3.5 Radios

There are two Software Defined Radio receivers in our SensorBox. They can be used to receive ADS-B and ILS (Localizer and Glideslope) signals. In the future it may be possible to receive also other signals with the same hardware.
In the Radio Menu you can select which signals you want to receive (wifi connection to our SensorBox is required).
In case of ADS-B, the tuner is automatically set to 1090Mhz and no additional input is required. Other aircrafts which are received via ADS-B are indicated in the Synthetic Vision and in the Moving Map.
In case of ILS you need to specify the localizer frequency. The corresponding glideslope frequency is automatically used via the Localizer/Glideslope frequency pairing. The Localizer and Glideslope information is indicated in the Synthetic Vision.
Please note that there is a difference between the 1. published runway heading; 2. real runway heading; 3. Localizer approach course. For this reason an extrapolated approach via GNSS may differ from the Localizer course even if the threshold position is known perfectly. The difference is usually within a few degrees and less noticable with a smaller distance from the threshold.

The latest version of our SensorBox can also receive ADS-B Traffic and Weather via 978 Mhz.
