Re: KerberosSDR & Aircraft Beacon Search

Hello everyone, I come back to you after falling purely by chance on the new website offering the sale of Kerberos SDR; I would have liked to have news about its evolution since May and if it becomes as functional as I could see it thanks to the videos of "SignalsEverywhere". I am very pleasantly su...

Re: KerberosSDR & Aircraft Beacon Search

I will probably wait a bit the results of "SignalsEverywhere", no doubt he can tell me more with his tests but I admit that this project interests me if it is applicable in the context that interests me !

Re: KerberosSDR & Aircraft Beacon Search

Interelement Spacing = 2.5 * 0.25 = 0.625m Converted to Radius Spacing = 0.625m / sqrt(2) = 0.44m. So, if I understand correctly; something of that order ? I'm not sure it would work on the roof of a car. https://i.imgur.com/pKRz1y6.png Anyway, I do not already see where to buy Kerberos and if by c...

Re: KerberosSDR & Aircraft Beacon Search

I am interested in the same capability. This is the main reason I purchased the KSDR. We are using the original RTL-SDR for DFing ELTs on 121.5, 121.775, 243, and 406. It works better that the commercial equipment we have been using for years. If it can guide you, I work with the French civil secur...

Re: KerberosSDR & Aircraft Beacon Search

If in any case, it would be possible to work as well in 121.5, as in 406 Mhz; in a pinch with a ground installation and not on the car, I am strongly interested to have the opportunity to try this device in exercise situation, it is the civil protection that may be impressed ! 8-)

Re: KerberosSDR & Aircraft Beacon Search

then you're still looking at an antenna array with a radius of 0.75m which could be quite difficult to drive around with. For that, I do agree, in the rigor realize a removable installation would be the ideal, but it is "wasting time" during the search for the aircraft (in real situation) which is ...

KerberosSDR & Aircraft Beacon Search

Hello everyone, I stumbled absolutely by chance on this project and I must admit that I was amazed by the quality of the idea, only, I would like to know KerberosSDR could be used to search for beacons of crashed planes (121.5 or 121.375 Mhz , the first being the frequency of beacons in real situati...
