    I'm seeing the same thing in the North Atlantic tonight. I don't believe there is radar that reaches out that far into the ocean. See the attached file. T-FAA1.jpg

    The radar code is primary for FR24 internal use. As mentioned many times before the radar-code data is not trustable and the radar code shown is not always the real source of the data. FR24 are merging data from many different data sources and we use the radar code while making some back-end changes in order to identify some parts of the system.

    Aloha All,

    The T-FAA1 aircraft are yellow on my Chrome browser PC, as well as my iPhone app. I'm looking out mid way between Hawaii and the US mainland and seeing T-FAA1 contacts close by T-F5M contacts, which are orange.

    Maybe someone needs to email FR24 Support to find out.
    They might not see this thread.

They are typically beyond range of any land based radars in Hawaii!! Can anybody shed some light on what the T-FAA1 radar designator signifies?

    FR24 Support, Can you answer cptok's question and tell us how a "yellow" feed can occur out of line of sight for any ground based stations within more than 1,000 NM?

    Not trying to be critical, but haven't seen any forum traffic explaining a T-FAA1 radar, my apologies if I missed it, or worse, them!

    Mahalo,

    I remember MarineTraffic.com saying how cool it would be to have a ship uploading recieved AIS data while out at sea - wouldn't it be cool to do the same thing with an on ship F- receiver...
    (might have to disable the distance limit on uploader though)

    T-EST1 was an 'estimated' location. Based on a mixture of sources of previous contact info I beleive

    I saw T-EST1 earlier today between Vanuatu and Fiji. It was yellow and was a plane that was previously showing up normally on one of the FR24 feeders at Vanuatu.

    T-FAA1

    Seems to have begun showing up on trans Pacific targets. They are yellow, suggesting that they are "real time" as opposed to the delayed FAA data which shows up as T-F5M. What is this new feeder?

    Yes it's 5 or 10 minutes of estimated position.

    started a topic T-EST1

    T-EST1

    Seems to have popped out out of the blue on the map...T-EST1. Appears everywhere where I had a look around Asia map. Is this to show estimated position after last radar contact?
Working...
