  • Name of radar missing

    I noticed, recently, that the name of the radar that is providing flight information, is missing.
    It used to be one of the last entries of the flight information together with Squawk code and Lat/Lon.

    Is there a reason for it or is it a bug?

    When the craft is out of ADS-B range, it will be picked up by FAA or US/Canada radar. Or it may be MLAT which also doesn't show up.

      Understood, but that's not what I am talking about. That are landing, taking off, and moving about an airport that is line of sight from my antenna are not showing that they are being picked up by any radar. This guy was landing at CYYZ and was most likely being picked up by my antenna/radar.

          Well, whadddaya know... There it is, But why hide it and have to click. It used to be right there. I'd say a lot more meaningful and interesting than ICAO 24-bit address.

            It takes away the temptation for people to log fault causing complaints about wanting to see their ID shown there

              Oh, you mean people want to see "Dushan" instead of F-CYTZ1?

                  Oh, OK I don't have this problem. Mine's on a 20th floor, 15 km from CYYZ. Every maintenance truck, tug, wildlife control, and aircraft are always picked up by me.

                    You can still put in a filter with your radar.
                    That will show all aircraft tracked by you.(or looks that way..)

                      The fliter will only show aircraft "assigned" by FR24 to a specific radar. Not all aircraft tracked by the actual station.

                      Right now my receiver's tracking 110 aircraft. Using a filter for my feed, FR24 shows it's tracking just one.

                        I think that was always the way.
                        I use Radarview to look at how many my setup can "see" and how far out I can track.
