Radio

Winradio 305e, a Software Defined Radio receiver

Virtual Audio Cable, for relaying audio signals (is there an open source solution?)

Tune to: 
ACARS: 131.725 MHz (Europe, primary), 131.525 MHz (secondary)
AIS: 161.975 MHz and 162.025 MHz

Youtube: The Invisible Battleground. Radio Interference



More Software

Stellarium (incl. orbital elements for satellite position prediction and satellite radio frequency info)

JDDE, access DDE (which for some reason is the de facto standard format for communication between ACARS tools) from Java (and thus also Processing)
Antennas

We have one HF stick that should also work for freqs. above 160 MHz

Building a dipole antenna, e.g. for the marine band: 
a guide, a video

A Processing Sketch using a thread that waits for ACARS messages received from acarsd (using JDDE), parses the message for the airplane registration ID and downloads an image of that plane.
