I have been away for a few months from this forum and I cannot find the answer in all the messages with the release of Beta 3: is airnav going to do something about the socket output or not?

As far as I can see, there's no change to the socket output in the 3.0 Beta, so it would seem unlikely that it's going to be in the released version.

But given that AirNav have been asking detailed questions about the format, and about its incompatibility with the SBS spec that it's supposed to be emulating, I'm reasonably optimistic that it will be addressed at some stage.

I thought that it was supposed to be modified to only time delay positional messages, not those without position information.

That was certainly suggested, but I don't recall any undertaking being made to implement it.

I think the big change between v2.1 and v3.0 is that the non-positional aircraft are finally available.  It's still kind of a curious mess, but it's way better than it was.

You're absolutely correct, I hadn't picked up on that.

And are these non-positional aircraft records 5 min delayed or not?

All data on port 30003 is 5-minute delayed in v3.0 beta.

Squawkbox works okay with v3.0, albeit 5-min delayed.  Maybe this might get implemented - http://www.airnavsystems.com/forum/index.php?topic=1284

Thanks for the feedback.

Is it me or are only hexcodes with call signs on the port output?

I get aircraft without callsigns on port 30003, using v3.0 beta.  Maybe not in v2.0

Ok. thanks. I'm looking at port 7879 right now, so maybe there is a differance.

Are you running v2.0 or v3.0 beta.  Looking at port 7879, I also see aircraft without callsigns/FlightIDs.

EG:
<MODESMESSAGE>
  <DATETIME>20090702103928</DATETIME>
  <MODES>A8BD53</MODES>
  <ALTITUDE>10700</ALTITUDE>
  <VRATE>0</VRATE>
  <AIRSPEED>000</AIRSPEED>
  <LATITUDE>0</LATITUDE>
  <LONGITUDE>0</LONGITUDE>
  <SQUAWK>000</SQUAWK>
</MODESMESSAGE>

We are happy to announce that RadarBox V3.0 Beta - Patch 1 is now fully compatible with SBS-1 output messages. We changed the way this is processed so all messages will be worked when they are received straight from the box. All formats mentioned above are support including AIR, ID and SEL messages.

We are passing a test exe to 2 beta testers and waiting for their feedback.
