• 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:

Somewhere in this room. Right now, you're very col
I need a link to an older version of PDW - 2.10 preferred. 2.14 keeps crashing on my system and 2.10 was stable but I lost the drive I kept that version on. PM or reply here is fine, either way.

For the legal beagles out there, I use it for ACARS monitoring and not that other taboo stuff it can do. ;-)

Thanks!

V1.11c, V1.11f, V1.21, V2.0, v2.12 as well as the current version are available in the files area of the yahoo POCSAG group.

However, for ACARS I find acarsd infinitely better:
http://www.acarsd.org/

This is a freeware linux/windows ACARS decoder which will also allow you to connect to other people's systems in a client/server relationship as well as decoding your own stream (which you can make available to others if you want). Thumbnail images of the aircraft decoded can be seen.

If you'd rather spend money (not a lot!) then Planeplotter works very well:
http://www.planeplotter.com/
This decodes the messages but is especially good at extracting and plotting embedded position reports.

For pure decode ability then Lowe Airmaster for windows is about the best but requires pre-XP windows and a serial interface. Probably only available second-hand now.
