I, have one unit each of Ping 1090i and one unit of Ping Rx (1090/UAT). I have configured both with Arducopter 4.0.3 based Pixhawk boards and are able to successfully receive the position reports from the surrounding aircrafts in our area on the Mission Planner GCS. I now need to check the transmitted position info from my Ping1090 transceiver on the Ping Rx receiver on it’s respective connected GCS (Mission Planner). Though I am able to see positions from other large aircrafts, I am not able to see the position from our other Ping 1090i transceiver. Please suggest a method/steps how I can test the transmission from Ping 1090i transceiver.
For configuration of Ping 1090 module, I have done it by means of Pixhawk itself. I don’t have the ping programmer. I have set the appropriate call sign and ICAO id, alongwith the type set to Rx and Rx enabled, ensured GPS fix as well. For Vso the default value being 1 knots as per support documentation, is the only param I am unable to configure via Pixhawk. But we have ensured I am flying way beyond the Vso, my cruise speed is 24knots. Is there also any minimum height only after which it starts transmitting? Or is there any other setting/parameter I am missing.
Kindly suggest a method/steps how we can test the transmission from Ping 1090i transceiver.
