  • Suggested Improvement for FR24 MLAT plots on FR24 Windows version

    Hi FR24 folks,

    I have noticed a _LOT_ of plots appearing in South East Queensland with the 'T-MLAT3' radar attribute. That is great.

    Sadly, they display with 'Unknown' and 'No Callsign' on the Win FR24 Premium page - although the rest of the aircraft details display correctly in the Left Hand panel after clicking on the plot.

    Assuming that thes plots are actually derived from MLAT fixed on the radar replies I understand the reason for the lack of Flight ID since in AU the Mode S Radars are (for now at least) programmed to not request the Flight ID.

    Suggestion:
    I think a better way to display the MLATs on FR24 would be to show the Aircraft S Address with the plot as in the iOS FR24 APP where the Mode S Address (ICAO Hex) displays as the callsign.

    An even better way would be to do the look up and pop the Aircraft Registration into the Callsign display field.

    .....

    Anyway - thanks for a great service and the opportunity to contribute.

    cheers
