    Yes, the same.
    Only one proviso that the correction in SDR# was performed with the same sampling rate (1.4MSpS) and, preferably, close to that used in acars frequencies (~130MHz).

    Inside the archive there is a file .txt, in which all the details described.

    sure but du you try keenerds driver?
    How about my idea with an csv output instead of the current logfile?
    It would be more easy to import in a Database.

    --pictures-url <arg> for the ability to take images of the aircrafts from site, which can issue their by http requests

    The truth is I do not quite understand how to put it.

    Hi tonkepen,

    There are three possible variants to add source of pictures.

    1. Images can be placed on the same computer where the program runs. Just put their into existing subdirectory pictures which is inside the static folder:


    No options are required:
    acarsdeco2 --gain 38.6 --freq-correction 64 --freq 131550000 --freq 131725000 --http-port 8880

    2. If anywhere in network there is a HTTP server, then images can be placed on it. For example, put their in the web folder pictures. Check access to pictures via browser:


    To use add the command line option: --pictures-url
    acarsdeco2 --gain 38.6 --freq-correction 64 --freq 131550000 --freq 131725000 --http-port 8880 --pictures-url

    3. If simultaneously with "ACARS" you are receiving "ADS-B" from the same aircrafts in VirtualRadarServer:


    add the command line option: --vrs-url
    acarsdeco2 --gain 38.6 --freq-correction 64 --freq 131550000 --freq 131725000 --http-port 8880 --vrs-url
    and you'll able to obtain pictures and other data from VRS in acarsdeco2's WEB:

    Thank you for your comprehensive explanation, so glad. I understood perfectly.

    I remember that there was a software network to automatically come down like the pictures of the aircraft as you were going to receive, and you kept them in your folder dijeses him, but I do not really remember his name.

    Well thank you very much again.
