Title: Comstation: GPS and VHF not working
Post by: ElectricCircus on September 05, 2017, 08:10:53 pm
Hi.

My Comstation unit is not receiving GPS nor VHF signals; I donĀ“t know if this should be enabled or corrected someway, or if it is a normal behavior.

Thanks.

Hi Not receiving VHF is an issue being worked on for some time, hopefully they will have it working soon.

Not seeing GPS is an issue you may want to take up with support@airnavsystems.com advising of your problem and unit serial number

I am looking at your plots just now and you are getting reasonable coverage out to 195 Miles

1. You must own a radarbox comstation.
2. you have to figure out its IP4 address in your LAN
3. enter that ip4 of your comstation in your browser e.g. 192.168.100.25

On some receivers the radio part is deactivated for legal reasons (redistribution of ATC comunication is strictly prohibited in some countries e.g. Germany). In many other cases it is deactivated as it caused severe problems with ADS-B reception and as far as I remember system stability. And last but not least in some cases it was reconfigurated for ACARS reception (in my case).

but we shall see what happens soon . I was told originally that it was a server problem .

Glen,

As stated by Ingo and also elsewhere in this and other threads VHF was not applied to any further units as it was causing problems with ADS-B coverage.  As ADS-B is the primary reason for receivers with VHF a nice to have add on the decision was taken to stop the VHF transmissions until a fix was found.  I believe that work is on going to re-instate VHF coverage and to give users control over the frequencies they cover but have no idea when that will be.

Morning Alan,

I thought that this one had already been sorted but it has come on unpopulated : 345504
According to the Spanish register it is :

EC-MQV Bell 412EP c/n 36673. No owner given but presumably INAER/Babcock.

ENT508 : EHEH-LEAL No return flight showing on the boards).
