  • BKPR-1

    All the flights in my area Rockford, Il tonight show radar at BKPR-1.

    That seems to be an airport in Germany.

    What am I missing?

    It's actually an airport in Albania. Even better. Even stranger!

    I get the same thing here in the South of the UK. I can see a flight going over my location but when I check to see who's credited with the uploading, it's usually from someone about 100 miles away rather than me. Apparently it's all tied up with (amongst other things) data quality, so presumably the farther away you are, the better the quality of data. At the last check (0953z), I was uploading 77 aircraft to the Planeplotter server. FR24 says I'm uploading 17. There's quality for you !

      There seems to be a 'sticky' situation with the last uploader being reported for longer than normal. I sure don't see the 250nm on my screen that FR thinks I see out to

        absolutely agree. Must be kind of a software thing where it is predicting a bit. Just to show the planes a bit that longer I suppose? (and hence, more a/c?) That's why I always rely on PP to show the the real time data on my local area, and look at FR24 for planes around the region.

        This might be fixed one day?

        As for which feeder is chosen and how, please refer to this link

          Doing the same thing over Arizona!
          It isn't even close to Canada where the airport code is from! so You can't blame the "radar code" is sticky this time!

          Radar: F-CYYT4 = Arizona ? I don't think so!

            I would guess there was some kind off data issue with newly connected feeders. Can't find any abnormalities now.

              Actually, BKPR is the main airport in Prishtina, capital of Kosovo. It is not in Albania.

                Bkpr

                Not sure what I was smoking when I started this thread but the feeder I am referring to is not the subject of this thread.

                The feeder is kdkb1 in Dekalb, Il.

                I actually stopped feeding as it seems pointless. Every flight within 150 miles and more is fed by that station.

                I assume he is atop a cell tower or skyscraper (in Dekalb?) or some such location making anyone else in that area a waste of time and energy.

                  Not entirely "pointless" as there will be gaps and every active feeder gets a free Premium subscription in return.

                    "on the air" presently.

                    There is also an interesting T-LFPO7 (Orly airport, Paris) whose main feeding position is at 240 NM from there at LFLE (Chambéry Challes-les-Eaux ), with some very interesting gliders activities.
