OK - it's just a test right now, some rough and ready code by Sean. I'll send you the KMZ file direct - it's only 1K. Start Google Earth and position rough over the south of England. Find the KMZ file and just double click on it - Google should find it and start the link up. If Sean's feed is active you should get an instant overlay of all the current UK traffic which is ASDB equipped. The target will show Mode S code and callsign (if the pilot has input this). The screen should update every ten seconds. Two things. It's crude and Sean is still tweaking code so the feed may not always be on. Second is that the datastream will trigger a warning box from time to time when it tries to load data at the same time GE is connecting. In this case just click to cancel the message box and this will stop the live stream. To start it again go to the left panel and right click on SBS Live Update and select Refresh. This will kick it into action again. The data is coming direct from Sean's SBS receiver so coverage is centred on his aerial and limited to what his receiver picks up. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Wilding, Colin Sent: 28 September 2005 17:08 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: Live traffic feed John, Yes to both. Stansted is approx 20 miles away. At work at present and then going to the mind numbingly dreadful "Lakeside shopping centre"; but if it's not urgent, let me know if I can help.

If so I'd like to test a small file which will give you a live feed of aircraft projected onto the Google Earth model. It should bring up all active ADSB equipped aircraft in the area.. bones HC@xxxxxxxxxx http://fsaviation.net ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- This email and any attachments are sent in confidence, subject to applicable legal privilege and upon the basis that the recipient will conduct appropriate virus checks.
