    There are people on here who know more about beacons than I and they may well reply to your query but I guess it comes down to an interpretation issue using data that is incomplete for rendering on FR24. Be aware though that certain aircraft can appear on FR24 over Sydney and other places that look the same as a beacon. On the day of the Martin Place siege there were real but unidentified aircraft over the Sydney CBD and the beacons were also visible - all of them looked alike. You can generally pick the aircraft by their more deliberate and repetitive tracks and sometimes by their varying altitude.

    have been feeding into fr24 for a while now, but my problem is as im very close to YPAD, not much of my data gets sent maybe a max of 10 ac an hour, as most of the time i see xx aircraft removed.
    Virtual Radar Server is decent and free: http://www.virtualradarserver.co.uk

    Do you know what 7CFFBC, BD and BF are?

    Hey Kemistry,

    Can I borrow your antenna to test at my location?

    It must be, as it's lost track of it for a while but I am still tracking it... I thought all this had been cleaned up......

    Is T-YBBN48 feeding FlightAware MLAT positions back into FR24?!? I'm seeing VH-NVK (Polair) on FR24 when it only has it's Mode-S transponder turned on....

    Super balloon is heading around for its second run. Moves fast http://www.csbf.nasa.gov/map/balloon9/Google669NT.htm
    Hopefully when it comes back if it does, it goes over Brisbane, I'd like to catch a glimpse of it!
