discrete code

discrete code

Any one of the 4096 selectable Mode 3/A four-digit SSR (secondary surveillance radar) codes whose last two digits are not “00” (e.g., discrete codes: 0010, 1201, 2317, 7777; nondiscrete codes: 0100, 1200, 7700). Nondiscrete codes are normally reserved for radar facilities that are not equipped with discrete decoding capability and for other purposes such as emergencies (7700), VFR (visual flight rules), aircraft (1200), etc.

If the vector product of an odd number of at least three spreading codes at the same spreading factor results in a code of all ones (i.e., predicting [C.sub.n](0) where [2.sup.n] is the spreading factor and [C.sub.n](0) is code number zero with that spreading factor), then, for that permutation, no discrete code spur will be produced.

I went back to squawking the assigned discrete code. If I had not initially contacted Bangor Approach, I would have blissfully continued the flight squawking 7700 since the right hand control yoke blocks visibility of the transponder.
