HF ACARS with PCHFDL

 

PC-HFDL is a piece of software I have always enjoyed using for monitoring HF ACARS, the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System signals on short wave. The most recent version of this software by the aptly-named Charles Brain G4GUO is PC-HFDL 2.042.

 

I have recently connected my AOR AR7030 and Lowe HF250 to the PC once again to take another look. I enjoy having the aircraft that pop up displayed on Google Earth, and also on the much simpler DXAtlas. The image below is from December 2020, the last one I received before year’s end.
