The scrambled data is fully decoded inside Basestation. With its new TCP port they can feed this unscrambled data. No firmware change neeeded.
Does this mean that the data stream from a classic SBS-1 gives different information ? The classic SBS-1 will output to Planeplotter on Port 30006, same as the -1e and -1er so unless
the newer versions give additional information I can't see how a classic cannot be used. Also, if what you need is indeed RAW data then surely a Firmware fix to the classic could sort
this out. Having said that, on Radarspotters site it is implied that there is no more support for the classic as it is no longer manufactured. Maybe the cost of creating a new Firmware
is prohibitive. Maybe though, owners of the SBS-1 classic would pay for this Firmware if it meant not having to spend hundreds of pounds on a replacement unit (for those of us that
want Beamfinding capabilities).
