good find, that would be a replacement for the Zaon. this one looks even better and close to the Zaon MRX but more expensive.
More info: http://www.monroyaero.com/ATD300Webpage8.pdfThe ATD-300 continuously monitors the onboard transponder and displays its pressure altitude data when there is no traffic activity. The purpose of this monitoring is to ensure the transponder is functioning properly but also to let the pilot know he is in area of active Mode A/C interrogation since the onboard transponder is replying. It also verifies proper functioning of the ATD-300. As required by the FAA the ATD-300 uses the onboard transponder altitude data to compute traffic relative altitude.
How do you determine range if you don't know your own altitude?I don't think the altimeter matters much for our application. My PCAS unit works great for finding low flying planes. All you need is some range estimates from a mode C (or S ) radar transponder. Think about it, an aircraft doing traffic enforcement is likely to be only 1000-2000 feet overhead, not much vertical separation to you the driver on the ground.
Do you think government owned Cessnas would have ADS-B units in them?There are currently Very Few ADS-B units out there. It is the future - but not much yet. We have the unit for weather and traffic (receive only) in our plane, no updated transponder yet, and it shows very little traffic. My buddy set the unit up in the plane so I am not real familiar with the "working" details as compared for auto use, I will have to ask him more details.
Like scuba diving, the answer is going to vary by person as to how long before their oxygen level drops. Example, pilots that fly regularly in Colorado, will routinely fly above 6500ft, and have no effects, while others in the flatlands will notice effects at lower levels.itwasntme said:
Here's a screenshot of JBV1's Proximate Aircraft Warning System (PAWS) at work...I just recently started to play with my Raspberry Pi 3B+ and a cheap SDR dongle. I installed PiAware and am able to see planes up to a few miles away using the cheap tiny antenna the dongle came with. There's another Raspberry Pie project that I've been looking into, called Stratux, it's an open source equivalent to the Stratus ADS-B receiver. I ordered a USB GPS dongle and will play with that for a bit. PiAware is really cool, you can see a map and planes around your location. You connect to the Pie via it's IP/webpage, you can use a phone or tablet so that would totally be integratable in a car. Next step would be a LED panel or small LCD with arrows and distance of plane and tail number, add a buzzer and you got a cheap ADS-B receiver / Collision Avoidance System for $25~$35 for the RasPi + $15 SDR dongle + $15 USB GPS.

here's a screenshot of PiAware from my iPhone.
This would be cool too www.stuffaboutcode.com: <Stuff about="code" />: Raspberry Pi PiAware Aircraft Radar
I've been using JBV1 for a couple months now, I've never seen a PAWS alert. Is the map popping out when the alert is happening? Your app made me love my V1 btw, I'm still on the learning curve - there's just so much options, but I absolutely love JBV1 and would never use my V1 without it!
