    Not really that novel an idea. In the UK, many moons ago, there were frequent issues with BA intercity shuttle flights using calls like BA4682 BA4826 and so on. The resolution, which I think may still be used, was callsigns such as SH6T (Shuttle 6 tango) with the 6 for the London-Glasgow and various other numbers (I cannot recall the rest) for the remaining London to provincial city flights. For some reason there was never a Shuttle 1 Tango.

It's a tracker a bit like FR24, run by enthusiasts but with a limited range over mainly SE Qld /NE NSW. There is no playback facility as far as I know so you have to pick up the plane live while it is within range. Very few aircraft except combat military types and law enforcement are blocked.
    I have to wonder why anyone wants to have their aircraft appear as "BLOCKED". Nothing is more certain to draw attention to that aircraft and given that there are any number
    of sites that do not filter aircraft, its easy to find out what it is. Who worries about generic aircraft eg GLEX they draw little attention and by at least giving the type it satisifys
    the interest of most observers.

    Thanks for the details, I just checked it out pretty impressive with an 11000 km range, it could easily make Honolulu.

    I notice that today we seem to be back to T-EST dashed lines pretty much everywhere - no more YSSY feeders with an apparent range out to near Fiji if the plane is a bit too south of Noumea.

    Thanks for the explanation. Glad to hear you are going to put it back up out there but it's a bloody long drive all right. BTW I don't suppose you also own T-YBDV1? That's Birdsville for anybody who doesn't know the airport code and as far as I know there has never been a feeder out there but I have also seen that one briefly around north-east NSW.

    Thanks Gregg

    Update: It seems once a flight is covered by an Aussie receiver the track immediately changes from a solid line (darker purple) to dashed black line and the FIR changes to the correct area
    .

    I also saw that this morning watching QF96 and VOZ2 coming into Sydney
