Setting up an ACARS station here in Sac CA and having touble hearing good data bursts.

I monitored ACARS for 6 years in Greece and copied transmissions from all over Med and Europe so I know about the receiver and the antenna and WACARS vo.7 and a computer.

Looking for any LOCAL factors that could be causing my low hit count here.

LOCAL Sactown ACARS monitor; what is your experience?

Obvious questions - radio and antenna? You're going to hear lots more if you have something outside....73 Mike

WACARS not supported...

YA but... still works.

Was looking for LOCAL (SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA) variables...

Thanks.

Can't tell you much about the variables, but I did try monitoring it about 2 years ago, and never got a single valid response. Never tried it again.
That IS strange.

I wonder if Sac is in a Radio-Free Zone.

Thanks for the feedback. Nice to know I am not alone.
