With the ever increasing sales of SBS and AirNav boxes, and the community growing at a rapid rate, we would like to get some feedback with regard to a proposal to include Mode-S Hex codes in the 2011 edition of JP fleets. The flip side of the proposal is that we would need to remove SELCAL to accommodate the Hex code field
(Mode-S is a Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) technique with a selective interrogation of aircraft with its unique 24-bit, referred to as the Hex code worldwide address. This enables a unique identification of aircraft removing the risk of confusion due to overlapping signals.)
Further more we would like to have a Hex code look up on Airspace, this will enable you to type in a registration of an aircraft and find the Hex code plus type of aircraft.
We look forward to receiving comments and suggestions on the diversity of Hex codes vs. SELCAL’s for JP, or any other ideas for the future.
