• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

HomePatrol Decoding AIS Data for Vessels/Ships Displaying - Feature REQUEST

What would it take to make HomePatrol show AIS data. :cool:
Displaying the vessels/ships names,Speed,Course,etc on the HomePatrol screen.

HomePatrol Firmware V2.2 ? V3.0 ? :p

* Using HomePatrol from the cruise ship cabin and receiving AIS data. :D
* Using HomePatrol along the coastal / large river areas.
* Using HomePatrol to watch for flying Search and Rescue Helicopters / Aircraft equipped with AIS Transponders.
* Using HomePatrol third-party software 'Virtual Control' screen. It would display more AIS data on the screen.

HomePatrol_OM_V2_Extreme.pdf Page73
Raw Data Output – outputs raw binary data based on the received signal and data slicing parameters you set.
The serial mode will be used for audio streaming, raw data output, and serial control modes. Upon release, software to use these functions is not available, however the protocols have been provided to 3rd‐party software authors for development.
[Add a link to the third-party software. If it works with HomePatrol decoding AIS Data]

This what it could look like :D

I'm waiting for more complete specifications. For example;

There's a checksum value included with each message. Is it ASCII (eg. two decimal digits or two bytes)?

The discriminator audio is a stream of 10 bit samples but at what sample rate?

Paul has sent a request to engineering. We're just waiting.

Im sure its possible and a third party plug in system in the home patrol could be investigated as a further option for future firmware/models...

combined with on board maps .... there are possibilities if not in current generation hardware maybe future ones
