Yes, I was wrong. Thank you. I did find, 'tho: 'the ratio of ACARS messages which contain position reports, to those which don't, is very small' So that's probably why I wasn't aware of that. Also, I wasn't completely correct with the freqs for either, there may be other freqs depending on location etc
What do you mean, "runs over ACARS"? ADS-B is similar but not the same as ACARS. ACARS is on 131.55 MHz, ADS-B is 1090 MHz, for one.
ACARS doesn't send position data, ADS-B does. The area where this plane went down doesn't have good ADS-B coverage. www.flightradar24 is a good site to learn more.
