Here is the latest advance in ACARS....satellite [ Inmarsat ] ACARS and ADS as provided by PlanePlotter

Developed over the last few months we have now introduced an orthographic view so that users can choose which hemisphere they wish to view.
The plots are derived mainly by reception of Inmarsat data at 3.5ghz , provided by a network of satellite ground stations around the world.

The above animation shows the system in action.
The traffic is long range/Oceanic . All standard ADS-B / Mode S has been filtered out.
All this is provided free to registered PlanePlotter users , so if ACARS is you interest , then this is the future.
Post MH370 authorities are pushing for all Oceanic traffic to log in via satellite at least every 15 mins. More and more a/c are being fitted with SatComms.
Next year , Iridium will launch a new fleet of ADS-B "in" satellites , which we will also monitor.

This is a great new developing area for radio amateurs / monitors and scanner enthusiasts and if you have a good sized satellite dish hanging around doing nothing [ 1.2m plus] , then you could join our global network of satellite ground stations.

Its a challenge .... but then that's what we enjoy most :O)

I can highly recommend the FlightAware dongle along with a Raspberry Pi for virtual radar. You can set it up to feed multiple sites like FR24 etc, it's a lot cheaper than dedicated systems.

Here's a direct link to my current setup...

I hate to be pedantic, but why is the planet rotating in the wrong direction?
