Beacon Decoding Software on-line

If you would like to determine the beacon country code you need to obtain the 15 HEX id of the beacon and use the Beacon Message Decoding Program.

Just input the 15 HEX code to the appropriate field and press decode. Note the link to ITU List of MID Country Code Numbers if the country code displayed only in view of digits.

406 MHz beacons are identified by the content of the message that they transmit. Within the Cospas-Sarsat System beacon message content is identified using the hexadecimal representation of the binary bits encoded in the beacon, and are presented in either a 15, 22 or 30 hexadecimal character representation.

15 Hexadecimal Identification

All 406 MHz beacons, regardless of message format (i.e. long or short) or protocol, should be coded so that the combination of bits 26 through 85 is unique. For beacons coded with variants of the Standard Location or National Location protocols, the 15 hexadecimal identification is calculated assuming the position bits in the first protected field of the message are set to their default values as specified in document C/S T.001 "Specification for Cospas-Sarsat 406 MHz Distress Beacons".

The 15 hexadecimal representation is the beacon identification commonly used in referring to a beacon, and is used operationally as the identification in Cospas-Sarsat distress alert messages sent to SAR services.

22 Hexadecimal Representation

Short format messages (bit 25 set to "0") are comprised of 112 bits. Since bits 1 through 24 are required for synchronizing the decode equipment, only bits 25 through 112 are available to be programmed with message content. The hexadecimal representation of bits 25 through 112 is referred to as the beacon 22 Hex representation.

30 Hexadecimal Representation

Long format messages (bit 25 set to "1") are comprised of 144 bits. Bits 1 through 24 are required for synchronizing the decode equipment, therefore, only bits 25 through 144 are available to be programmed with message content. The hexadecimal representation of bits 25 through 144 is referred to as the beacon 30 Hex representation.

 

Products

406 MHz ELT Tester (Test Set)

406 MHz / 243 MHz / 121.5 MHz ELT TESTER is designed to check the avionics emergency locator transmitters (ELT) operating via COSPAS-SARSAT system. It provides accurate testing in volume of annual or maintenance requirements or fast check after ELT's encoding or installation in accordance with USA (FAA Part 91.207), Canada (CAR 571 Appendix G), Europe (CAA/EuroCAE) requirements.

ELT Tester Mini w/ Wi-Fi

ELT Tester Mini w/ W-Fi is third generation device designed to check the avionics emergency locator transmitters (ELT) operating via COSPAS-SARSAT system. Tester is operating with any mobile phone or desktop PC by means of Wi-Fi connection. It is small and light-weight. The ELT tester provides demodulation and complete decoding of Cospas-Sarsat messages. Test results will be displayed in your mobile phone, tablet or PC. All tests will be stored in internal memory for future use.
