JAERO is the only AERO decoder I know of at the moment. Remember that for position reports you'll need to receive the C-band (requires a large dish). L-band ACARS is the uplink portion.

For JAERO you'll need to use something like SDR# to pipe the audio to it. For Inmarsat martime messages its the same process as JAERO, but use the Inmsarsat decoder instead. SDR# is probably the easiest one to use for piping audio.

The Outernet software can only receive the Outernet Signal at the moment.

I have one set up and running.

My advice is to try and see if you can find the Outernet or at least other Inmarsat/Alphasat L-Band signals in SDR# first. The antenna should be used outside as often even a window will attenuate too much.
