Make XXnnnn ICAO Hex Code appear in VRS

Post by eurolocke »

I mananged to transform Mode A/C messages into basestation format by means of a tool. However, this transformation comes along with a prefix of XX prior to the 4-digit squawk/altitude code to reproduce the ICAO Hex Code. Since XXnnnn is not an ICAO conform Hex Code, it is ultimately blocked by VRS.

Do you guys have any idea how…
1. I can cirvumvent the blocking of non-ICAO conform Hex Codes in VRS (which applies to XXnnnn)
2. I could manipulate the XX prefix to another prefix (e.g 00) that would not be blocked by VRS, instead?

Thanks for your thoughts.
