Receiving AERO-H on L-Band with an RTL-SDR
Over on YouTube Adam Alicajic (9A4QV – creator of the LNA4ALL and upcoming MIX4ALL) has uploaded a video showing his reception of AERO-H signals from an Inmarsat satellite. A few days ago we posted about how the JAERO decoder had recently been updated to be able to decode these AERO-H signals. These signals contain various messages meant for airplanes, but also sometimes contain news messages.
In the video Adam uses a satellite dish antenna together with his MIX4ALL, an RTL-SDR dongle and the JAERO software. With decent reception he is able to easily decode the AERO-H messages.
