ou vdl mode 2 reception
