Let us know..
I'm aware of what decoding encryption is and that it's illegal. Not interested in that. I don't need to do to jail over a hobby gone too far.
And I have seen people on here talk about Acars I think that's something to do with planes but have no idea what they are hearing/seeing with this.
In my most recent attempts at digging around I was seeing mostly seeing stuff in relation to your "B" and "C" answers above. Like decoding control channels and other stuff like that.
Would be nice if there was a website that would explain the basics of decoding and all the things that you can decode (category wise) within reason and the type of stuff you'd see/hear if you did.
As you can see I really haven't a clue what I'm talking about here so bear with me as I'm trying to learn.
