Hmmm the first test is not good, no change.
Just tracked a flight from YMLT Launceston to YMML Melbourne and lost the tracking at the same place as before
Sorry guys

Hi all,

On this Saturday, me and Shouriken will perform some tests around LROP airport with our RBs. As I mentioned before, besides the high altitude flights problem, I've also noticed a problem for the app/dep airplanes around LROP airport. Hope this has also something to do with the "blind rectangle". Probabily, the LROP's neighborhood forms such a rectangle. I didn't have time to test the port 30003 output (to see the +/- 360 deg problem) but I'll do that in this weekend (for the both problems: high altitude flights and LROP's app/dep flights).

Thanks to all of you for the investigations!

Victor

Hi, thinking about buying the radar box, if after 1 years free network , i decide not to subscribe further , will this stop me getting updates i.e. registrations of new aircraft etc.If not on the network how wud this be obtained.Also i have purchase the ACARS program, 12 mths ago, without even using it yet, is it possible to run ACARS and Radar box together

Gregg in short everything except nework sharing of aircraft will work after initial 12 months.
Only sharing data wont work

hi mike.
I hope airnav can get you sorted out soon, and we can get the new software,
but if you think about it MIKE look at the support you are getting unbelievable.
I think its a great credit to airnav for the support they give us all.
from pat

All I can say, is at the speed you guys are troubleshooting this, you should be done by the time we all head to Mecca in the spring...

Thanks Pat, yes they have been very helpful, I am in contact via email with Andre, have sent him some recordings and port 30003 captures , hope they can fix this soon.

The problem is that the encoding algorithm, and hence the decoding algorithm, are fairly nasty and complex. It also seems there is something to do with the location of the user, but maybe that's just because of where the aircraft are expected to plot.

It's only recently that there have been enough users in SE Asia, Australasia and NZ for this to have become noticeable.

But a test suite for the program would be really useful for catching odd bugs by feeding systematic data into the decoder and checking what it outputs against known correct data.

The problem isn't that the decoding algorithm is complex - it's that it hasn't been implemented properly !

One reason for which is that it is complex, and the corner cases have not been checked properly.

Hi airnav.  I am more than happy to assist with the testing of the updated software as I have had my mysterious large rectangle of nil coverage from day 1.  Feel free to contact me if you would like me to test out the updated software.  Regards  Mark
