VDL2/ACARS aircraft identification

David Stark
 

Can MultiPSK read from a list or database to identify specific aircraft received via VDL2 or ACARS and show that information on the message screen?

If so, what form must that file take?  What filename would MultiPSK be expecting?

Hello Dave,

 

There is no aircraft data base (as it would be an enormous data file). This is why it is proposed the “Junzis” data access.

A better choice would be the Mike’s Display Launcher which can be interfaced with Multispk (and some others programs).

Or you could open your browser and go to planefinder.net which will identify the aircraft, its current route and current position ona map.

Hi Dave,

Suggest you go to my site as under and download Display-Launcher. This is a freeware suite of programs which interfaces with MultiPSK and displays each VDL2/ACARS message on a spreadsheet type of grid as under and should suite your requirements, it includes a number of databases of aircraft and flight numbers which you can add to as required:-

Steve,

 

There is a possible connection to Planefinder, clicking the « Ser. TCP/IP” button.  Look at the manual (click right on this button), for details.

There is a guide on my WEB site, about this interface with Planefinder.

I'm already using PlanePlotter for mapping and identification on a chart.  I was just wondering if MultiPSK could display such data on its own.  Evidently it cannot.  Thanks for the replies.
