  • What does the radar code prefix mean? Please add a legend to the FR24 FAQs

    I've read the 'How it Works' and 'FAQs' sections more than once but could not find the answer to this: what does the prefix, or first letter of the radar code mean? It would be handy if somebody could add a brief legend somewhere in the FR24 documentation, i.e:

    F-xxxx = ...
    T-xxxx = ...
    N-xxxx = ...

    [any other radar code prefix...]

    Radar: NET1 = Users feeding from Planeplotter software.
    Radar: T-F4V = Network receivers all over the world from AirNav Systems ADS-B Data Network.
    Radar: T-FAX = Network receivers all over the world.
    Radar: F-xxxx = FR24 boxes / Hardware feeders.
    Radar: T-xxxx = Users owned boxes uploading to FR24 / Software feeders.
    Radar: N-xxxx = Networked SBS-1 users uploading.
    Radar: R12* R13* are just temporary codes assigned automatically by the system, before FR24 receivers have been assigned correct code manually.
    Radar: R1a* = Temporary Radar codes on the upload Software & Server.

    NET1 are the people feeding from Planeplotter.
    xxxx is our first "ModeS.exe" Windows software.
    N-xxxx is the "old" NET2 network, a network that FR24 is working with.
    N-xxxx is also used by our FR24 receiver that we are installing on strategic places.
    T-xxxx is our new Windows software (still in late beta testing stage).

    Our goal is to move all feeders from xxxx to T-xxxx in about 2 months time. 100 are already moved and we hope to have 200 moved before the end of April.

      Thanks Jarod, the first link seems to be broken, but your post contains all the information I was wondering about.
