Re: Database connect issue

Hello netts77, Could you please explain in more detail why you think there is no connection to database? Please also check the connection: open a Windows command prompt and enter: ping 85.25.235.202 When I tried to run ModeS Logger 4.1a on a Win10 machine today it was saying “Hardware disconnected” ...

Re: Errors since yesterday using modesfiltered

Albert confirmed the server outage.

Oh, by the way it should not have been necessary to restart the tool. At least the V16 just logged exceptions and kept going.

Re: Errors since yesterday using modesfiltered

Hi skaw,

the log says there have been problems with the server. My station also reported exceptions until 16:38.
So it is not your station nor the tool.

Regards

The log entries in your post show format errors of five type 3 messages. The position info consisting of latitude an...

Benefits of using modesfiltered: command line interface, scripting

You can adapt the start script to your needs. If you want the output of each run of the program to be appended to the log file and not overwritten, change line 26 of the original script: java -jar $PROG >> $LOGFILE 2>>$LOGFILE & If you want the logfile to have a date stamp, replace line 15 of the or...

Benefits of using modesfiltered: offline mode

If you want to gather data without being connected to the Internet, you can start the tool with option -nosql. If set, the program logs type 1 and 5 messages (identification and surveillance altitude) to a file called loggedMSGs.csv. No data will be transferred to the server / website.

Benefits of running modesfiltered on a RPi: low power consumption

Since modesfiltered is Java based, it can run on different hardware. In the photo below the software runs on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B with a RTL-SDR dongle. On the right hand side you see a power-measuring device Voltcraft Energy-Check 3000. The display shows 3.4 W. Even though this measurement is n...

Benefits of using modesfiltered: time info

In this post I am presenting an advantage of using the logger modesfiltered over the standard windows-client modeslogger. Next picture is a screenshot of the map feature. I have selected a flight of the RAF operated Sentry AEW1 ZH101 on december 28th in 2018 around 11 oclock. If you click the left m...

Re: Joining live-military-mode-s?

The "Location online" on website should not be considered as a measure for "fall out". The table is cleared every minute. The "active" time strongly depends on location. A normal station has around 20 reports per day between 7 and 16 o'clock. Unfortunately this behaviour is not publicated. I will as...

Re: Joining live-military-mode-s?

What did you mean with EHVK_1304? The first entry is just a log of a report to database. The second part is a format error that has been reported because position information consisting of latitude and longitude was missing in the message. This could be caused by the receiver program. You can ignore...
