PlanePlotter and Acars


Well did you order a spare RTL Dongle ? If the Answer is YES why not put it to use with PlanePlotter to decode ACARS.
This video uses SDRSharp and Virtual Audio Cable Software (Trial). I will admit I am No Expert with SDRSharp but I can get it working for ACARS
Here I run RTL1090 (Mode-S) first then use a second dongle for Decoding ACARS.

NOTE: Personally I don't use this setup anymore as AcarsDeco2 can output Acars messages direct to Planeplotter on port9742
