    I think that RYR1T is commonly used as test flight code by Ryanair.

    Error = ADS-B receiver had a problem decoding last transponder transmission made by the transponder.

        Ryanair conducts trainig flights from East Midlands and, as Mike says, the T suffix is a good indication of such a flight.
