• 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:

I know the tail #, but can't find the ADS-B Hex code

Alright folks, ye that be more learned in this fine art, I feel I have done
my due diligence and now request help. I have been trying to figure out
the hex codes to a small handfull of planes off and on over the past year
with no success.

In some cases I can find out nearly everything about them except the
hex code. If anyone knows a way to find them or strategies to find tricky
ones in general (beyond the obvious Google, FAA databases, Joe Baughner
etc) I would be much appreciative.

Specifically I am looking for:

Serial Type CN Unit

96-6048 UC-27B 208B-0449 427th SOS fiscal year not sure, read as 66048

98-6022 UC-27B ? 427th SOS fiscal year not sure, read as 86022 (might have been 66022?)

90-0168 C-41A 336 ?

Actual tail # General type
------------- --------------
00178 CASA212

00178 is similar in appearance to pics one finds of 90-0168

If you have a special secret technique but you don't want to reveal your methods, thats OK by me. I'll be fine with you just telling me the HEX code of any of them :)
