You cant just scan in carrier squelch mode? I suppose you could cobble up a tone detector and and wire it accross the noise squelch somehow to stop scan. But it would have to react to the data as well.

Man RFI-EMI-GUY You are good at copying and deciphering borderline readable text.

You are like a really good police dispatcher picking up a mobile unit out of the noise with a 3db Sinad or lower signal.

Me, I only copied 25% of what he was trying to say.

Is your receiver in the AM mode? APRS is FM while ACARS is AM as I recall. Also your antenna needs to be outside and away from any computer noise source.

Looks like you got something;
To start, run the squelch wide open so not to miss any preamble. Also this might be a slow day for air traffic. You might also check the web for ACARS test files. They will be audio files with tones, you can load them in a smartphone and play them into your ipad to check settings. The levels of course will depend on your scanner audio levels.
