Black Cat ACARS

A full featured program that decodes and displays VHF ACARS transmissions, available for macOS and Windows.

Tune your VHF radio / scanner to an ACARS frequency and feed the audio into your computer's sound card input, and start receiving and displaying ACARS transmissions in minutes.

"Have compared your new ACARS decoder to Multipsk and a very expensive commercial decoder. The commercial one would show 4 received and decoded, Multipsk (has never been a great ACARS decoder) did one where your new decoder had 15 received and decoded in the same time frame. Very impressive. Also discovered your Plane list, and Message list windows which are very handy."
- Jerry Schmidt
