I suspect PlanePlotter has moved on leaps and bounds since you used it...there's no reason why it should crash and the prediction button F9 is there for those that want to use it ....there's also have a hypershare
button which gives five second data updates where ever possible
I have saved the PP logs for both days just in case something of interest crops up at a later date...we can then refer back to them.
The full ADS B UAV test off the Florida coast took place on Aug 10.
I'm here, BT, and abovetopsecret.
It's only been a few months since I used planeplotter, so I don't think it had time for leaps and bounds. Maybe a crawl. I got such god awful support from the vendor that I have simply written off my purchase. In fact, it was the worst support I ever got from a "garage shop" software house. Some of these garage shops are great, like Don Starr's Starsoft. The guy from planeplotter simply pronounced there is nothing wrong with the software and it must be my machine. He suggested running it on a different machine, but I built an intel atom with SSD just for the sbs box, so it needs to run on THAT machine. The program tries to access memory out of the allocated memory space. It is a very common bug that is easily tracked down if you compile the program in debug mode. However the vendor refused to compile the program in that mode. He also refused to return my money. Worse of all, after making the payment to Portugal, my Amex card got hacked a month later for a wild shopping spree in Paris. I'm now totally leery of garage shops that don't use paypal. I understand why since paypal does chargebacks if the customer is screwed. If your product is a bit flaky, paypal could be a problem.
Anyway, this is getting off topic. I'm going to download the liveatc and then time compress them (take out the gaps) and hopefully discover a funny callsign. It's kind of mind numbing, so I put the audio on my phone and use it as background when hiking.
